They also incorporate hand made tradicional lace and embroidering giving support for local artisans, providing an exotic twist to thyeir design. Please visit their website:

Hola! Hope that this group is still active! I'm in Puerto Rico and know that we're not quite part of Latin America - but we are neighbors and there may be some of you from the island here in this group. I'm new to Puerto Rico and am starting to look for fabric would also be great to know of others out there interested in ethical fashion. If so, perhaps we can organize some events. Does anyone know if any of the designers in this September? Thanks and hope to hear from you!

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.

El proyecto “Fashioning an Ethical Industry” presta apoyo a profesores y estudiantes que cursan estudios relacionados con la moda con el objetivo de que sean ellos los que provoquen el cambio en esta situación. Para ello se les muestra una visión global de las condiciones laborales de la industria textil, se concienciándoles sobre las prácticas actuales de algunas empresas. Asimismo, se les sugieren iniciativas para mejorar las condiciones y se les anima a una relfexión crítica y creativa sobre este problema así como se les invita a que aporten nuevas soluciones.

En estas páginas podéis encontrar hojas informativas y materiales didácticos en español, que esperamos sean de utilidad tanto para la actividad docente como para completar los estudios. Incluiremos más documentos en español durante el próximo año y por ello os recomendamos que lo reviséis de vez en cuando para estar al día de los nuevos materiales.

Hi guys,

I am currently an intern at a UK Ethical Clothing company and previously graduated in Textiles Design.

I am about to embark on a 6 month round the world trip and will be in Chile, Bolivia and Peru from March - May this year.

I am very interested in all these fantastic projects across the globe and hope on my return to get involved myself. Not wishing to let this opportiunity of travelling pass me by, I wondered if there was anybody based in these areas that would be willing to allow me to visit their projects and see what they are doing and how they work?

I would be extremely grateful!!

Thank you very much!!
