What is Fair Trade?

From Fair Trade USA: "Fair Trade Certified™ products were made with respect to people and planet. Our rigorous social, environmental and economic standards work to promote safe, healthy working conditions, protect the environment, enable transparency, and empower communities to build strong, thriving businesses. When you choose products with the Fair Trade label, your day-to-day purchases can improve an entire community’s day-to-day lives."
Matano has partnered with Fair Trade USA to ensure that the workers who make our products are being treated fairly. This is why all of our products will have the Fair Trade Factory Logo on them, so that you can wear our products with pride, knowing that worker's lives are better because of your decision to purchase our Fair Trade Certified™ products.

Risks and challenges

We are two guys who have committed our very best work to this brand. We believe in the simple principle of "do what you say you're gonna do" and this applies to our Kickstarter campaign just as much as anything. We plan on doing everything we can to deliver our products on time and on point, with our Kickstarter backers being priority #1.

That being said, there are some inherit risks and challenges in working with a factory abroad. We're consistently talking with industry experts in Fair Trade clothing production to ensure that we are working through this process in a sustainable and practical manner. We believe we have developed a solid relationship with our Fair Trade factory throughout the sampling process, and don't believe any major issues will arise during the production process.

Communication is key. We plan on keeping all of our Kickstarter backers updated throughout the production process. If any delays or setbacks come up, our backers will be the first to know.

We truly appreciate your interest in supporting our brand, and will do everything we can to make this an awesome experience for you.
