COLLECTION & ENVIRONMENT
Our high quality products from MADELEINE are manufactured with great care. We guarantee longevity, quality and timeless beauty of our fashion. We like to use pure natural fibers and valuable mixtures of precious materials. When developing new collections, we strictly adhere to the applicable product standards, because the satisfaction of our customers is our greatest incentive.
THE GOOD CASHMERE STANDARD® by AbTF.
MADELEINE is proud to have been a partner of THE GOOD CASHMERE STANDARD® since the beginning.
With THE GOOD CASHMERE STANDARD® by AbTF we support the welfare of cashmere goats and the improvement of working conditions of workers on cashmere farms and the protection of the environment.
These are the main focuses of THE GOOD CASHMERE STANDARD®, an independent standard for sustainable and ethical cashmere production.
Product safety is an important part of our daily activities. In addition to the legal regulations, MADELEINE has developed company-specific guidelines for the safety of our products.
Special teams monitor the product quality in our supply chain. Intensive quality controls are carried out from the development of the collection through production to the incoming goods.

An anonymous grievance mechanism is part of amfori's compliance with the BSCI Code of Conduct. This gives all stakeholders, such as factory employees worldwide, the opportunity to draw attention to possible grievances. As part of an amfori BSCI project to introduce a complaints mechanism, we are participating in an amfori "Speak for Change" pilot. This pilot is currently being implemented in Vietnam with suppliers of amfori members. "Speak for Change" enables employees of suppliers to contact amfori and report concerns, tips and possible grievances in factories. This contact can be made on the web, by e-mail, phone or chat and can also be anonymous. The expansion of the "Speak for Change" complaint mechanism in other countries is planned. As an amfori member we support this project, as we are convinced that employee participation and support of the companies contributes significantly to mutual success and good working conditions.

Working with suppliers at MADELEINE
For the selection of our suppliers, we set high standards for future partners. In addition to contractual agreements that are made prior to a cooperation, we assess the extraordinary quality of the products, compliance with safe and fair working conditions as well as other criteria. We arrange company meetings for a personal impression of the production. We only cooperate if our minimum requirements are met and there is a prospect of a long-term business relationship, as we prefer future-oriented partnerships.
For new suppliers, we communicate our requirements at an early stage and explain the consideration of important sustainability information while working with MADELEINE:
