Making Clothes Without Destroying The Planet
Rachel Faller, founder of Tonlé, a Cambodian based fashion company, poses a simple question. How many of us can ensure our clothes were made without the use of slavery or significant and needless damage to the environment? And if we could, in the wake we would find exploitation, which many of us are well aware of but feel largely helpless to change.
That’s why Faller remained in Cambodia after studying fair trade for her Fulbright Scholarship to open her own factory and set a new norm.
All of Tonlé’s garments are made from remnant materials sourced from factories that would otherwise throw them away or burn them.
