We believe fair trade is the key to maintain sustainable life.
From the material suppliers, we get good quality materials at fair prices and we then take this to partner manufacturers with fair wages. We want fair traded, good quality clothes to be consumed and loved by our customers. For the sake of sustainable development in this world, Open Plan insists in fair trade ethics.
There are so many pretty materials in this world. New things are created everyday. However, there aren’t that many materials which care for the environment and us people. We trust in the materials that are harmless to us or our loved ones. We refuse the use of materials which endangers us and our fellow animals living in this planet together. We trust in the materials made without harming the environment. We are together with the partner companies which make beautiful, ethical materials.
We stand against the mass production, especially the mass production and consumption by the SPA brands. It is hard to imagine fair trade, considerate clothes for people and animals, and ethical consumptions from the system they are running. We think the manufacturing structure of SPA brands continuously creates the low wage problems in developing countries, destroys the environment and furthermore, destroys sustainable life for all of us.
We stand for local and small production. By participating in local production, we can protect the environment by decreasing CO2 emissions. We also work hard to make a healthy society by contributing to regional economic growth. Our partner sewing factories have experienced, talented technicians. They are the people who make good quality garments, who care for our children and our grandchildren's future well being. We respect their knowledge and experience. And we hope our customers will be with us.
