Here's a bit about what they do:

Love Thread & Co. is a fashion label with a social footprint. They collaborate with creatives and designers to use fashion for good. All of their collaborative designs are limited-edition capsule collection, where they embrace sustainable materials and methods to deliver beautiful styles and high quality garments straight from the heart of Bali to your closet.

Their 'people for people' model extends their reach by allowing for a greater engagement with the creative and fashion industry, fostering collaboration for the ultimate purpose to educate, restore and empower women.

Their vision is to use fashion, and the creative industry as a whole, to combat social injustice for women at risk and survivors of modern slavery. They aim to provide a transparent process throughout their production and supply chain. Their initiative takes a holistic approach to highlighting their social responsibility and ensuring that their fashion consumption does not come at the cost of the exploitation of others. They are dedicated to creating and nurturing a new generation of conscious consumers and artisans in the fashion industry.

  They are running an event for fashion lovers which you can check out here by clicking on the image above.

As a social enterprise they exist to raise funds for Love Thread Project's mission to end the exploitation of women. They are committed to give 100% of the profits towards LTP's education, restoration and empowerment programs for women that have been abused, trafficked and trapped in modern slavery.

They believe that, by doing this, they are not only impacting them but also the wider community that they influence as agents of change.
