Ethical and Fairtrade clothes

"Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices, Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives." Fair Trade Association Australia and New Zealand

What has this to do with The Tailor's Apprentice? Well, the rag trade is notorious for not paying its workers award wages or providing safe, clean and healthy working conditions.

I do not want to travel that path.

This is why clothing made for The Tailor's Apprentice is made by local dress makers who earn a decent wage and have good working conditions.

Yes, our gowns aren't cheap, but they are made from quality materials and the worker who has created your beautiful gown has been well compensed for their skills, this means that you can wear your gown with pride.
