Our Inspiration - Freeset

Freeset Global is our fairtrade partner and the inspiration behind what we do. Freeset is located in Sonagacchi, the largest, most infamous sex district in Kolkata, India. Within a few square miles more than 10,000 women stand in line selling their bodies to thousands of men who visit daily. Many are trafficked from Bangladesh, Nepal and rural India. For others poverty has left them without options. The cries of their hungry children drive them to sell their bodies. Every woman who finds freedom through Freeset also brings freedom to her family. They find hope for a brighter future and the means to make it a reality. As the business has grown, a positive community has emerged calling itself the "Freeset family. This family not only supports its own members, but impacts on the wider community. The common understanding is "we're in this together".

Freeset are currently in the process of building a second factory and community hub in Sonagacchi and are raising funds through The Gateway Campaign. We are committed to seeing this campaign being a success so $2 from every Mallu t-shirt sold will be donated directly to The Gateway Campaign. We also encourage our fellow breathers to check out Freeset's website and learn more about their amazing story.
