Brand: Jyoti - Fair Works

Brand: Jyoti - Fair Works is a German-Indian brand that produces fairly and ecologically. The goal of Jyoti is to make clothing that not only makes their customers happy but also the workers and producers. This starts with raw cotton which is mainly GOTS certified, fair and organic. However, a small part of the weaving companies is not yet certified because they do not have access to certified cotton. 

Fair Trade: From seed to garment. Fairly and environmentally friendly the entire production takes place in India. The clothing is sewn together in a small sewing workshop in Chittapur by seamstresses who have a social disadvantage. The seamstresses who work there receive a fair wage and the opportunity for training, healthcare and to work around their children's school schedules.

Environmentally Friendly: Jyoti mainly uses GOTS certified, fair and organic cotton fabrics that come from various weaving companies. Jyoti puts a lot of effort into making sure that all these companies produce in a fairway and also visits the workplaces. However, not all can be certified, often because this is too expensive for them.

Good Cause: Jyoti partners with NGOs for emergencies such as climate-change-induced floods and the COVID-19 crisis. Jyoti e.V. offers labour rights, women’s rights, business development as well as literacy and English courses for the seamstresses.
