NIRAPON + AMADER KOTHA Nirapon is a group of 50+ member brands working to promote a culture of safety in 330+ factories through the Safety Management Program. As a part of Nirapon and Amader Kotha, Tailor Vintage is committed to working with sustainable and safe factories, as well as providing support for the people who work in them.
CODE-OF-CONDUCT Our yearly Code-of-Conduct (COC) audits ensure safe, sustainable, and robust factories and quality-of-life for employees.
LOCAL + SUSTAINABLE JOBS The factories we work with are local to the employees. This means employees can walk to work, send their children to the campus daycare, seek medical care in the campus infirmary, and have lunch with their families at home.
OUR FOUNDERS' VISION
TEAM BUILDING Our co-founders, Richard and Joy, have worked with young leaders in the apparel industry in Bangladesh for over two decades to build and support a team that intimately understands the people and resources in their community.
SUSTAINABLE SOURCING Before placing orders, Richard visits each factory to get to know the owners and their factories, and understand their management philosophy. This ensures that every partner we work with is aligned with our standards of a safe and sustainable working environment.
LONG-TERM PARTNERSHIPS Once each factory management or partner supplier is vetted out, our co-founders build long-term partnerships with them, because feedback + optimization = strength. We believe that relationships with members in our supply chain should last more than a season because long-term relationships yield sustainable partnerships.
