We wanted to create stylish, high-quality clothes while paying a fair and meaningful wage to the people who produce them. It’s a concept known as “fair trade” and it means we put people first. We handpicked the best, most ethical factories around the globe and presented them with a new concept: paying workers a fair wage, not just a minimum one. We designed beautiful, well-made clothing and accessories for women and men. And whether creating timeless cashmere sweaters or great-fitting tees, we made sure that the workers who cut every pattern and sew every seam are rewarded for their skill and hard work. Instead of driving costs down, we’re trying to lift people up.
