Indigenous is a brand that focuses on sustainability and environmental responsibility. In our evaluation of the brand’s environmental policies, we have assigned them a “Planet” rating of “It’s a Start”. This rating takes into consideration several factors, including the materials used in their products. Indigenous uses a medium proportion of lower-impact materials, such as organic cotton, which helps to limit the chemicals, water, and wastewater in their supply chain.

However, there is currently no evidence to suggest that Indigenous minimizes textile waste in their supply chain or takes action to reduce packaging, which can contribute to plastic waste. These areas are important for improving their environmental impact, and we hope to see Indigenous address these issues in the future.

When it comes to workers’ rights, Indigenous has received a “Good” rating in our “People” category. This rating considers the brand’s policies and practices related to workers’ rights, including issues such as child labor, living wages, and gender equality. Indigenous partners with independent artisans and has a mission to improve social conditions, which is commendable. However, it is unclear whether the brand ensures that workers in their supply chain are paid living wages.

In our evaluation of Indigenous’s animal welfare policies, we have assigned them an “Animals” rating of “It’s a Start”. The brand does not have an animal welfare policy in place, and it appears that they use materials such as wool, exotic animal hair, and silk. However, Indigenous does not use materials such as leather, down, fur, angora, or exotic animal skin.

Based on all the publicly available information we have reviewed, we rate Indigenous as “Good” overall. This rating reflects the brand’s commitment to using lower-impact materials, partnering with independent artisans, and improving social conditions. However, there are areas where Indigenous can further improve, such as minimizing textile waste, reducing packaging waste, and ensuring that workers in their supply chain are paid living wages. We hope to see the brand continue to make progress in these areas and further prioritize sustainability and ethical practices.
