Ethical Apparel Manufacturing

Ethical manufacturing produces a product or process that is in balance with the world and produced with the best intentions. There’s a vast complex universe of things to be considered: the ecology affected by the sourcing of the materials, the life cycle, the waste process, and of course the complicated lives and needs of those people who produce the items.  

Certified by Prototype is not an “organic” certification, it’s not “fair trade”, it’s all of them and none of them. It’s what we call a Common Sense Certification. A protocol that is built and maintained with passion and care.

Client Testimonials

I am not a designer by profession, but my first love is garments and sewing. When I came across your website, I read and learned a lot. I had a crash course in fashion manufacturing and loved it! 

Your website served as an educational tool for me while thinking about what to do with my passion/addiction. 

I feel like we will be a good team!
