The Fabric Social is a clothing brand that works with women facing insecurity in Asia’s forgotten corners. Their core social goal is to lift the burden of poverty from women and their families in insecure geographical areas. By becoming more economically independent, women in these communities are able to participate more freely in political life and represent their interests in the community. The clothing and accessories are made at a fair price in safe labor conditions by women living in these insecure locations. Not many brands can say that they reinvest 5% of their profits back into community-led initiatives, but The Fabric Social does.
The Fabric Social is fashion without borders.
“We work with women in geographically insecure locations of Asia, deliberately working with communities that are considered too political, and high risk investments. Our producers are forging a new wave of economic independence not dependent on charity.”
TFS values style over trend, creating collections that are made to wear, to love and that
come with a traceable supply chain that benefits the lives of producers. When
feminism and resistance has never been more in vogue – TFS was founded on walking
the walk, and we invite our customers to peer behind the label and to literally wear
their feminism on their sleeve.
“Currently we work with silk weavers in Assam, India, who live in an ex-rebel stronghold
of the underground liberation army. We are training tailors in Mizoram, India, who live
in an area that was bombed by the Indian government to quash an independence
movement. We work with weavers and tailors in Kannma, Myanmar, who live in the
“Dryzone”, an area that has been severely affected by climate change.”
“Our producers across these areas work in women-led cooperatives. We work only with
producers who are devoted to the same ethics as we are – fair wages, transparency,
safe working conditions and sustainability.”
The clothing and accessories are made at a fair price in safe labor conditions with
partners who share their mission to support women. They reinvest 5% of the profits back
into community-led initiatives.
