Your collars and cuffs are in good hands
Having nailed the design and set exacting standards for how each shirt should be made, I started my search for the individuals who could create each cuff and collar. For me this needed to be more handicraft than heavy industry, and I was fortunate enough to meet a like-minded lady called Keren Long who heads up company called Ethical Apparel Africa.
Keren knows the rag trade inside out. For years, she ran Marks and Spencer and George supply chains overseas, and is now dedicating her career to establishing ethically run factories in Sub Saharan Africa and India.
This is exactly what I was looking for. A partner who can provide not only great quality shirts but also guarantees such things as good wages, union membership, social security, subsidised housing and holidays with full pay to the folks who make them.
They're happy with that. I am. And I hope you are, too.
