indiCo Stamp of Approval

You can have confidence in how we source products because every supplier is “indiCo-Approved.” From comprehensive reviews to personally visiting factories, our Global Sourcing Team ensures that suppliers meet or exceed indiCo standards and requirements.

We consider multiple factors when verifying our international partner factories. We seek out manufacturers that are family-owned and operated, not state-operated, when possible. We want to find companies that understand our business and want to have a long-lasting relationship with us. We also follow the guidelines and code of conduct provided by the Fair Labor Association.

indiCo is registered with the Fair Labor Association as a Category C affiliate and is committed to upholding the FLA Workplace Code of Conduct in facilities producing its collegiate products. To learn more, visit www.fairlabor.org/affiliates/collegiate-licensees.

We Develop Relationships.

Unlike some suppliers, our team personally visits each of our partner manufacturers. We engage in this way because we are looking for long-term business relationships with companies we can rely on. These face-to-face meetings help us learn about their environment, facilities and products on a more personal level. We believe it’s time well spent for the stores we serve.

  • - Willingness to allow photographs and videos to be shared with our stores

ACHIEVING STANDARDS
indiCo expects all of its suppliers to comply with the applicable labor and environmental laws and regulations of the country where the merchandise is produced. We seek to utilize suppliers and factories who strive to achieve these standards and demonstrate a continuing commitment to the protection and improvement of workers’ rights, safety and the environment.
