MAke fashion fair
We became brutally aware of the problems in the fast fashion world in 2013 with the collapse of Rana Plaza in Bangladesh. In one day, 1,134 lives were lost and over 2500 people were injured. Why?
Our desire in the West for lots of clothing at very cheap prices comes with a very real and very large environmental cost but that pales in comparison to the social cost needed to produce these garments.
As of 2016, there were an estimated 40 million modern slaves, with fashion being called one of the largest contributors. There are also an estimated 170 million child laborers, many of whom also work in the fashion industry.
That is why we do our best to only work with fair labor suppliers and manufacturers of our goods. Our goal is to work directly with small operations to ensure the fairest labor standards. Each product we produce we will tell you exactly what suppliers we use and you can visit their site or get in touch with them. Don't just take our word for it, check them out.
If you think we could be doing more, let us know. For now we are doing the best we can with the resources we have but are committed to only working with fair suppliers.
It is quite literally the least we could do for our fellow human.
