We don't cover much fashion on SocialBusiness.org but when we do, we admire it fully, and Kauli is an example of the way that ethical fashion converges with culture and social mission.
Kauli focuses on supporting women in Tanzania, who are mainly their employees. Some of the perks include living wages, health care, training, community meetings, empowerment seminars and more. In addition, sales from the fashion lines go into TEACH, which stands for Time to Empower Africa’s Children, which empowers youth in Kilimanjaro. The social enterprise is based in Moshi, Tanzania.
The fashion design itself tends to be printed bags and purses that mix textiles, hardware and leathers. It's a mix of urban cool with ethereal earth.
