“I am single but take care of two siblings. I trained in tailoring and dress making before getting employment at the Ethical Fashion Artisans-EPZ. During the Stella McCartney order I worked as a stitcher of the bags. The order income contributed a lot in terms of my confidence levels since I was able to afford most of my basic needs. It also gave me an occupation, which is important for unmarried women like me.”

Pauline Omoloh, 27


“I am a widow and a mother of 2. I worked on Stella McCartney order as supervisor to a group of sewers. I used the income from the Stella McCartney order to meet our household needs and to pay rent throughout the period of the order.”

Dorcas Mutunga, 36

People first. Fair supply chain. Living wages. Dignified working conditions.

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.
