Tailors at Creative Handicrafts produce a gorgeous range of cotton garments for People Tree. The focus of Creative Handicrafts is not the women alone but their families too - especially their children. This is reflected in the various projects undertaken.

People Tree is a true pioneer in sustainable and fair fashion. They started in 1991 and since then, their mission has remained unchanged: to create products that meet the highest ethical values and environmental standards from start to finish.
Fair trade: People Tree is the first clothing brand that was allowed to put the WFTO (World Fair Trade Organisation) certification on their clothing. This certification guarantees good working conditions and fair wages. In addition to the certification, People Tree is also very transparent about their production. All suppliers are listed on their website, often with photos and videos, so you can really see who made the clothes or materials. People Tree mainly produces in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal, where fair working conditions have a major impact on the lives of employees.
Environmentally friendly: People Tree uses sustainable materials as much as possible, such as GOTS certified organic cotton, organic wool (mulesing-free), and Tencel.
