  • No, WRAP certification is not available to brands or stores. Individual production units are the only ones that can be.
  • Clothing and footwear supply chains are vast and complicated, making it difficult to label any of them as being created wholly in WRAP-certified facilities. While the final assembly of a garment may have occurred in a WRAP-certified facility, the cloth, buttons, or other components may have been manufactured in a non-WRAP-certified site. We do not have a system for identifying clothing and footwear created in our accredited facilities because WRAP is not a consumer-facing company. Several companies and retailers, on the other hand, have chosen to state whether they source from WRAP-certified facilities on their websites.
