The first step marlies|dekkers took to become more transparent is by signing the The Transparancy Pledge in 2019. This Pledge helps apparel and footwear companies’ demonstrate commitment towards greater transparency in their manufacturing supply chain. By making a company’s supply chain transparent, it helps the company to collaborate with society in identifying, assessing, and avoiding actual or potential adverse human rights impacts.
In the same year marlies|dekkers signed up for The Open Apparel Registry, a neutral and publicly accessible database of every facility in the global apparel and footwear sector, for the purposes of enabling industry collaboration and improved identification of factories.
Besides signing up for these initiatives, we openly share our plans, progress and vendor base online on our website and are we continuously working on our supply chain transparency.

I met up with the American style maven in New York where we discovered we have a lot in common. Ruthie: “Fashion can be a tough game! I’m proud to still be standing… in my six-inch heels!”
