The Intersection Clothing is here!!!!
We are HUGE supporters of fair and ethical labour. HUGE supporters of slow fashion. We want to throw our hats in the ring with creating ethically made clothing staples.
Celebrate with us with our first piece that we are launching.
These ethically made black crew sweaters are made from Organic French Terry. Available in sizes XS-2XL.
This cooperative focuses on women’s empowerment and poverty alleviation by providing women in India with fair-trade work.
In an effort to make a positive impact on our planet, over 95% of the fabrics they source have an environmental qualifier— meaning that they are either recycled, upcycled, or organic.
Here is some more about the business that we have partnered with.
SWEATSHOP FREE LABOR
Our employees are paid fairly and regularly and given the opportunity to earn raises + promotions. Unfortunately, this is not the norm in India, where garment workers typically receive low pay, have little opportunity for advancement, and are primarily female in a country that has one of the highest wage gaps between men and women in the world.
As part of our mission to alleviate poverty and empower women, we offer a paid training program; the only entry prerequisite is demonstrated economic need. Because many of the women who work with us never finished school, WORK+SHELTER’s job training in sewing and production management provides them with the means to find dignified work they otherwise wouldn’t have access to.
Our employees enjoy a clean, safe environment and take delicious chai breaks twice daily. WORK+SHELTER provides regular wellness check ups and dental screenings for all of our employees. We encourage our employees and trainees to pursue health, prosperity, and their dreams.
We’re creating a new workforce of empowered women by building on our leadership team’s diverse backgrounds in technology, manufacturing, design, finance, and operations. These women are independent, constantly learning, digitally adept, and financially savvy.
These crews are BEAUTIFUL!
