A WORD FROM THE CEO
The high-quality craftsmanship that goes into each Mark Cross piece is essential in supporting a slow fashion cycle. We’ve coined the term ‘future vintage’ as a way to describe our pieces – knowing that they’ve been made to last lifetimes and retain value over generations.
ULRIK GARDE DUE
Mark Cross is selective in its approach to who they work with. They implement a strong Code of Conduct across environmental and social compliance for their suppliers to adhere to. Also, they work with suppliers who hold certifications for their quality and environmental management.
A CIRCULAR APPROACH
As a celebration of their timeless pieces, Mark Cross offers ‘All Vintage’ which is a selection of one-of-a-kind pieces from the late 1800s – 1990s. By embedding this take-back scheme into their business Mark Cross are closing the loop on their product cycle.
FAIR LABOUR AND RECYCLING
Mark Cross is committed to equal employment opportunities and ethical performance is an integral part of the company values. For their packaging, Mark Cross ensure that it is 100% recyclable and sourced from responsible suppliers that use FSC certified paper.
