LIZ ALIG was built on the idea of producing clothing ethically, as a way to empower those living in places around the world who typically have few opportunities. They partner with small workshops around the world to produce their collections.
They each have an emphasis on a hands on, slower way of production (where one person sews an entire garment from start to finish). Each group sources handwoven, natural or recycled textiles that are native to their region or are easily accessible in their local markets.
Ethics in the sewing process is so important to Liz Alig, but it is equally important for them to source textiles that were created fairly and mindfully because of this 100% of the textiles they use are one of the three: handwoven, natural, or recycled.
Many rural villages have a rich history of traditional textile production. Designing collections with these textiles not only gives Liz Alig the opportunity to give more women meaningful work, but it helps preserve some of these techniques that are being forgotten as most fabric production is shifting to mass production in large factories.
