Journeying to faraway places inspired this founder to start a social enterprise to fund small social businesses made by people looking for respectable work
To bring ethical and beautifully handcrafted accessories to a global market, whilst ensuring the artisans who create them are empowered to earn a dignified and sustainable income.
We believe we all have the power to influence social change. For us that means fashion that has been created consciously. Women make up the majority of the workforce in the textile industries of developing nations, facing huge challenges such as gender, caste and social inequality.
We work exclusively with innovative NGO's, social enterprises and social brands who have a strong sense of integrity and transparency in their fair-trade practices, women’s empowerment programmes and environmental impact. Each product in our fashion collections empowers artisans (the majority of who are female) to either a sustainable wage or in some cases more double the minimum wage. Our homeware is handcrafted by a mix of male and female pit loom weavers. Each purchase enables vaccinations to be bought and distributed, gender empowerment programmes and education for the families of weavers.
