We Take Our Brand Promises Seriously

Last Updated 16th January 2022

We are committed as individuals, as a team, as a community. To be responsible we recognise we have to be accountable, and to be accountable we have to be transparent. Here we share the core policies we follow to ensure we meet our responsibilities.

Modern Slavery, Child Labour & Young Worker Policy

Your can read in detail here our promise and commitment to protect the people of our planet. In the world of fashion and textiles modern slavery remains to be one of the worst offenders globally in any industry. We join forces with all who fight for justice in this area.

Civic Engagement & Giving Policy

We have always been proud champions of paying it forward - just like all of those people who believed in our vision at the very beginning with our 'Build The Mill' campaign. We have created a promise to always pay it forward, you can read here how we do that.

Environmental Policy

As well as caring for the people, we know we must share equal respect for the planet. After all, there is no Planet B and we must remember we are custodians of this shared home for future generations. Our promise to care for the planet can be read in detail here.

Code of Conduct

This is a promise, a code, a way of life and belief all of our team at Prickly Thistle have signed up to. We also encourage all in our supply chain to do the same. You can read here our Rebel Code of Conduct.

Mission Statement

We are most definitely on a mission, and any successful mission must have a statement, a plan, and a list of things that you must never compromise on to ensure that not only you succeed, but you do so with integrity. Here you can read our mission, and hopefully join us!

Responsible Sourcing Policy

We know it's not enough to be responsible for things that are directly within your control, but you must also inspire and influence responsibility to those that you work with. You can read all about how we constantly look to challenge our supply chain to ensure shared values are common and executed.

Corporate Social & Sustainability Responsibility Promise

Social and sustainable practices are at the heart of everything we do! Read all about this big promise and how we use the UN Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 to be our guiding light for change on all 17 goals of significance.

The Bad-Ass Story of our Existence

Where did it all begin, the why then, the why now and the future of why not?
