In order to gain even more control over the process, Thirtyfour decided in 2019 to take over its own factory in Delhi, in addition to its own office and warehouse. Shortening the chain makes it possible to work even more flexibly. This also gives us the opportunity to produce more responsibly because we have everything in our circle of influence. In addition to regular production, there is also a department for in-house printing of logo's and there is a possibillity for seamsealing.

Thirtyfour only works with selected suppliers in order to maintain a durable relationship. A thorough investigation precedes a collaboration as we do not just do business with everyone. 90% of our suppliers are located in India. Our team in India assess and visit these spuppliers regularly. Only when we are sure that a company meets our standards and values a cooperation can be expected. Parties with whom we work can therefore count on long-term cooperation due to this thorough selection.


Our factory which is called "The Tailors" employs 70 people. These people are managed by our Indian office colleagues. Because the factory is under our own management, we have a good view of the following:

  • Payment of living wages
  • Reasonable hours of work
  • Holiday entitlement
  • Safe and healthy working conditions
  • No childlabour or exploitation

The Dutch and Indian colleagues speak to each other on a daily basis via Teams, Whatsapp or on the phone. The close contact between both offices provides for each office a clear picture of the work environment and working conditions. The owner of both Thirtyfour and The Tailors visits the factory at least twice a year to  speak to workers in the production area and make sure protocols are followed. In this way, staff satisfaction is guaranteed and monitored in India.


Thirtyfour has since 2023 been a Fair Wear Foundation member for over 10 years.. The Fair Wear Foundation was established to improve the clothing industry. Fair Wear's mission and vision connects perfectly to that of Thirtyfour. The foundation ensures that the affiliated companies produce in an ethical manner. In order to improve the clothing industry, an approach is used that consists of the following core activities:

  • Brand performance check:
    This is a check on the business operations of the affiliated companies. Every year, companies' efforts to improve the clothing industry are measured and assessed. A company then gets an insufficient, sufficient or good for this part. Thirtyfour currently scores good on the Brand Performance Check.
  • Factory Audits:
    Factories are audited by the Fair Wear Foundation. It is examined whether the Fair Wear Code of Labor Practices is met. Based on this visit, the company receives comments and points for improvement. The following year it will be investigated how successfully changes have been made. The first audit in our new factory will take place shortly. Based on this audit, we can draw up a development plan.
  • Factory Trainings:
    The Workplace Education Program trains on-site workers and management in India according to the Fair Wear Code of Labor Practices. This code consists of eight different labor standards, including for example living wages and working hours. Because we have daily contact with our colleagues in India, they now have a reasonable picture of the labor standards that we apply and that they should also apply.
  • Complaints helpline: In our production area there is a mailbox in which employees can anonymously submit complaints and / or tips. In this way, we can discover together with Fair Wear what the points for improvement are from the point of view of our colleagues. The mailbox has been in use since day 1 and all tips are taken along and, of course, followed up where possible.
