At Fair Wear, we know there’s a better way to make clothes. A fairer way. The global garment industry employs some 60 million workers, most of whom face difficult and unsafe working conditions, don’t earn enough to cover their living expenses, and have limited freedom to stand up for their rights. Our goal is to push the garment industry towards the new normal: a world where fashion is fair for all. We work with our 120+ member brands, who are committed to finding a fairer way to make clothes, and we engage directly with factories, trade unions, NGOs and governments to find answers to problems others think are unsolvable. Together we’re stitching together new solutions across the supply chain to make fashion fair for everyone.
Behind every item of clothing are people who have woven and dyed the fabric, trimmed and stitched it together. Sustained living wages are a human right. Everyone should receive a wage that covers their basic needs. This is not the reality for millions of garment workers across the globe. Our Living Wage tools and knowledge-sharing capabilities help brands, suppliers, trade unions and others understand how it is possible to increase wages for workers and still remain competitive.
Kno Global’s vision is to humanise the supply chain. Brands avoid the next factory scandal, factories reduce cost and make sales, workers have a voice.
Kno Global’s approach starts with building relationships with workers. We convert real-time data into actionable targets for factory managers to improve upon. Brands get visibility into supplier performance and improve operational efficiency.
Customers include Marks and Spencers, Target, Decathlon and Orange. With the goal of reaching 10m workers and establishing a new standard for industry.
For example, with a factory of 1,000 workers in India, Kno was able to reach 75% weekly engagement during COVID-19. Including 2,482 comments and 1011 photos. This resulted in 4 improvement areas being addressed.
Our Founder and CEO Marianne started the business as a regular consumer moved by a Bangladesh factory collapse, and resulted in her moving to China to work in a factory. Our solution is built with workers.
