In 2007, we were introduced to an impressive workers’ co-operative in Honduras, a forward-thinking group that continually seeks opportunities to advance the growth of its own. Needless to say, they’ve been manufacturing our handcrafted shirting in their ninety year old factory ever since. Based in Tegucigalpa, the co-op holds to their core values which include, of course, membership, as well as unity, respect and safety. We have often said that their commitment to detail and quality produces the finest needlework we’ve seen outside of Italy. Taking great pride in their well-deserved reputation for exceptional work, part of their commitment also includes making conscious efforts to reduce their environmental impact and conserve natural resources.
We work hard to build partnerships that can empower our entire supply chain to equip you with the best products possible. Our partners in Honduras have said that they believe that “profits are a consequence” of the continued well-being of their co-op family. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
