Proudly Made in India

Posted on August 07, 2018 by Katie Schmidt | 0 comments

Passion Lilie partners with producer groups throughout India in Bangalore, Jaipur, Tirupur, and Hyderabad. These highly skilled artisans work to produce our fabrics, apparel, totes, napkins, and more. Passion Lilie’s products are proudly made in India, and we’re happy to support our artisans each day with fair wages, safe working conditions, and the promise of long-term employment. We choose to make our fair trade products in India for many reasons, but here are just a few of our favorite reasons to support fair trade products made in India.

Passion Lilie products are made in India by highly skilled, fairly paid artisans, such as these.

Why We’re Proud Our Clothes Are Made in India

Our artisans are as central to our business as our mission, which includes empowering artisans around the world. These skillful workers create everything from the hand block prints on our cotton fabrics to the stitches in each article of clothing. Their hard work makes all of Passion Lilie’s products the high-quality, authentic, stylish pieces our customers love. We appreciate the work our artisans put into each product, and it’s one of many reasons we’re so proud to label our work, “Made in India.”

Hardworking Artisans

Hardworking artisans such as this are part of why Passion Lilie products are proudly made in India.

Passion Lilie’s artisans have proven themselves to be incredibly hardworking people. They want to better themselves and provide for their families. If you’ve been following our blog posts, you might remember Ammu. Ammu started going back to school while working for Passion Lilie after having to drop out at a young age due to health conditions. Or you might remember Padmini, the manager of our block printing unit. Padmini partnered with the State Government Women's Welfare Board in order to provide free training in block printing to underprivileged women. These artisans embody our mission of providing dignified employment opportunities across the world, and we are proud to work with them.

Preserving the Land

Passion Lilie might not be in the farming industry, but our sustainable and eco-friendly practices help preserve the area around us and reduce our overall carbon footprint. We use natural ingredients to make our products, avoiding any dangerous chemicals that would harm the environment or our artisans. India has experienced issues with GMO farming and failed harvests, as well as dangerous factory conditions and explosions. Too much land and too many people have suffered the consequences of bad business practices and unsafe conditions in India, and we’re happy to be a part of the shift away from these destructive business practices. Our sustainable business practices and ethical treatment of workers set a precedent for other companies to do the same and continually strive to do better.
