Oriental Weavers’ position as a lowest-cost producer does not preclude responsible employment practices. Accordingly, Oriental Weavers adheres to the International Declaration of Human Rights and maintains a set of transparent human resources policies and procedures for management and labor as well as our suppliers and service providers. Absolutely no form of forced or compulsory labour exists at Oriental Weavers. Oriental Weavers only employs adults over 18 years of age, and the Group makes it adamantly clear to all suppliers and affiliates that we will not conduct any business with entities that do not follow the same labor standards. We are vigilant in our efforts to ensure that no child labor is used directly or indirectly in any component of any Oriental Weavers product. As part of these efforts, Oriental Weavers has established a committee that is responsible for enforcing this policy for overseas suppliers of our hand-made products. Members of this committee randomly check supplier locations to ensure that no child labour is being used in their production processes; in the event of irregularities, contracts are terminated on the spot.
