OUR MISSION

From day one ZEMP has worked towards creating a sustainable fashion brand not only by recycling and repurposing waste within the office and our homes but also by re-using shipping packaging to get orders to you. We have worked from an early stage with our supplier to make sure our products are made in environmentally friendly facilities and in safe and socially responsible workplaces.

Today our factory is undergoing the BSCI certification process with final approval date expected early 2020, the tannery we source our latest leathers from follows protocols that have a negligible environmental impact to protect workers and consumers as well as a comprehensive effluent water treatment plant on site. Those who have followed us since our Jinger Jack origins will notice we’ve opted to return to our signature turquoise lining, now introduced in the form of Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic cotton.

Sustainability is never reached, the goalposts are consistently pushed to higher levels. Our promise to our customers is to continuously improve in all aspects of sustainability.

Eco-Friendly Leathers and Organic Cotton Lining

Natural dyes are used for our turquoise, certified organic cotton lining and all our leathers are vegetable tanned in certified tanneries with minimal water consumption.

 Stonewashed Heavy Weaved JUCO Fabric

Jute is the most eco-friendly, biodegradable and recyclable natural fibre in the world. The organic cotton portion of the blend and the stonewashed finishing add softness and create a unique hand feel.

Social Responsibility

We formed long term relationships with our suppliers who care about their staff as we do. Our factory is BSCI certified and ensures high social compliance standards are met.
