Follett Parners with Alta Gracia

Alta Gracia is a new brand of apparel made in a factory that pays its workers a living wage, fully respects their associational rights and meets or exceeds all university labor standards. Villa Altagracia is a village in the Dominican Republic where Knights Apparel, one of the largest suppliers of collegiate licensed apparel to the mass market, has set up the factory. The Workers Rights Consortium (WRC), an independent monitoring organization for over 175 affiliated colleges and universities, will verify the entire production and fulfillment process.

In partnership with Knight's Apparel, Follett Higher Education Group will be offering this new line across 85 bookstore locations, anticipating further expansion as the capacity of Alta Gracia increases.
