Kickstarter Campaign

Ethically Handmade Fashion that Empowers Women

Help us Shake up the fashion Industry NOW by making a pledge towards our campaign.

The purpose of this Kickstarter is to allow us the opportunity to continue to empower the women we have worked with in Vietnam. Currently, we are only able to employ three women due to our lack of space, equipment and resources. As everything is handmade, the manufacturing process is longer than usual which means our team are working on our collections almost a year in advance. While our goal is of course to employ more seamstresses and purchase new equipment and facilities, our overall aim is so much more than that. The idea is to create a space and community that empowers and supports women through employment while giving them the opportunity to learn and develop new skills. This space will provide women with a safe space to work where they a valued while providing baby minding services, food on site and even English lessons.

As we truly want to shake up the fashion industry, we want to initiate change through mentorship. Our warehouse space will provide an option for brands seeking ethical and sustainable manufacturing. Supporting each other in our journey to make sustainable and ethical fashion the new norm is what is truly going to shake up the fashion industry.

Our mission is simple, support women by providing safe and fair working conditions + support the planet by creating conscious and sustainable manufacturing. Personally, I love working for a brand that not only loves creating beautiful limited-edition garments, but that truly values its entire team. Knowing each seamstress by name is unique in the fashion industry and is something we are truly proud of. This Kickstarter is the beginning of the next phase of TTK. We are continuing our promise of social responsibility and transparency in an industry which doesn’t always value it. We are putting into practice our ethos and ensuring our actions reflect what we are saying.
