Australia-based company POSSE offers a handmade clothing line that is characterized by timeless silhouettes, exquisite detailing and an artisanal aesthetic. Not only are consumers able to find garments that "reflect an urban vintage vibe with a French flair," they also get the chance to contribute to sustaining a truly ethical fashion practice.
Each piece in POSSE's handmade clothing line is created by a skilled artisan that works from home. This allows individuals to regularly earn an above-average wage at flexible hours. This business model opens up immense opportunities, especially for skilled craftspeople with children, to be empowered through their art and financially comfortable. To ensure best practices and the ethical treatment of all employees, POSSE visits its workers on a monthly basis.
