FWB’s mission is right in its name - Fashion with Benefits.

It is our goal to provide the latest and trendiest in fashion with the benefits of Fair Trade, sustainable growth, equitable distribution of wealth and women empowerment.

Our tailors are women from the slums of Mumbai. We’ve trained them to make products for you that meet the most stringent quality control metrics required by our premium international buyers like Monoprix in France and People Tree in the UK.

We are also completely carbon neutral and run our entire operation on solar energy, making sure that we grow keeping our future generations in mind.

More importantly each and every one of us who works at FWB, own’s a part of FWB. And so fair trade is not a certification that we try and attain, but the foundation that the entire organisation is built on.



You can buy with confidence, knowing that you are getting top quality products. We source only the best fabric, and use the same fabric and quality checking for both our export and domestic sales.

Buying from us, you are also directly putting money into the hands of some of the most vulnerable sections of your society, the cotton farmers, the small scale weavers, the producer women who otherwise end up as domestic helps. Come visit our centers and see how your purchase is changing the lives of so many.

And last but not the least - with zero-carbon footprint, be happy in the knowledge that our kids will thank you for your choice.


Fair trade is as simple as saying that everyone who contributed towards making a product “fairly” shares in the profits from selling those products. As simple as that might seem, it is a rarity to find. Most companies share less than 15% of their income on salaries and don’t share any part of their profits with the very hands that built their empire. The rich therefore keep getting richer, and the working class, the producers -- keep getting relatively poorer.

At its heart FWB is a non-profit, so we do things very differently. Not only do our salaries correspond to over 40% of our income, we share profits with everyone at FWB. There is no “invisible hand” that takes a share – everyone from the person who cuts the cloth, to the person who stitches on the last button - is an owner. And so, our heart is in the game. This guarantees better products for our customers and a better world for our kids.
