In our quest for social responsibility as a fashion brand, we have adopted an initiative with a purpose that goes beyond mere fashion. Inspired by our commitment to tackling environmental and social challenges, we have forged a meaningful partnership with Togean Naturale.
Togean Naturale has empowered women in villages across Indonesia. The company began by producing emission-free body care and wellness products with the women's community of Togean, Sulawesi. Today, Togean Naturale has also created other women's communities in Papua and Bali with various projects aimed at helping women in rural areas of Indonesia to improve their skills and life conditions.
This collaboration with Poupette St Barth, born of our fabric, revolves around the innovative reuse of discarded materials, with a particular focus on recycling fabric waste. At the heart of this collaboration lies a profound goal: not only to minimize our ecological footprint, but also to empower the women in our community. Through skills development initiatives, we are passing on new skills to these women, enabling them to produce and providing them with a means of cultivating additional sources of income.
This program goes beyond a commitment to sustainability. It's about making a real impact, not just on the environment, but on the lives of the women we aim to empower. Our efforts are straightforward: we're not just redefining fashion, we're weaving a narrative where style blends harmoniously with social and environmental responsibility.
