Hi everyone, Im the founder and CEO of a new social responsible e-commerce portal called touch2give.com
We are looking for independent and niche brands that: 1. are made in a responsible way and follow UN policy on labor laws- so this means any brands made in Europe or countries not found at high risk
2. brands that have an ethical or sustainable component
We also give 5% of what we earn on commission to support our philanthropy partners as corporate social responsibility is also important to us.
I used to be responsible for client marketing in Asia for Christie's and than I went to design school and launched my own brand in Paris so I understand all the problems that emerging brand owners face.
The idea of touch2give.com was started thinking of how to unite and help brands and all my friends in fashion who are brand owners and workign and creating much more innovative design and concepts than the BIG BRANDS- that have become banal.
I have read your post with interest. I am based in Cape Town, South Africa and we manufacture a range of leather handbags. We are a small company and is looking for a portal to take our company and products to the next level. Our quality is excellent and compares well with products priced much higher. I am of the opinion that if the right people see our products we will do really well, but as you are aware it is difficult to sometimes reach the correct people. I can send you a catalog should you be interested.

Have a look at our website www.annliz.com. We have created a small platfrom of international designers who take their social responsibility and are aware of the impact of the environment here. They want to do it different than the big brands here who try to avoid andy responsibility but get the best deals. The designers we work with have achieved a international recognition and only produce high end handmade pieces. Good luck with you platform, Mera
