Studiojux.org’s first project is the factory Be Suited. This factory, that produces clothes for a.i. fair + eco clothing brand studio JUX in Amsterdam, is located in the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu. The factory deliberately choose this location, in order to create jobs in one of the poorest countries in the world. Be Suited currently has twenty employees, including thirteen tailors – which the factory educates itself. MORE
Unfortunately Be Suited has to deal with the electricity failure regularly. This results in significant delays in production – delays that the company cannot really afford. With the help of solar panels this problem can be solved, whilst at the same time the factory increases the sustainability of the work process. This is why Lush awarded Be Suited with the revenue of the Charity Pot for the months April and May.
Lush supports organisations that are working for a better environment for animals, people, and nature. That is why they developed the Charity Pot. MORE
Do you remember the times without any computer, laptop, smartphone, or iPad? Probably you will find this hard to imagine. Nowadays if you don’t have a computer, it takes a lot more time, energy, and money to do your work. This also applies to the employees of Be Suited, however, unfortunately not owning a computer for them is a harsh reality they have to live with. Yet, to ensure the continuity of the factory, the possibility to use a computer is very necessary. That is why we are aiming to give each Be Suited employee a laptop.
In order to do this, we need some help. MORE
