ETHICALLY MADE * FAIR WAGES
Alchemy is sweatshop-free! Trish pays more than fair "living wages" to her pattern masters, cutting masters, production supervisors, tailors and finishers. It takes hard work and dedication to make a quality product like Alchemy, and we respect the exceptional work of our staff in India. We guarantee that all our workers are have regular hours, breaks and holidays, and that they work in well-lit, healthy environments.
FLYING HEART ORGANIC CLOTHING
Trish's new collection Flying Heart is G.O.T.S. (Global Organic Textile Standard) Certified. It is inspected annually and is certified organic from the farm to the factory. We use only environmentally friendly dyes and softeners. This G.O.T.S inspection also insists on a high level of fair labour standards.
