    Social

    - This shirt is made by People Tree’s partner Swallows, in Bangladeshi. The artisans working hours are from 9 am to 5 pm, including one hour for lunch. The workplace is safe and comfortable and managers respect the dignity and humanity of all producers.

    - People Tree have shown an extraordinary commitment to the people who make their clothes. For example they make 50% advance payments on orders to ensure farmers and producers have sufficient money throughout the year. This is unheard of in the fashion industry and is just one example of their commitment to the people making their clothes.  

     

    Environmental

    Hand looms are powered by the person operating them, not electricity. The production of fabric using a hand loom rather than a machine saves one tonne of CO2 per loom, per year.
