RESPONSIBLY MADE
2018 FOCUS

We are continuously exploring more sustainable fibres and print processes, and our 2018 collection is our most sustainable yet: 

  • We are SO proud to introduce our new eCom packaging for our online customers that is fully compostable! You can take out your new Tigerlily treasures and plant your satchel - it becomes worm food! It's another positive step towards Tigerlily's commitment to sustainability and the environment.
  • Close to 50% of our swimwear launching in 2018 is made using recycled fibres
  • Over 60% of our print fabrics are certified by OEKO-TEX® which confirms that no toxic chemicals have been used in their production
  • We have increased our 2018 offer of Indian hand-loomed textiles to 30%
OUR ETHICS
Ethical sourcing and sustainability have become an integral part of who we are as a brand.
We are 100% committed to making an educated change towards better practices and conditions for the industry we love so much.
OUR RELATIONSHIPS
We are so proud of our long-standing relationships (10+ years) with most of our supplier base.
Visibility in the supply chain goes far beyond knowing the owners of the factories.
Our Management, Design, and Production Teams regularly visit the offices, factories and even some of the mills that produce for Tigerlily (often 4 times yearly).
We engage with 10 boutique-midscale factories for 90% of our production.
FACTORY AUDITS
We have been conducting 3rd party audits of our factories for almost a decade now.
In 2015 as part of our growing commitment, we appointed globally recognised auditors, Bureau Veritas, to continue our quest for greater visibility.
Bureau Veritas has supported our journey for continual improvement in quality, environmental compliance, and social responsibility. Evaluation is based on our code of conduct, containing standards equivalent to SA800 and Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP).
OUR COMMITMENT

Tigerlily is committed to ethical business practices, the more we learn, the more we realise we have much work to do.

The demands of this will change and evolve constantly as we continue to delve deeper into our supply chain sources, review new technologies and refine production processes.

Since 2016, we have actively taken part in Australian fashion industry forums with Australian NGO’s Fashion Revolution, Baptist World aid and Stop the Traffik.

We believe in working together as an industry to share knowledge and progress towards greater change.

 In 2018 due to the recent changes of ownership and our transition away from the Billabong Group we were unable to complete the survey for this year’s ‘Behind The Barcode’ Ethical Fashion Report, by Baptist World Aid.

 This in no way reflects our commitment to improving our sustainable and ethical practices in all aspects of our business. Our 2018 collection is our most sustainable yet and as we look forward to 2019 and beyond we have partnered with expert sustainability strategist Clara Velutich who is working with our management, design and production teams on delivering and exceeding our goals of: 

Improving our printing methods, sustainability of our fabrications and worker empowerment.
