Welcome to the Partnership: Karl Rieker GmbH & Co. KG

We are pleased to welcome Karl Rieker GmbH & Co. KG to the Textiles Partnership.

Rieker has been active in Bodelshausen since 1954 as an international company in the design, purchasing, production and distribution of textiles/clothing/corporate fashion. It also offers consulting and e-commerce solutions in the fashion segment.

As a family run business, Rieker cultivates a fair, sustainable and future-oriented approach to suppliers, customers, employees and natural resources. The textile retailer has been offering sustainable and certified textiles for many years and is continuously expanding its range. Over time, the company has built up a sophisticated corporate responsibility (CR) system. Both in Germany and in the production countries, a team is responsible for implementing the CR requirements of the company and its customers. The textiles are certified several times, including by GOTS, Cotton made in Africa, Better Cotton Initiative, Responsible Down Standard, Global Recycled Standard, Organic Content Standard and OEKO-Tex.

Managing Director Monika Rieker describes the motivation for working in the Textiles Partnership as follows: "In addition to purchasing and selling sustainable clothing, we want to make an active contribution to the textile industry of tomorrow, in which the preservation of the environment and respectful treatment of all people along the supply chain is a matter of course. We can do this best by joining forces - together with our customers and employees. We bring our extensive know-how from the textile trade to the table, as we have known the challenges in the production countries for decades and also know how corporate responsibility can be implemented in Asia. We look forward to the exchange with the other members."
