Meet the Makers
MEET THE MAKERSSOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
We believe that each human deserves to be treated with respect and dignity, regardless of their (ethnic) background, education, political preference, age, or gender. The GOTS certificate helps us ensure a proper working environment for every individual at each step of the chain, so they are all treated with respect, a fair wage, and decent working hours. And obviously no forced or child labour.
We carefully select family-owned factories: people we know and have met, who share our vision on the future of fashion, and know how to take care of others.
No subtlety about our transparency here, as we are very proud to show the excellent partners we work with:
Seamstress at Soeiro
She has an eye for detail and is proud to work at Soeiro. Together with her seamstress colleagues, she makes sure everything is meticulously well put together. All in accordance with our high quality standards.
Pattern Maker at Soeiro
She knows how to create comfortable clothing. We have been working closely with Manuela and her team to make sure we have the right fit for all of our long-lasting pieces.
