SUSTAINABILITY

WEST VON is committed to providing both sustainable and ethically made hats.
 
We are proud to work with a manufacturer who is certified in Fair Wages, ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) and ISO 9001 (Quality Management). ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organization with a membership of 165 national standard bodies. Through its members, it brings together experts to share knowledge and develop voluntary, consensus-based, market relevant International Standards that support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges.

All of the wool that our hats are made from is R.W.S Certified.

The Responsible Wool Standard is a voluntary standard that addresses the welfare of sheep and the land they graze on. The goals of the Responsible Wool Standard are to provide the industry with a tool to recognize the best practices of farmers; ensuring that wool comes from farms that have a progressive approach to managing their land, practice holistic respect for animal welfare of the sheep and respect the Five Freedoms of animal welfare.
