Kindred and Flourish will be collaborating in their upcoming ‘Sew & Skill’ programme for survivors of human trafficking in Northern Ireland.
During the last few months Kindred and Flourish have been working on fabric selection and design and we are excited to share the first look at our collaborative product which will launch in early 2019. One of our goals for the Sew & Skill programme is to be in a position to provide employment in and around the production of orders for this product.
This collaboration is pioneering a new way of thinking in Northern Ireland for change, hope and empowerment for those who have experienced the trauma of exploitation first hand. Contrary to labour practices that take place in the current fast-fashion industry, this collaboration celebrates craftsmanship, the value of the maker behind each product and transparency within supply chains.
We invite you to join with Kindred and Flourish as we move in this direction together.
