Our sewing studio
Since 2023 we have been sewing at KEP, a training center and sewing studio based in Izmir. Refugee women from Syria, but also single and widowed Turkish women are paid fairly there. Childcare is also provided free of charge at the studio. Sustainability is an important factor at KEP: rainwater is used for ironing and solar panels for part of the electricity generation. KEP was founded by the Baden-Württemberg NGO "3 Musketiere Reutlingen e.V.". We are very happy to work with KEP and sew beautiful, fair, animal and human friendly garments.
