Sleeping With Jacques is committed to maintaining high ethical standards throughout the supply chain and we work with our suppliers to ensure these standards are met as part of our broader corporate social responsibility strategy.

As retailers, we expect our suppliers to treat all animals in the supply chain humanely and with respect. More specifically, we require and expect:

  1. animals are to be slaughtered humanely* to ensure minimum distress;
  2. animal products used for general merchandise (e.g. clothing and homeware) are to be by- products of other industries;
  3. animal skins and fibres must not be obtained by live skinning or plucking or be a product of unnatural abortions;
  4. products, including skincare and cosmetics, must not be tested on animals. The raw materials used in these products also must not be tested on animals, unless explicitly required to meet statutory and or regulatory requirements, e.g. REACH;
  5. fur and farmed fur must not be used. However, shearling and hair on leather, which are by- products of other industries, may be used;
  6. endangered species which appear on the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) or the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, must not be used; and
  7. pet accessories are to be developed in collaboration with animal welfare experts.

*The RSPCA’s definition of humane killing is: ‘an animal must be either killed instantly or rendered insensible to pain until death supervenes’.




Sleeping With Jacques conducts its business in a manner that reflects its values and long term sustainability. We are committed to ensuring that the social and ethical implications of manufacturing in all our source locations are considered responsibly.

This Code applies to all suppliers of products and services to Sleeping With Jacques. It is the responsibility of the supplier to ensure that their suppliers and agreed subcontractors adhere to this code.

The provisions of the Code of Labour Practice as adopted by Sleeping With Jacques are over and above the International Labour Organisation (“ILO”) conventions listed, and constitute the minimum standards of operation. Companies are at all times expected to comply with national and other applicable local laws. Where the provisions of the law and this Code of Labour Practice address the same subject, the provision offering the greater protection should be applied. This Code of Labour Practice is based on principals set out in ILO conventions listed below.

At Sleeping with Jacques, our company culture values human rights, respect and integrity above all. We have zero tolerance of any form of slavery.

Modern slavery is the severe exploitation of people for personal or commercial gain. This includes the use of coercion or violence to recruit workers, forced or bonded labour, descent-based labour, child labour or any behaviour that undermines the freedoms or rights of a human being.

We acknowledge and understand that the fashion industry is the second largest modern slavery industry in the world.

As a business that is part of this industry, we believe it is our responsibility to have full transparency within our supply chains; and to actively work towards eliminating the risks of modern slavery.

 Our due diligence practice undergoes a vetting process to ensure that our stakeholders share our values and beliefs regarding modern slavery practices in order to begin and continue business relationships.

We have contractual agreements with out stakeholders to ensure that our values and beliefs align; that our strict guidelines and standards are met; and that accountability is taken for actions. 

This statement is to inform our customers, stakeholders and supply chain members of our code of conduct to ensure that our business and supply chain align with our company culture on ethics, environment and our community.
