OUR ARTISANS

According to an article released by Fashion Revolution in 2017, 98% of workers within the fashion industry are unable to meet basic needs, and 75% of these workers are women ages 18 to 21. This is prevalent in the Philippines where social injustice is rather customary amongst local artisans. It is common for the workers to be underpaid and overworked.

In our continued efforts to understand and strengthen social equity, we ensure that our local artisans are being paid above average wages in an effort to move towards collective social improvement. Above average wage is three to four times higher than the minimum wage. It is equivalent if not exceeding the income of corporate workers in the country. Aside from their wages, yearly bonuses, housing, health care, maternity, retirement benefits and disability insurances are also provided.  

Our artisans are inspired to believe in themselves and understand that they are not just seamstresses who work only for income. They are respected as artisans, who have mastered their craft and produce pieces of art. We have a core team of highly experienced artisans who have been working with our designer for almost 30 years, all of whom we consider family. We offer our artisans the flexibility of working from home or working at our factory here in Bacolod City. This business structure allows them to be with their families whilst also earning a living. To us, this is dignity and opportunity.
