Besides fairness and sustainability, transparency is one of our central goals. We want to take you on the journey of the production of a garment, from the growing of the natural fibers to the manufacturing in our studio. Each of our jackets contains nine different materials, which we source from different suppliers. You can find all the details about the materials by clicking on the map.
We were young and idealistic and dared to start our own production in Malawi. What started quite bumpy, has now developed into a small but fine manufactory in Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi. See for yourself in the video where and by whom your favorite Khala garments are made. We are especially proud that we can give you this insight into the otherwise so anonymous clothing production.
Are you wondering why fair fashion is more expensive than fast fashion from big fashion companies? The main reason is that people are paid fairly along the value chain. The largest share with 45% of the jacket price pays our labor costs. While we receive the minimum wage in Germany, we guarantee our colleagues in Malawi a wage that is at least three times higher than the local minimum wage. This puts us well above the fashion industry norm even within fair fashion. Only 9% per jacket is pure profit, which is invested in the further development of the company.
