Textile companies with social responsibility
Elvang is a design-oriented company from Denmark that is dedicated to the production of blankets, pillows and scarves. The company's vision is to combine Scandinavian design with one of the world's best fibres of Peruvian alpaca. The result is stylish and high quality products, manufactured with pride and integrity!
Textiles from Peruvian alpaca wool
Elvang Denmark is a member of UN Global Compact, the world's largest network for socially responsible companies. Elvang is fully committed to its principles and assures perfect conditions for the suppliers' workers. By training the rural shepherds in the rearing and shearing of alpacas, they are also supported in obtaining better wool. Elvang Denmark promotes the millennia-old tradition of alpaca textile weaving by maintaining the individual production steps in Peru.
Member of the World Fair Trade Organization
Elvang has been appointed a certified member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) since 2018, which is a guarantee that the products are manufactured under appropriate conditions. The WFTO operates according to 10 principles that cover environmental and labour conditions and focus particularly on helping marginalised people.
WFTO certification means that the entire value chain has been examined - both the company in Denmark and its Peruvian suppliers. At WFTO not only the products themselves are certified. It's the whole business. The WFTO operates according to 10 principles that cover environmental and labour conditions, including, for example, child labour, and focus in particular on helping marginalised producers.
