You will feel the benefits
Clothes produced by workers treated fairly means high-quality and unique handmade fashion details in garments. This is because they are crafted by people who care about the quality of their skilled work. You will feel the benefits and so do the hard working people who made your clothes.
Fair Trade is not charity
Fair Trade is paying a fair wage for masterful, valuable work while providing the necessary assistance to help make the worker more successful in the international marketplace. Indigenous partners directly with organizations to provide training, educational materials, financing and equipment that otherwise could not be afforded. As we continue to grow, Indigenous will endeavor to connect the company's long-term financial performance to that of the individual artisans, international sales team and California-based operations team without sacrificing the environment.
The heart of our company
Indigenous is a pioneer and leader in ethical and eco-friendly fashion, operating a fair trade production model that is one of the most stable, equitable and profitable foreign trade models in existence. We are confident that for every Indigenous garment purchased more money is going to directly support artisans than any other apparel company on the planet. Over a decade ago, Indigenous was founded on the rich culture and knitting traditions of native artisans in South America. Learn more about the Artisans that produce Indigenous garments.
