GAMETEE IS AN ETHICAL, SUSTAINABLE AND ECOLOGICALLY SOUND BUSINESS. OUR COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT AND TO OTHERS INCLUDES:
Gametee uses garments that are certified by WRAP - Worldwide Responsible Apparel Production - to create our range of videogame clothing. WRAP requires that all production is made under lawful, humane and ethical conditions with all due adherence to environmentally conscious production methods. Regular independent monitoring by acknowledged testing authorities ensures that standards are maintained throughout the production process.
We are committed to clean, responsible production and manufacture. This includes using exclusively non-toxic production methods, including water based dyes, vegetable based inks, and use of natural and sustainable materials.
Our supply chain is made up of hundreds of fairly paid individuals and a purchase from Gametee directly supports not only our independent business, but a further network of carefully selected suppliers and craftspeople. Wherever possible, we utilise hand-crafted production techniques, including hand-silk screening every gaming garment to ensure quality and individually tailored luxury.
We offer proper financial support and accreditation for our videogame artists, partners, and our workforce.
All deliveries we receive are carbon neutral. We exclusively use fully biodegradable packaging.
We recycle all suitable waste to minimise our environmental impact.
Right to Refuse Service
We retain the right to refuse service in instances of attempted fraud or where a high risk of fraud is detected. We have a zero tolerance policy towards abuse of our staff; instances of abuse may result in a permanent refusal of service.
Personalised or Signed Goods
We do not offer refunds on Personalised or artist-signed goods, unless these goods are demonstrably faulty.
Gametee has a commitment to ensuring that leather goods - such as our gaming wallet - come exclusively from 100% ethically responsible sources. Our leather products are created from high quality recycled leather remnants which contributes to minimising waste - no animal is ever sacrificed for a Gametee product. All Gametee leather is tanned using non-toxic vegetable dyes and engraved or embossed in a clean, precise, and ecologically sustainable process. It is very important to us that you love your Gametee videogame-inspired wallet or other product. Leather is durable and robust, and can last a life time if correctly cared for.
Leather is a natural material and is subject to change over time. Consistency and depth of colour may change with daily use. This change is inherent to the natural beauty of leather and should not be considered a fault. Whilst occasional exposure to water and rain is not a problem, leather is not waterproof.
