Clothing & Home

We are restless in our aim to improve things for the better. We work closely with our suppliers to develop high quality and innovative products that are only available at M&S.

We operate rigorous quality management systems which have been developed with our suppliers. These operate on a precautionary principle and are supported by a range of on-site audits and product testing. Suppliers are required to meet a range of quality, safety, environmental and social standards. We also operate a system of public recalls when required.

We pride ourselves on developing innovative products. In any season, around 80% of our clothing, homeware and beauty products will be new.
