Right now the fashion industry is in crisis with major retailers being asked to pay for their cancelled apparel orders, many of which were made overseas by underpaid workers.
Here in Los Angeles, the majority of clothing is made by BIPOC (primarily indigenous North and Central Americans from Mexico and Guatemala). Unfair conditions and wages exist even here in the USA.
That's why our priority is manufacturing our clothing in-house in our own factory. Our workers are paid fairly - not by the piece, (which encourages an unsustainable pace to try to earn decent wages). Everyone is treated with kindness and dignity.
As we celebrate and re-evaluate what Freedom means, it's important to remember that we can all uplift others and use our dollars to vote for what is right.
There is no sustainability without human rights.
