Eco and Fair is not our goal, it’s our starting line. We deliver Fair Trade and Organic certified t-shirts, produced by women who have been liberated from the sex-trade industry.
Up to now, the reality sadly looks like this:
10,000 Women have been lured into working the sex-trade in Kolkata, India alone.
Many young women have been trafficked from rural areas of India, Nepal and Bangladesh.
Without adequate employment, 80% return to the sex-trade after being freed.
At Made In Freedom, we want to take a stand against the prevailing industry of human exploitation that is the sex-trade by offering an economic solution to an economic problem. Through our partners in India, over 200 women have been freed and offered jobs paying well above the national wage. The purchase of our products help them to lead a better life in lasting freedom.
