It's an absolute priority for us to guarantee that the WakaWakas are made in safe working conditions and in an environmentally responsible manner. WakaWakas are produced in China at a factory which also produces for Philips, Panasonic, Hayer and many other international brands. They are under strict government control regarding environmental regulations and hardly produce any waste water. The factory would lose its export license if it used child labour. We regularly check the manufacturing locations ourselves.
