Garment manufacturing has become increasingly global over the last few decades. Some countries specialize in manufacturing raw materials, such as cotton or wool, while others concentrate on making up the garments. This means that Charles Vögele purchases its merchandise from manufacturers in highly culturally and economically diverse countries. Despite this, Charles Vögele expects its suppliers to maintain social standards in the manufacturing of this merchandise, ensuring that the people who participate in the production process are protected.
Environmental issues, product safety and quality are given particular priority in this context of sustainability and social responsibility. The Charles Vögele Group primarily sells its own collections in over 760 stores. These are produced by external contract suppliers. The merchandise is manufactured in various parts of South East Asia and Europe. Over the past few years, supplier events have been held in all the Far Eastern production countries with the aim of improving cooperation and providing training on various topics.
