Our head office is located right next to our factory in Kerobokan, . In most fashion companies, the office and factory are completely separate entities, but we find having the two together helps us to work more effectively. If our designers need a sample, for instance, we get it in just a few hours. We have a quick fitting in the office to show our pattern-maker how the design works, and they can then make any necessary adjustments immediately.
Our factory employs pattern makers, sample tailors, production tailors, cutters, quality controllers, production managers, packers and warehouse managers. We have our whole production cycle right here in , from designing through to cutting, tailoring then retailing to our shops.
Our factory is always open for customers who would like to see how we operate: We believe in full transparency and we believe you should be able to know who makes your clothes and under what conditions.
Our normal working day is eight hours. If our workers want over-time, they can take it; sometimes, if they have families, they can take things to sew at home and be paid by the piece. It’s important to us that our staff come from a mix of backgrounds ; it’s partly practical but it also keeps our workplace multicultural and harmonious. We respect the religion of each staff member, and they get the holidays they need to meet their religious obligations, whether they be Hindu, Muslim or Christian.
Our staff play soccer together once a week, while on the last Friday of the month we celebrate the birthdays of people over the previous month with a big donut party. Once a year we have a fun outing together as a group, such as going white-water rafting.
