Katherine Hamnett cuts ties with Tesco
Katherine Hamnett has raised a few eyebrows by deciding to cut her ties with Tesco due to limited distribution and lack of in-store merchandising of her organic capsule range 'Choose Love'.
“I was initially excited about the tie-up because I thought we could increase demand for ethical products. I’ve come to the conclusion that Tesco simply wants to appear ethical, rather than make a full commitment to the range,” she told Drapers.
This is the latest knock for the supermarket chain which, along with George at Asda, Primark, Mothercare, Matalan, Gap and H&M, was recently embroiled in an investigation into poor pay conditions for workers in Bangladesh and India.
