TAMGA Designs: A New Era in Sustainable Fashion

CA$ 26,062

210

 

TAMGA Designs creates globally inspired and responsibly produced fashion for the modern wanderer. Our unique prints take you on a journey to places far off the beaten path, where design, beauty and inspiration co-exist.

 

TAMGA started with a big idea: that fashion production, amidst all the bad news about sweatshops and exploitation, has a bright future. We believe in being accountable to all who help us create, in constantly improving our clothing and lessening our environmental impact. Oh, and having a kick-ass time while doing it.

   

 

 

 

 

 

TAMGA products travel nearly as much as we do! Check out the journey of our clothing, from fibre to fashion.

PT. Indorama Industries is based in Purwakarta, and is a secondary supplier of TAMGA - they produce the organic cotton yarn that our direct suppliers turn into fabric. Indorama is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) for all processes relating to organic cotton yarn.

Primayuda Mandrijaya is based in Boyalali, and is a secondary supplier of TAMGA – they produce the Tencel yarn that our direct suppliers turn into fabric. Primayudha has earned the Oeko-Tex 100 ‘confidence in textiles’ certification, ensuring that all of their products are free from harmful chemicals.

PT. Embee Plumbon Tekstil is based in Cirebon, and is a secondary supplier of TAMGA – they produce the Modal yarn that our direct suppliers turn into fabric. Embee has earned the Oeko-Tex 100 ‘confidence in textiles’ certification, ensuring that all of their products are free from harmful chemicals.   

PT Kurnia Ratu Kencana is a fabric mill based in Purwakarta that specializes in circular knits, dyeing and finishing. This mill knits and dyes the organic cotton, Modal and TENCEL® that TAMGA uses in its Basics range, using only low-impact dyes in a process that has earned them an overall certification by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

PT Dan Liris is based in Surakarta, and weaves TAMGA’s Micro-TENCEL® into the luxurious eco-friendly fabric that makes up our Signature and Premium lines. Dan Liris is also a world-class printing facility, and works with TAMGA to perfect our unique prints. The mill has earned the OEKO-Tex Standard 100 certification, guaranteeing that all products are free from any harmful chemicals.

CV. Tarum is a family-owned company in East Bali that creates the deep indigo colour for our Premium line. Tarum harnesses the Indonesian traditions of natural dyeing using local plants, leaves and roots from their own gardens, and applies the colour to our eco-friendly and amazing Micro-TENCEL® fabric.

On the island of Savu, Threads of Life (TOL) works with the Hawu Miha cooperative to create the unique 'ikat' textiles used in TAMGA’s Premium line. Each thread is bound and naturally dyed before being skillfully woven into a textile. These cloths are part of this community's ceremonial dress, and tradition requires that they are made only with homespun thread, and coloured with natural dye, giving the piece a material connection to the place where it was made.

Our ‘cut and sew’ factory in Bali, Siobhan and Fionnuala Garment Manufacturing, is an ethical factory that is literally full of smiles. Run by an Australian sister duo, workers get fair treatment for fair work, and the quality of their craftsmanship speaks for itself.

After producing amazing eco-friendly pieces, we’re not going to compromise on the final details. TAMGA Garments are lovingly packed into bio-degradable poly bags from Green Heart Degradables, with recycled paper tags from Saraswati Papers in Bali.

 

At TAMGA Designs, we believe that great design can’t exist without great materials, so we use only sustainable fabrics that are as good for our style as they are for the planet.

TAMGA Designs was established in 2014 in Dhaka, Bangladesh, where Yana Barankin and Eric Dales were working in the field of international development. Yana and Eric saw first hand the disturbing conditions in which many Western brands are manufactured, and quickly realized that the fashion industry needs positive examples. 

TAMGA started with two simple questions - is it too expensive to produce a socially and environmentally responsible piece of clothing? Does style have to be sacrificed for this responsibility?

Yana and Eric began working with a small group of tailors in Dhaka, who benefited from good wages, a clean working environment, and ample training. Over a year in 2013-2014, the response of TAMGA customers made our mission clear – people were waiting for a responsible option that didn’t break the bank or cramp their style. The business was profitable, and over $2,000 was donated to an orphanage and school for street children. Game on. 

In 2016, TAMGA Designs moved to Indonesia to scale-up and produce a full line of clothing. Joined by the amazingly talented designer Anna Valero Domenech, the team travelled the islands of Indonesia meeting suppliers, artisans, and organizations. The result is an innovative, responsible and quality-driven supply chain that is based on shared goals for the future. The TAMGA tribe is stronger than ever, and the future is bright!

 

TAMGA is a new company, with limited resources and big goals. Crowdfunding helps us to share our story with a large audience, gives people an opportunity to get early deals on our very unique pieces, and ultimately gives TAMGA the funds to access even cooler eco-friendly materials for our next collection!

Risks and challenges

Our main challenge is spreading the word and make TAMGA known to the world! As our production is well underway, we are extremely confident in our delivery timeline and hope that Santa’s sleigh (aka the post office) runs smoothly to ship our early bird backers in time for Christmas
