All FRANCK & FISCHER textile products are manufactured in the far East – Sri Lanka, China and India, and wooden products are sourced from Romania. Each toy or bag is carefully made to give the product the right look and quality. This requires high level of skill of the people making our products, which we highly value.
We have a close and personal relationship with our suppliers. We visit them on a regular basis to maintain the good cooperation and ensure that we uphold the high quality of our products. Most suppliers are GOTS-certified (Global Organic Textile Standard). The standard specifies expected ecology and labour requirements in textile and apparel manufacturing using organically produced raw materials. Moreover, the suppliers are also part of SEDEX, a global membership organization dedicated to driving improvements in ethical and responsible business practices. The suppliers are audited through the SEDEX Member Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA), a leading ethical and social auditing methodology.
All toys from FRANCK & FISCHER live up to European CE-standards. We guarantee that our products are safe for the children using them.
from Sri Lanka
All fabric toys are made from GOTS-certified organic cotton shipped over from India to Sri Lanka.
The toys are made by our supplier in Sri Lanka. The fabric toys range include activity toys, cuddle clothes and cuddly animals. Manufacturing these toys is demanding and great skill and precision is needed to sew different parts that all have to fit perfectly together. The supplier is certified by GOTS and is a member of SEDEX.
All our crochet productsare made from GOTS-certified organic yarn. Each product is hand-made by our crochet ladies from Northern China. Most of them choose to work from home, others go to the factory where they both crochet and pack the finished products. China is changing fast, and the big cities offer education and jobs you will not find in the more rural areas. It makes it difficult to recruit younger women to learn the art of crochet. It takes many years to reach the highest skill level, but the advantage for the women is, that they can stay in the local area, have a flexible job and a stable income without moving away from the family.
Our bagsare produced of heavy canvas made from a mix of cotton and polyester or just polyester. The fabric is very durable and water repellent. The bags include backpacks, duffle bags and pencil and tablet cases. They are REACH tested so we can be sure they are without PVC and phthalates. Our supplier is a member of SEDEX and comes from Southern China.
Toys & Interior Products
India is the biggest producer of certified organic cotton, and this is also where we produce our organic cotton products for babies, kids and nursery. Most products are hand-printed, so sometimes you can find small deviations in print and colours, which does not affect the quality. Our supplier produces toys like fabric books and interior products such as play mats, storage bins and bed linen. The supplier is certified by GOTS and is a member of SEDEX.
Our flagship wooden products– the baby gym and mobile holder – are produced in Romania using FSC-certified birch or beech. The FSC-certification ensures that the wooden products are manufactured in a sustainable way, taking into account environmental factors like reforestation, working conditions for the workers and so on. Similarly, all wooden products are painted with environmentally friendly lacquer.
