At Synergy, we have a large, interconnected web of team members, friends, and community, that drive our mission. From our warehouse in Santa Cruz, California, to our factories in Nepal and India, our Synergy family is part of a global community with purpose.
On a recent trip to find inspiration for our next collection, Synergy founder and head designer, Kate Fisher, met with 2 integral team members as she traveled across India to connect with new and existing manufacturers and factories.
Meet Suman Yadav, a 27-year old factory employee from Gorakhpur, an industrial city in north-eastern India, in Uttar Pradesh, near the border of Nepal.
Suman currently resides in Noida, India, close to New Delhi, and has been working at one of Synergy’s factories for the last 4 years. With a Bachelor of Arts in fashion design, she mainly works on our samples, a foundational part of the overall process in creating clothes. When she’s not working, her hobbies include reading and watching movies.
Suman is dedicated to caring for the planet, through the sustainable and ethical fashion practices of Synergy. As one of the people who oversees sample production, her favorite pieces of the fall collection include our athleisure bottoms like the Wanderer Pant and the Chakra Pant. They are great for layering under kurtahs/ tunics worn in India by women.
On her trip, Kate also met with Lovely Kumari, a budding seamstress who has been part of the team for the last 2 years. Originally from Bangalore, Lovely, is studying correspondence as part of her BA. As with most college students, her free time mostly consists of studying.

Happy Fair Trade Month! Although we celebrate and practice fair trade every day, we are uniting with the global marketplace to highlight the importance of ethical manufacturing and consumption during the month of October. Fair trade is a global movement made up of a diverse network of producers, companies, consumers, advocates, and organizations putting people and planet first.
