Have you ever dug into how your clothes and accessories were made? We did. It’s the reason we started OWEN STITCH.
We call it ethical sourcing: a sustainable and conscious approach to material sourcing. It is a transparent and holistic connection between farmers, shepherds and factories. We're using a ground-up approach to develop the future of direct material sourcing.
Best known in the coffee & tea industries, direct trade is a way of sourcing raw ingredients straight from the farmers, without the use of traditional middlemen. Buying the raw material ourselves lets us do three things: provide our customers with fair prices that reflect the quality instead of the label, provide farmers with better prices and business practices (especially in comparison to fast fashion enterprises), provide transparency into how our partners conduct their business.
FAIR & EQUAL PAY
One of the most impactful ways to improve quality of life is by ensuring the employees of our partners are paid fairly, and equally. We are applying fair trade principles on the ground. In other words, we work directly with producers and cut out the middleman.
A process of sustainability that starts with curated material. We work directly with our partners to ensure the highest quality materials and continue to test for authenticity throughout our supply chain to guarantee this.
