On 24 April 2013, 1133 people were killed and over 2500 were injured when the Rana Plaza factory complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Social and environmental catastrophes in our fashion supply chains continue. Fashion Revolution says enough is enough.
Since its inception, Vita Talie has been dedicated to ethical fashion. We believe in fair wages and good quality working conditions for apparel and accessory producers. We encourage all consumers to ask the important question, "Who made my clothes?" We are constantly brainstorming about how to make our supply chain ethical and environmentally friendly. Today, we stand as an active brand in this movement to help change the face of fashion by supporting the human rights of the lives that make our dreams and clothes a reality. We would like to introduce you to the people that make our extraordinary bags and belts.
Ibrahim is an artisan in Accra, Ghana. Ibrahim and his brother produce our wonderfully crafted bags. We met Ibrahim through our taxi driver in Accra. He told us about his excellent craftsmanship and once we had him produce several samples we knew we had to work with him.
Martha is an artisan at the popular Makola Market in Accra, Ghana. Martha produces our popular peplum belts. We randomly met Martha as we were walking through the market. We asked several people for a talented seamstress and they pointed us to her. She and her husband make gorgeous clothes and accessories.
These are the faces of the people that make Vita Talie bags and belts a reality. We are thankful to them for their hard work and dedication in making our bags and belts exquisite. It is truly important to support brands that not only believe in but practice ethical fashion. Join the revolution and support the human rights and artistry of the people that make your clothes and accessories by supporting brands that believe in art and a better quality of life for workers around the world. #FASHREV #whomademyclothes
