Esprit to ban the use of sandblasting
07
Feb '11
Esprit will stop the use of the controversial sandblasting technique in its global production chain with immediate effect. The ban applies to all Esprit fabrics and all international suppliers.

Sandblasting is a textile finishing process that is primarily used to achieve a worn look for denim. The method, which involves (sand) particles being applied to garments under high pressure, has been suspected of endangering the health of employees. This is a risk to which Esprit does not want to expose either its employees or Esprit suppliers.

To ensure the health and well-being of its employees, Esprit aims to continuously improve its working conditions and is therefore placing an immediate ban on the use of sandblasting.

The ban against this manufacturing process will apply to both existing and future suppliers. Esprit is currently informing its manufacturers about the new rule. Esprit will ensure that this ban on sandblasting is adhered to during the regular checks it carries out into its manufacturing processes. Esprit has also successfully determined alternatives to sandblasting that produce a similar look in an environmentally friendly manner.

Esprit has always focused on producing products for its customers that are of excellent quality and have an attractive price–performance ratio. Its primary focus is to ensure that each item is produced safely and in a way that does not endanger health. As a globally successful company, Esprit knows that acting in a responsible manner provides the basis for long-term relationships with customers and employees that are founded on mutual trust.
