'Naja' is a UK-based underwear brand that empowers women by supporting a sewing program for single mothers. Although there are a number of fair trade clothing companies, there are few that specialize in producing ethical underwear. This company produces lingerie that goes beyond providing a high-quality product for customers.

Naja was founded by Catalina Girald as a way of creating a culture where women empower one another. Her goal was to produce high-quality women's undergarments from sustainable materials such as Peruvian Pima cotton and nylon-based lace. These garments not only make women feel good, but they also serve a far greater purpose. Naja partners with the Golondrinas Foundation to support an entrepreneurial sewing program. This program helps to educate single mothers and provide them with marketable skills that will aid them in future employment.

The company demonstrates that it is possible to produce high-quality underwear that also helps to make the world a better place.
