"WE TOO HAVE A HEART THAT BEATS, THAT SUFFERS WHEN FACING SO MUCH MISERY. THE PAIN OF THE WORKING MASSES AFFECTS US TOO. WHO KNOW MISERY MORE THAN WOMEN?"
The garment industry is one of the most exploitive industries in the world. Textile workers, which are mostly women and children, have to endure inhumane sweatshop conditions, low wages and long working hours.
We work directly with worker cooperatives and unions to support their fight and their production model against exploitive international corporations that are searching every part of the world to find cheaper labour. Worker cooperatives are owned and managed by workers. Decisions are made collectively and profit is distributed accordingly.
International textile corporations also exploit the environment and culture, especially in countries where people have no power to demand a better system. Overusing natural resources, destroying the soil and water sources with chemicals, stealing cultural motifs and other designers' work are what keeps the industry growing.
Depending on your needs, our production process starts anywhere from concept development to actual production of the garments. We facilitate the process until all the products are delivered to you as agreed. Our production process consists of three stages:
· Pre-Production: The first phase is all about developing the collection and making it production-ready. Depending on what stage you are at with the development of your collection, we can help you with concept development, collection design, technical drawings and rapid prototyping.
· Production: We communicate the production files with the cooperatives and factories in our supply network that best meet the needs of your collection. After receiving the first samples and making adjustments based on your feedback, we move on to the actual production. We collaborate closely with the chosen factories and facilitate the whole process to make sure the final garments meet your expectations. Finished products will be prepared for pick up from the factory or delivered to a location of your choice.
· Post-Production: We also provide services such as inventory, etc.
