My name is Richard Richemond. I have been working for DOT for eight months. This order was a great opportunity to learn a lot and improve my beading skills. I also used the income to pay my rent and support my family.

We carry out a Social Impact Report for every collection made in collaboration with the Ethical Fashion Initiative. 

Social workers are embedded in the communities in which we work, and closely monitor the implementation of our code of conduct. 

Extensive data is collected to carefully measure the impact of each order, to ensure that the work is positively impacting the lives of the artisans and that our projects are working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
