Our Value Chain
Our Manufacturing Ethos:
Margo Paige doesn’t just consider the sustainability and livability of our products, but also the sustainability and livability of our supply chain. We strive to build supply chain partners that prioritize environmental impact and eco-friendliness, while promoting high ethical standards in their workplace. We selectively work with suppliers that share this ethos, and are grateful for the partnership of those that help bring Margo Paige products to life.
We also ensure our supply chain partners are experts in our product categories, so that the quality and performance of our products are top of mind along the way.
