This clothing brand is the first Muslim ethical and sustainable brand. They’re called Purple Impression and they dedicated their brand to meaningful fashion.
Fashion is the second most polluting industry after oil. And it’s also the most exploitive when it comes to worker’s rights,taking the lives of 1,134 people in 2013.
That’s why Purple Impression works directly with their women artisans. They believe employment and fair trade is the key to lift women out of poverty. They are the first Muslim brand to offer a certified organic cotton modest collection.
Do you think about where you buy your clothes?

Empowering Pakistani Women
It is very traditional for women in Pakistan to be confined to their homes. According to a staggering statistic from 2008, only 21.8% of women are employed in Pakistan. Drakshan and Afshan have literally brought employment to the doorstep of these Pakistani women who hand embroider Purple Impression’s Ethical Stitch line from their homes.
By giving these women a means to make an income Purple Impressions restores a little bit of their power in the household while providing a means to help support their families.
Let’s hope that more brands follow in their footsteps.
