Ever wondered who makes your clothes? You may imagine a faceless person slaving over a sewing machine, perhaps in sweatshop conditions, and you might think about this for a second before feeling guilty, or clueless or both these feelings at once!
Our garments are made in Bali at a factory with about 70 employees. They all work a 6 day week which is normal in Bali. Everyone gets time off for various religious holidays and events. The owner of the factory is concerned with staff cohesion and he organises meals and even activities such as a staff picnics, white water rafting, and volley ball games. Other staff who have young children have the choice to work from home if they need to. Below is a pic of the staff enjoying a religious celebration at the factory.
We have taken the care to find makers for our clothes in a factory with a safe working environment and fair wages and conditions. We think that investing in the right people to cut and sew our garments is something worth seeking and aligns with yogic principles.
