OUR PARTNERS MUST BE:

Ethical

Our first priority is to ensure that the factories that produce our quality timeless fashion pieces pay a fair wage and have fair treatment of their workers by focusing on their quality of life, fulfillment, and a balance in their daily lives. We interview each factory owner and discuss with their workers to find out what the culture is like working there and why they work here instead of other factories.

SUSTAINABLE

Our 2nd more important criteria is to find out how they think about sustainability in their production process, fabric waste, water usage, electricity and what environmental practices they have in place to ensure that they are focused on creating a green lifecycle for everything they produce.

LUXURY QUALITY

Our most important criteria is the luxury quality of the fashion piece they produce. Our partner factories have artisans that have mastered the art of producing quality pieces that last a lifetime for recognized premium fashion brands. We want to bring you luxury quality and master craftsmanship without the high markups so that you can enjoy timeless pieces every single day.

ACCOUNTABLE

Last but not least one of our most important factors is how we and our partner factories are responsible for our entire produce process and that we are accountable for being ethical & sustainable in the production of luxury quality pieces that change the lives of women & girls around the world.

OUR FACTORIES

HOW WE MET

We discovered Changes Apparel through Kendor, our sustainable fabric supplier. We asked them to introduce us to who they thought would be the best garment producer that fits our sustainable guidelines and practices and they told us to connect with Helen from Changes Apparel.

WHY WE WORK TOGETHER

Ever since we stepped foot into the Changes Apparel factory everything just felt right. The place is brightly lit and clean as any fabric place could be and the garment sewers were working away on their sewing machines and when it came time for lunch the place was filled with conversation. They've been in the industry for over 20 years and we are looking forward to a long-term partnership.

THE OWNER

Ever since we started talking with Helen we knew we were going to get along. She was extremely direct and transparent about how, who, and why she does what she does. She was also very willing to educate us about best sustainability practices when it comes to creating apparel and we knew it would be a great fit when she told us that she takes her leftover fabric to create pieces and then donate the pieces to the homeless.

TREATING THE WOMEN THAT CREATE OUR PIECES RIGHT.

From our partner factory artisan team to our internal team that grows the Divinius global impact we focus on fair treatment of workers and fair wages with an emphasis on building a culture of empowerment and impacting women around the world starting from the team that creates everything.
