The sewing process of our clothing takes place in different small workshops in Medellin. The women who sew all come from a economically vulnerable background. They often live in very small apartments where the living room is also workshop and even bedroom. Jungle Folk works closely together with the municipality of Medellin who has great social programs. One of these programs, called "CEDEZO" gives micro-credits to these women in order to make the purchase of a sewing machine possible, they also empower these women with workshops about quality questions, worth ethics, prices etc. Jungle Folk also has given some workshops in the frame of this program.
our beautiful blazers hanging in Estela's living room. We only bring them small quantities at once in order not to occupy their whole living space
each piece is discussed and looked at meticulously by us and the sewers. Here you see Maria with our creative director Pauline Treis developing a shirt.
in many home visits we ensure a personal and positive work relationship with our sewers and show them our respect and recognition
