"TRADE versus AID" is no longer a viable argument about what is the best solution

WE EMPLOY BOTH THE GENEROSITY OF PHILANTHROPIC FUNDINGS AND THE POWER OF MARKETS TO FIND SOLUTIONS FOR ECONOMIC JUSTICE & FAIR MARKET SHARE.  

Workers' rights is not the only issue; economic justice and human dignity must be part of the conversation of fashion about fashion.  Our method is to democratize the market by funding artisans with equipment so they have a choice to work in a factory or be their own entrepreneurs;  secondly by leading the design front, we ensure a greater chance for the artisans' success. 

 

 

 

1ST:
WE INCUBATE 

We provide new equipments to artisans increasing quality & quantity

We  build capacity for  material acquisition& resources 

We  help develop  human resources, train artisans  in value-added production to ensure villages are better equipped for self sufficiency

3RD - WE  CONNECT MARKETS
via marketing & PR efforts and help to set obtain higher margins for artisans & marginalized producers

 
 

2ND: WE ACCELERATE

We involve foreign designers to help with product designs & aesthetic assessment

We assist with branding & marketing so that demands can be better managed and forecasted

We create the road map to connect and serve markets beyond current locales


 

Supply Chain Methodology encompasses 5 main pillars:

DESIGN, PLAN, EXECUTION, CONTROL, & MONITORING

While artisans show adequate performance in executing orders; they lack resources to manage their full supply chain leaving them unable to compete and at risk of constant price suppression
