Switcher is a worldwide pioneer when it comes to transparency in manufacturing of its textiles and accessories and goes further than other brands. Since 2006, all of our products are tagged with the label Respect Code that allows full traceability of our products from raw material to distribution in Switzerland. All our partners involved in the manufacturing process, as well as the certificates of producers and raw materials can be traced back. The Respect Code provides consumers with the necessary information to act in an ethically correct, respectful as well as socially and environmentally responsible way.
