This company offers crafted fashion, made to the customer's taste, and with a story behind it. “We offer our customer total transparency about the production process.” explains one of the founders, Drakshan Khan. “We have grown to become 100% sustainable based on fair trade and thanks to the sale of ecological shoes, hand-embroidered by our artisans, which won the Best New Product award at NY NOW.”
This company has direct access to the U.S. and eastern markets, which will be worth $3 billion in 2020. We are able to access the shoe market demonstrating the basic sustainable product and hand-embroidered shoes for an industry that continues to grow.”
Purple Impressions’ growth plans include access to the global market, which will allow them to employ more artisans, providing them with medical attention, and offering educational programs so that women can invest in their daughters, and avoid having to marry them off when they are still minors. Purple Impressions also wants to cultivate organic cotton in the regions where they operate, improving the lives of the people who collect it, principally women.
