Conciouse consumer does not mean go with war head to punish rural employer in and around organic garments production units in jungle to rural belts of traditional areas, in 3 rd world countries.
WHEN THE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY HAS COME TO BE PRESENT NOW IN THE AREA OF SPIRITUALITY A CONCIOUSE PERSON CAN BREATH WELL .HE CAN FEEL RELEVIED OF THE TENSION OF THE EVIL ,THE SCIENCE WAS CAUSING TO CRAFT INDUSTRY A GREAT HARM all along . IT INTRODUCED PAINT AND CHEMICALS, PLASTIC AND RADIATING MATERIALS IN RURAL AREAS FOR URBAN POPULATIONS a BUY was just buy . The purchased goods musbe alive , have messages, give statements symbolise meaningfuly express clearly and impact correct to a soul.Such a product is organic and green.It is not own in the fashion classes, it is achieved in the fields under the sun with sweat on . When the worker come home the relieving of pain from the smile of the babies he left . This is important not the convenience comfort all , we are now fed up with and is unsustainable. A true conciouse one will first fight for the taste that is
getting rot in tongue and eyes of urban consumers . WORKERS HAVE LOST THEIR BIRTH RIGHT TO WORK WITH NATURAL MATERIAL NOW WORLD OVER ARE DOING POOR QUALITY JOB ,JUNK ECONOMY IS ALREADY RUININIG THEM . IT SUBSIDISE THEIR WAGES AND MAKE THEM LOOSE JOB AND DINE ON DOOL OUT MONEY FROM GOVET.

A conciouse ego grip person is more danger , he must be conciouse and creative restoring satisfaction and fulfilment to workers in a balancing way. Out siders who are unconciouse of themselves can not see the emotional wealth ,social bond the rural poor are having in their life . By throwing few dimes they can fill their stomach , what about the urbans who are emotionally beggars.Do they see the difference , in rural India when we were poor we were buying quality milk and meet , now with tonns of money we can not buy them . Is this your fight to uplift the poors ! In poverty we were better off now in wealth we are at evil edge .

As a conciouse consumer buy true, organic and natural direct from producer on line one to one and have garments that will lost your life time . a pair of denim jeans and couple of pair of Ts try to live out your life . You can pass on this as family heir loom as well lived life symbol to your generation. They will think that your are really conciouse one who lived on genuine organic goods entire life simple and straight . This is the duty of conciouse consumer, not to go and fight with war unwanted . This is the organic era ,digital era, use it creatively as example this is conciouse and creative .

Educate the American consumer on what the reality of the journey is of the garment from farm to factory and then ultimately to the consumer.We are use to cheap or cheaply made clothes here and even when they are expensive most Americans are clueless. I am tired of seeing high priced items in the major magazines whose designers have no social consciousness but the dollar.

Tribal people till day make their own garment during Colorah times to protect themselves virus and germs of Colorah. All kids garments can be dyed with herbs that heal the kids , all one needs is the equipments like this simple .

Virtue based Organic and Natutural Dyed garments Suppliers are needed for the exis

tense of CONCIOUSE CONSUMERS .

nogaya looking for sales agents and distributors in your country

1- Agents
The agents are the Nogaya sales representatives for agreed territories. Their role is to sell the Nogaya items to deco shops, high street shops, retail chains, etc ... They do report to us regularly on their work. They place the orders with us by email.
• There is a minimum of USD 1,500 per order.
• They make 15% commission on the sale turnover they generate. For instance, the agent sells for USD 1,000, he/she makes USD 150.
• We expect an agent to generate a turnover of at least USD 10,000 a month.
• The commission is paid by money transfer once the customers have fully paid (100%) Nogaya.
• As a fair trade business, and as a partnership goodwill, we expect our agents to buy the samples at wholesale price.
The agents will have to manage the relationships with Nogaya retail customers on behalf of Nogaya. As such, they need to be able to explain the Nogaya marketing stance, especially in terms of lead time to manufacture the women artisans' items. The lead time can go up to 4 months for some items. They also need to talk about our payment terms. As a fair trade business, Nogaya pays its women artisan groups when the order is placed. Hence Nogaya expects its customers to pay a minimum of 50% of the order value at the order, the balance upon delivery.

In order to simplify delivery and to manage import regulations efficiently, Nogaya will sell its products FOB India or Israel. The transport will be arranged by Nogaya and charge at cost. All import duties, VAT and any other local taxes in the import country will be handle by the final customers.

2- Distributors
The distributors are the Nogaya selling arms and representative of Nogaya in agreed territories. They market the Nogaya products to their own network of customers. They organize marketing campaigns and promotions in order to push the sales. They use local advertizing when deemed necessary. They report regularly on sales progress.
• They buy Nogaya products at 70% discount on public selling price and resell to their customers at the public selling price. Based on their knowledge of the local market, they could sell at a higher public selling price and share the difference with Nogaya who in turn could share the extra profits with the women artisans groups in the form of extra training or supports.
• Nogaya expects its distributors to generate a minimum of USD 20,000 a month.
• As a fair trade business, Nogaya requests its distributors to pay 50% of order value at the order, balance upon delivery.
• The minimum order size is USD 5,000.
In order to simplify delivery and to manage import regulations efficiently, Nogaya will sell its products FOB India or Israel. The transport will be arranged by Nogaya and charge at cost. All import duties, VAT and any other local taxes in the import country will be handle by the final customers.

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for eco-friendly fabrics that are manufactured in the US, perhaps those that are manufactured with a closed loop,made out of domestic raw
materials.

Some of the fabrics that I'd be interested in included:

Peace Silk (I know it's mainly produced in India.)
Wool (Found Vermont Organic Fiber Company, but would consider others.)
Bamboo blend, Chitosan, Modal blend or Lenpur (for suiting tops)
Sasawashi
Seacell
Soyfiber
Tencel

Most of the tops will be woven, not knit. If you can suggest other fabrics
based on drape, that would be helpful too. Some of these fabrics I've
chosen based on properties other than drape. Therefore, I'm not
certain that they will be the best for what I need.

I'm looking for fabrics for all seasons right now since I'm looking to use the cost of these fabrics to do financial projections for my
line. If you work for a textile wholesaler, I'd love swatches if you can send some you think would be helpful.

Thank you all in advance!

~Jill
