The founders of Yahmo wanted to create a brand that is always one step ahead of fashion. Fashion that connects people and the values of our planet. Yahmo means individual style with a good conscience.
Fair Trade: Each piece of clothing is made by passionate tailors who work at fair hours in a safe environment for a fair wage. Yahmo works closely with a family of tailors in Mumbai whom they met on one of their travels. The coats are currently made by five tailors and two helpers who are all family members or friends. They are between 20 and 40 years old and all earn above-average wages from which they cover their needs and support their families. They work a maximum of 8 hours a day, with a break of 45 minutes, and they have a safe and comfortable working place.
Environmentally Friendly: Yahmo's upcycled collection is made from upcycled silk sari's, that would otherwise have been thrown away. This beautiful fabric (70% silk, 30% polyester) is transformed into a beautiful new collection and given a second life. The other materials Yahmo uses are OEKOTEX certified Cupro, Tencel, and GOTS certified organic cotton. In addition, Yahmo only uses recycled cardboard and grass paper for shipping, never plastic.
Good Cause: The earth is important to Yahmo, so they work together with Eden Projects to make the world a greener and more beautiful place. For every order shipped they plant one tree.
