Description + Story

The Loyal Workshop was founded to provide an opportunity for freedom. Modern day slavery is a phenomenon that we are not prepared to be apathetic about. We believe that another world is possible; a world where sex slavery is relegated to the history books. It’s a brazen dream but we’re putting it into action in one city, in one red-light community, with one woman at a time. We believe that business can be a tool to bring freedom to those trapped in slavery. Our business IS about freedom. Every product we create is part of a woman’s freedom journey. Thanks for your support.


Our Place:
We are smack-dab in the middle of bustling Kolkata, in an area called Bowbazar. Our workshop is perched on the edge of the second largest red-light area in Kolkata, where an estimated 1500-2000 women are still trapped in the sex trade. 


Our People:
Our artisans: are women from backgrounds of poverty, each with their own story of trauma and oppression: sold, stolen, trafficked and forced against their will into the sex trade. Without prospect of finding alternative employment, they were trapped. But still with dreams, talents and larger than life personalities. (You can read about each personality on ‘Meet the Artisans’)

MATERIAL:
LEATHER

2.2mm full veg-tanned cow leather produced using a unique eco-tanning technique; tough, resilient and sturdy.
The Leather we have selected has been chosen for its strength and durability but also for its natural full grain look. The veg-tanning process allows the full character of the leather to be exposed, honestly displaying the patina accumulated over a lifetime already lived. In its second lifetime as a Loyal wristband it will darken slightly and develop more character.

HARDWARE
Naked, polished stainless steel rivets; sturdy & tarnish resistant.

THREAD
Hand stitched .8mm Gauge woven polyester; super resilient, stretch proof and UV resistant.
