Ethical Fashion through asha garment factory
Updated: Jul 21, 2021
We all love fashion! We all love shopping and we love wearing the coolest and trendiest clothes.
But have you ever stopped to think about how are these garments impacting the environment and the society we live in?
The truth is the fashion industry is one of the biggest contributors to human trafficking and environmental pollution.
In the quest of keeping up with fast fashion and increasing profit margins, most garment factories end up exploiting their labor. Extremely poor working conditions, excessive working hours, below average pay, child labor is the sad truth of our fashion industry.
At Asha Garment factory we believe in ethical clothing and fair trade clothing. We believe in using fashion to doing good. Doing good not only for the employees who create our products for you, but also doing good to the community we live in. We believe in transforming lives with every product that is made at Asha Garment factory
