When we were looking for our production, we wanted to make sure that the production facilities are supporting the local population and that there is a proper value creation already at that stage. We wanted to guarantee that the production facilities and their workers are well-compensated and the workers are living close to the production site. We found a small manufacterer that used to produce cashmere products but were at the very early beginning. Together with the owner & a labourers committee we started to produce, always having the highest production quality in mind. We agreed on market-decorrelated prices in order to give them the chance to build a sustainable business. After 9 years, we have achieved that now 60 people have a regular income. We are consistently working with the owner & the labourers committee to grow the local production with having the environment (sewage pipes) as well as labour conditions (creating year round jobs, secured social insurance, resting rooms within the production facilities) in mind.
