 “I am 45 year old widowed mother of 5. All my children depend on me to provide food, shelter, clothes education and other essential needs. We received the Yestadt order from DOT which gave us hope for continued work. I used my income to pay rent and to save for future use.”

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.
