WHAT MAKES OUR TEXTILES DIFFERENT
The jobs created as a result of our textile production have helped over 250 women in Kolkata India to escape a life of poverty and forced prostitution, into a life of freedom and dignity.
Therefor, every purchase of MADE IN FREEDOM products contributes to offering women a future full of hope, and removes another brick in the wall of exploitation and trafficking. Together we can bring the injustice to a crumbling end.
Just like the planting and cultivation of organic vegetables, pesticides are not used in organic cotton fields. Natural fertilizers put less strain on the soil, and field workers do not come in to contact with chemicals… and neither does your skin when you wear our T-Shrits!
Our organic cotton is harvested by hand, supporting small farmers. Another advantage of the organic cotton plant is that it produces seeds that can be used for re-cultivation.
So, when you buy a Made in Freedom T-Shirt, you get a quality product that has helped to protect the health of the cotton farmers and the environment.
With the help of our partner in India, we produce T-Shirts from 100% organic cotton. By doing so, we want to consciously oppose widespread human exploitation in prostitution by tackling an economic problem with an economic solution. Out T-Shirts are sewn by women who have been freed from a future in forced prostitution and receive a new livelihood through dignified work.
Together with Freeset, our partner in India, more than 250 women have been offered a job with fair pay, well above the national minimum wage. With the purchase of our products, you help to enable a better a life in sustainable freedom and dignity!
