While doing my research on Her Velvet Vase, I discovered that they are not just any quick-fashion brands in Asia but they also vowed to treat their employees fairly while keeping products animal cruelty-free.
Her Velvet Vase's Fair Trade Practices:
"Her Velvet Vase believes in 100% cruelty-free practices. We do not use any animal or animal-tested products in our merchandise.
Although we are a 'fast-fashion' company, we ensure that all employees of Her Velvet Vase, suppliers and manufacturers alike are subject to fair and ethical working conditions. Our garment workers are paid fair salaries and receive benefits such as subsidised health care, full accommodation and meals. We integrate creative processes, manufacturing and distribution to ensure fairness, efficiency, as well as lower costs for our shoppers. That way, our workers and shoppers alike are happy!"
I highly respect fashion companies that value individuals and not only pay but treat their workers equally and ethically. Understanding that the fashion industry is a tough place to get into, it is important to find and identify work places that offer real opportunities and goals to achieve the brand's mission.
