Racchi School via WORLD TEXTILE SOURCING
As noted, there are many ways the fashion industry defines and measures sustainability. We believe being an ethical clothing company encompasses more than just making sustainable dresses. Truly sustainable development means meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. We are proud that our manufacturing partner in Peru, World Textile Sourcing, shares this vision toward the future. One way that WTS invests in future generations of their extended community is their commitment to childhood education in Racchi.
Since 2014, WTS has been donating sewing machines to schools in Racchi. This donation helps parents, children and teachers make uniforms, aprons, and personal items for the community. In addition to the sewing machines, they provide fabric, thread, mask molds, elastics, and training. By teaching this skill not only are they increasing future income potential, but they are also creating a more engaged way of learning that fosters creativity. This program is designed to help the future generations in Racchi meet their own needs and preserve their way of life.
