Among some of the hot buzz words in the fashion industry, today, is sustainable and how we can make things that are not only good in quality but good for our environment. Another important factor in being a player today in the Fashion Industry is also how much can your company give back and what are you doing to help your local community. Well, I am happy to say Fuchsia, a shoe company, out of Seattle is doing just that. Here is some more information from their website:
Fuchsia is direct to the consumer fashion brand of artisanal products. We sell luxury fashion accessories in a highly transparent way. Our first product is women’s flat shoes. Consumers pay for the products that are otherwise inaccessible and made with premium quality raw material. For every product, the company discloses a complete journey beginning from acquiring the raw material until it gets to the customer’s hand.
Fuchsia shoes are made in Sangla Hill, a remote town in Pakistan with a history stretching back to the time of Alexander the Great. Here, each pair of flats is handcrafted in a traditional workshop by a group of artisans who are passionate about using their skills to support their families and community. By making shoes for Fuchsia, they not only get to do what they love, they also receive a respectable living income which provides them and their loved ones with food, shelter, education, and health care.
Fuchsia is committed to treating these artisans with respect and dignity, supporting them as they continue a centuries-old tradition of time-honed craftsmanship. Not only does this result in a sustainable, environmentally responsible manufacturing process, it also means our customers can enjoy unique, handmade products which would otherwise be inaccessible.
