‘All our garments are made sustainably and ethically, either using organic fibres or our LAST_YARD™ Concept. We work to support and give back into communities we work in. Luxury should not be at the expense of others or at cost to the planet. Fashion should be about the creation of human value from weaver to wearer." – OSMAN YOUSEFZADA
Our giving back programme is extensively global. Some initiatives are already in progress, and some are focal points as we grow. As a business we are supporting charities and initiatives that can make a difference, empower, and give shelter and protection. We facilitate medical help to resource-limited individuals in Afghanistan and Pakistan; We support artisan communities, from weaving communities in Uzbekistan, wood-block printers in Pakistan and dyers in Rajasthan; and closer to home in the UK we will be supporting domestic violence safe spaces.
SKATE GIRLS OF KABUL
One of our first collaborations as a Foundation will be with Skate Girls of Kabul. The girls really inspire a sense of freedom and power, a symbol for their peers of working around cultural barriers and smashing traditional glass ceilings. We would like to help the girls secure university education or vocational training, to try to ensure they will always feel as free as when they skate.
