The OneSuitWonder product range is produced in Ghana and Poland.
From the very beginning it was clear to us that we wanted to produce our rainwear in a socially responsible and ethical way.
This means we want to:
work with companies who treat their workers well,
have a personal relationship and work collaboratively with our small business partners,
where possible provide employment opportunities for disempowered groups, and
keep production as local as possible.
This has led us to partnerships with a sewing school in Western Ghana and a small family-owned company in Poland.
Western Girls Training Centre - Ghana
The Western Girls’ Training Centre (WGTC) was established to empower young women aged between 14 and 18 years by giving them education and training in manufacturing textiles, sewing work clothing and batik making.
Our partnership will provide the WGTC with contracted work, and enable the young women to learn new sewing skills, follow processes for production, develop business skills and to train and mentor other students.
The young women at the Western Girls' Training Centre will manufacture the rain trousers and carry bags and use the remnant material to make waterproof covers for smart phones, tablets and mp3 players. Our long term goal is to train the young women in Ghana to manufacture the all-in-one rain suit.
Manufacturing Company - Poland
Our company in Poland is a small family-owned business that has been operating for 50 years. It currently employs 100 women who sew cotton work shirts and embroidery. We found this company through a contact in the Netherlands who recommended them based on the quality of their work and the professional yet friendly approach.
