How are we working with local and international suppliers to promote responsible sourcing?
Polo explores the endless possibilities of materials, styles and cuts to create products that are unique, but identifiable for our consistent Polo handwriting. As Polo does not own or operate any factories, we work together with skilled suppliers that share our passion to make good, quality products.
Our philosophy and priority is to build trustworthy and long-term relationships with these suppliers, in order to ensure continuity of the quality, look and delivery of our collections.
Having started with a shirt factory of our own in 1976, we are committed to supporting our local suppliers. Many of these suppliers re-employed staff from the original Polo Lansdowne factory, and we continue to work with them today. Given the importance of the business relationship with our suppliers, we visit these factories and those abroad, seasonally.
We procure our product according to international standards and practices, ensuring the best factories both locally and globally.
