IPHD is the NGO linked to Saheli women – engages in the development such as girls´ education, human rights, feminism, health and livelihood. They stand for a sustainable and equitable India free from poverty.
The women are the primary focus on the program and they get provided by fair wages, health insurance coverage and a safe work environment.
The results from overproduction is that there is a huge amount of leftovers all over the world. Instead of keeping producing, why not using what already exist and trying to create new special pieces? We throw away tons of clothes each year, – without the clothes ever having been worn! Natural resources are wasted, not to mention the huge environmental impact.
Our goal is to minimize waste, which is why we buy jackets from different Vintage or Second-Hand markets. After a careful quality selection and washing process we start to work on every piece individually.
We buy all the applied fabrics and accessories from stock or we collect them from divers travels all over the world.
That makes our jackets too unique and special pieces.
