Artisan Story:

Maggie’s one-of-a-kind Real Fair Trade pledge is their promise to treat people, materials, and products with care and love.

Maggie’s back story reads as follows “The super-soft fabrics of our Leggings and Apparel originates with organic cotton grown and harvested by a collective group of family farmers in the rainfed regions of Maharashtra, Odessa, and Andhra Pradesh in India. The group of farmers work together, supporting and running a non-profit collective. The collective works to improve socio-economic conditions for the farmers, provides farmer trainings, and runs test plots where they constantly experiment with new growing techniques. The challenges presented by the changing climate are always top of mind for all small-scale family farmers.  

Each year we pay a deposit to the collective which helps with up-front costs associated with the planting season. Responding to what farmers say they need, instead of purchasing what will look good in PR photos, is what we call real fair trade.

The final partner in this fully GOTS certified production chain is a 3rd generation family-owned mill in Kolkata, India where all workers are represented by one of three different trade unions. We work closely with the cut and sew team to maximize efficiency when developing our legging patterns, which helps us keep both prices and fabric waste low.”
