While I was assisting another designer, we went to Japan and India. In Tokyo, girls were wearing oversized linen dresses over ripped jeans with espadrilles. It was a very simple, but beautiful. I left Tokyo with the itch to start designing again. In India, the economic strife impacted me greatly. The juxtaposition of the two cities struck a strong chord. I quit my job and started Faircloth.EXPLAIN HOW EACH PRODUCT DOES GOOD.
In Nepal, students are required to wear uniforms, to neutralize caste discrimination. If a girl can’t afford a uniform, she can’t attend school. Through the sale of each Faircloth piece, we donate two uniforms to a girl in Nepal. Girls who receive an education are less vulnerable to HIV infection, human trafficking and other forms of exploitation.HOW DO YOU MEASURE THE IMPARCT OF YOUR PRODUCTS?
GWP, our partner in Nepal, will review the attendance of the girls who get school uniforms and monitor their performance records.IF YOUR PRODUCTS CREATE JOBS, TELL US WHAT'S UNIQUE ABOUT THOSE JOBS.
The uniforms will be made by tailors who are members of Microfinance Self-Help Groups supported by grants from GO Campaign.
