The t-shirts are manufactured ethically by Dorsu, a social enterprise and garment manufacturing workshop located in Kampot, Cambodia. People in this country are already feeling the impacts of climate change, with rice farmers struggling with unpredictable weather patterns. Employees at Dorsu are paid a living wage and enjoy employment benefits such as maternity leave and healthcare.
The fabric is sourced from factory offcuts from the Cambodian garment industry. In Cambodia there are over 1500 factories producing clothing for many of the high street brands here in Australia and internationally. Often factories are left with extra fabric that they do not need and this is sent to warehouses across Phnom Penh, the country's capital. Using factory offcuts utilises what is already in existence, saving on resources required for manufacturing new materials.
