AFTER RAIN COMES SUNSHINE
Spring 2021 - #allaboutteamplay
“Welfare Society” is the name of the workers’ welfare that was founded for the employees of our Pakistani partner manufacture Talon in Sialkot. It works according to Fairtrade principles and ensures that workers also benefit from fair trade. For example, one dollar goes to the community as a bonus for every pair of shoes sold. An elected body decides democratically for which health and education projects the money will be used. From Sialkot, the sneakers go to the ship, to our warehouse and finally to your favorite shop – or directly to your home via the webshop.
What hardly anyone has on their list: A sneaker like this consists of 100 to 200 individual components. The colors for the screen printing or the eyelets for the laces: a long list that is constantly being put to the test. Does the small part meet our requirements? Every component that can be replaced by a more sustainable one is replaced. It’s an ongoing process that never ends.
