We have created long-term partnerships with our various textiles Mills, which operate in many regions of the world. These relationships, combined with our knowledge and experience, enable us to assess our different suppliers’ capabilities, their general stock availability and lead-time.
Factors such as a regions history and access to local raw materials can also dictate that Mills in some regions will be able to produce certain types of fabrics to a higher quality standard than those elsewhere.
We understand that price is still an important factor, so we acknowledge the benefits of finding the ideal Mill that can manufacture fabrics to specifications, while still producing them at the right price.
Social and Ethical Responsibilities
Wherever possible Premier Digital Textiles will source from mills that are socially and ethically certified under SA8000, BCSI or SMETA. This helps us give our customers the confidence that we are working with mills that encourage development, and apply and maintain socially acceptable practises in the workplace.
Important areas we focus on are freedom of association, health and safety, minimum wage as set by the state and no use of child labour.
Our mills also practise environmental management by means of reducing energy use by using wind turbines, using recycled materials as an aid to production and packaging wherever possible, reducing water consumption and aiming for zero liquid discharge.
