Re: Alta Gracia Verification Report
At the following link, please find the WRC’s latest comprehensive verification report regarding the Altagracia Project factory in Villa Altagracia, Dominican Republic. This factory produces collegiate licensed apparel for Knights Apparel’s Alta Gracia Apparel brand.

As you know, Knights Apparel has committed to ensure that all Alta Gracia workers will receive a living wage and that workers’ freedom of association will be fully respected, in addition to fulfilling all requirements of Dominican labor law and university codes of conduct. The WRC engages in an ongoing comprehensive monitoring and verification process to ensure that all of these obligations are met. As is detailed in this report, the factory has fully complied with its commitments.

The culture of respect for workers’ rights at Altagracia continues to represent a model for the apparel industry. For additional information about the WRC’s work on this project, please visit:
