Pearl is a factory that we have started working with in India. Pearl is a bigger company than we are used to, supplying to many well-known brands. We will only be working with their GOTS certified factory so will hopefully encourage them to grow this area of the business.
 
Pearl offer computer skills training which empowers women and children in marginalised communities. We were drawn to Pearl as their origin story reflects that of Ismail’s. 10 years ago, they started out as an agent just selling fabrics and a well-known high-street brand supported them to set up their own factory and helped them grow into the business they are now. They are also very happy to help Ismail continue to grow his factories.
Why we love Pearl:
