HOW SYNERGY'S APPLIQUÉS ARE EMPOWERING WOMEN IN NEPAL

471226_10100462607333058_1105158579_o   TAKING IT HOME: It is an unfortunate reality that mothers in Nepal are frequently forced to choose between caring for their families and earning a living wage. In order to free women from this predicament, the Appliqué Program allows them to take work home. We believe that women everywhere should be able to provide for their families while asserting their independence through meaningful work.   339072_10100462609134448_1726514658_o   IT'S ONLY FAIR: All of our garments are made in accordance with Fair Trade Practices. Our hand-stitchers are able to work at their own pace, and our garments are made from organic fibers and dyed with low impact dyes. Workers are never exposed to harmful chemicals or pesticides. Moreover, every single person employed by Synergy earns a living wage - along with the opportunity to secure brighter future for themselves and their families.   241914_10100462609174368_482613217_o   A FAMILY AFFAIR: Our eastern family is very dear to us, and we make annual visits to Nepal in order to maintain a close relationship with them. Synergy is involved and invested in the well-being of every single member of our community. Whether they are a stitcher in Nepal or a warehouse worker in Santa Cruz, they are - and always will be - treated with respect and appreciation.

THE JOURNEY OF A SYNERGY GARMENT

RADIATE   Synergy Organic Clothing takes its commitment to sustainability seriously. We strive to be mindful and conscious in every facet of our business. Each Synergy piece takes a journey around the world, positively affecting everyone involved. We are deeply grateful to each and every one of our customers who allow us to be a force for good around the world.   It all starts in a design studio in Santa Cruz, California, where Kate Fisher, Co-Owner and Art Director of Synergy, dreams up all of the designs. Kate looks to the world around in her approach to design. Synergy was created in the spirit of adventure and with the vision of being a synergy of both Eastern and Western design influences.     902130_10151556601184165_1545996715_o   We source our organic cotton from India. Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a lower impact on the environment than conventionally grown cotton. The cotton is grown without toxic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, and genetically modified seeds. All of our fabrics are also made with low-impact dyes. These dyes have a high absorption rate, which decreases the use of rinse water and produces less waste.   8867_10151699034489165_204980461_n   Then it's off to Nepal where our clothing is produced. We have a close and long standing relationship with our manufacturers in Nepal. Our appliqué designs are individually hand sewn by skilled crafts-women in Nepal. We adhere to employment guidelines set forth by fair labor organizations through advocating higher salaries and never employing child labor. The production of our appliqués empowers this group of 150 women with the ability to work from home, support their families with the living wage income earned and gives a sense of pride and independence.   SMILE   Then it's all back to where it started. Our warehouse in Santa Cruz is the distribution hub for the whole country. There, our crack team of Organic Clothing Experts pack and ship your orders with love and care. Wether you're buying Synergy online, at a festival or in a store, you can feel proud that you are supporting the livelihood of the worldwide community that is Synergy Organic Clothing.   1506681_10201562096586517_228510724_n
