Code of Conduct & RSL

Responsible Down Standard

Products with Down fill are certified with RDS to ensure ethical treatment of animals throughout the supply chain.

The Responsible Down Standard (RDS) incentivizes the down and feather industry to treat ducks and geese humanely and rewards organizations leading the way. The standard also gives companies and consumers a way to know what’s in the products they buy.

Leather Working Group

Accessories using Leather are from LWG certified tanneries.

Leather Working Group (LWG) is a global multi-stakeholder community committed to building a sustainable future with responsible leather.

Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI)
  • Carve works with factories certified with BSCI, a social compliance certification to assess workplace standards across the entire supply chain.
  • We visit 100% of our factories and also have third party auditing to ensure compliance in workplace conditions
Certified Sustainable Materials
RSL (Restricted Substance List)

Carve partners with Oeko-Tex certified suppliers to ensure non-toxic materials throughout our supply chain.

“This label certifies that every component of the product, from the fabricto the thread and accessories, has been rigorously tested against a list of up to 350 toxic chemicals. Trusted Worldwide. Since 1992, STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® has been the world's best-known label for textile safety.”


Every yard of Recycled Polyester Swim fabric (tricot & flyweight) is made from five (2L) plastic bottles.

Nylon used in Carve Swim is generated from industrial nylon waste, including discarded fishing nets & rope.

Rayon, Lyocell, Modal

Lenzing is an industry leader in sustinable production rayon, modal, and lyocell

Our suppliers work with Lenzing for responsible sourcing of raw materials, eco-friendly chemicals, closed-loop water filtration, and ensuring fibers are biodegradable

Materials are sourced from PEFC certified forests, not from critical regions, such as ancient and endangered forests.

Recycled & Recyclable packaging

To offer the most sustainable option, we updated polybags for Spring 2023 to recycled low-density polyethylene (LDPE).

This ensures proper disposal in regions without industrial compost access.

LDEP is made from recycled materials and can be recycled again.

Organic Cotton

No toxic chemicals are used in the growing of organic cotton. It doesn’t damage the soil, has less impact on the air, and uses 88% less water and 62% less energy. Conventional cotton uses about 16% of the world’s insecticides and 7% of pesticides. Textile Exchange commissioned a Life Cycle Assessment on organic cotton and found significant, measurable environmental benefits compared to conventional.

We require suppliers to provide certifications for all recycled & organic materials used on Carve. We also require our suppliers to use Lenzing brand for cellulose fibers to guarantee responsible sourcing of raw materials, eco-friendly chemicals, closed-loop water filtration, and ensuring fibers are biodegradable after production.
