Not only is our wool all British, cleaned and processed in England without the use of bleach or chemical treatments, we use only the best Grade Wool and each batch of wool is checked and certified as such by the British Wool Marketing Board.
Why Certificate all of our wool??
The Certified 100% Wool Mark guarantees that only 100% British Wool is used. There is no wool used from abroad, no scrap wool and no artificial fibres, glues or bonding agents. Each strand of wool we use is traceable to the British Farm from where it came.
You can be assured that 100% Certified British Wool is used in ALL of our wool duvets, wool pillows and wool mattress toppers and this is GUARANTEED, not only by us but also by the British Wool Marketing Board.
MEMBER OF SEDEX - REGISTRATION NUMBER ZC4562488
SEDEX http://www.sedexglobal.com is a non profit Organisation that offers a simple and effective way to manage ethical and responsible practices within our business. Becoming a member involves undergoing an intensive Independent Audit that examines all aspects of our business in detail using the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) Base Code and additional measurements for Health and Safety, the working environment and business ethics as a reference. We are proud to have achieved the standards required in all aspects of our business to be able to become a member of SEDEX.
We are a keen supporter of The Ethical Trading Initiative Base Code which is an Internationally recognised set of labour standards based on ILO conventions - full details of this code can be seen here http://www.ethicaltrade.org/eti-base-code. We are also part of the Fast Forward programme
We are committed to conducting our business with honesty and integrity in a fully transparent way. We expect all of our staff and all with whom we do business to maintain high standards in accordance with our policies and procedures. We operate within many policies to ensure that high standards are maintained and we open our doors for full audits of our business and manufacturing. Examples of these policies/codes are:
Ethics Policy Statement
This policy statement has been created to provide information on Devon Duvets’ approach to maintaining good business behaviour by means of sound ethical conduct, a culture of openness, trust and integrity. It should be read in conjunction with our more specific policies and serves to ensure that all employees are aware of their individual and collective responsibilities.
Trust is one of our most valuable assets but it is also one of the most fragile. One incident, one unprofessional action, one careless comment and the trust we have worked so hard to earn can be lost. That is why the way in which we conduct our business in all areas is as important as the products we sell.
We count on every employee to conduct themselves in a professional manner, uphold professional integrity and make decisions that will preserve the trust that others have placed in us. We expect nothing less from our business partners including our suppliers, service providers and retailers.
We will not tolerate any wrongdoing or impropriety at any time and are obligated to take appropriate measures and act quickly where conduct is not professionally ethical.
