THERE ARE TOO MANY SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL  ISSUES ASSOCIATED WITH THE MODERN FASHION INDUSTRY.
Exploitation unfair wages, poor working conditions, pollution and waste are just a few of them.

We define an ethical fashion business as one that pays its workers a living-wage, minimizes environmental footprint, preserves local craftsmanship, encourages local leadership, and contributes to the growth of local economy.  We empower people to break the poverty cycle and build a dignified life for themselves, their families, and their communities

Living wage


We pay an average of 184% of  local minimum wage, plus daily production bonuses.  Financial security, and improved quality of life are reported by our entire team,  including food security, ability to send their kids to school, medical needs, etc.  Ensuring a happy, healthy workforce standardizes our responsibility in caring for needs outside of the workplace.

Local craftmanship


We employ local  techniques and design, and combine them with international fashion trends and standards.  As a result, we have a product line that is as authentic as the two hands that craft them. To learn more about your purchase’s impact click here.

Local leadership


Three of our Haitian managers are financial shareholders. That provides a sense of ownership, encouraging  high levels of work ethic, instilling pride, and aiding in the development of  a Haitian middle class.

Environmental footprint


There is a finite amount of non-renewable resources in the world.  We aim to protect people and the planet through the prevention of improper disposal of tires and rubber in Haiti. To learn more about your purchase’s impact click here.
