Meet Ding Yongzhong, Qin Meiyuan and Angenia Liu. They are the ones who made our bikinis and leggings.
All of them work in this studio for between 5 and 15 years and bring that skill and expierience into every piece that goes through their hands. Since the studio doesn´t have a huge amount of workers (around 15), it is easier to take care and to provide for every one of them. Each worker has a face and a voice, too. The studio pays a wage higher than the average and have reasonable working hours. Lunch time is important, just as finishing in time. Of course, overtime can´t be avoided, especially in the high production season for swimwear. But these hours are being compensated and result in a higher wage.
Angenia, the manager, who helps us communicate with all the workers.
Meiyuan, leader of the sewing team, who is sewing most of our bikinis
Yongzhong, pattern maker, who helps us make our designs fit to your body.
LOOKING AHEAD INTO THE FUTURE
Creating a long lasting change in the working conditions inside the fashion industry is not an easy fix and takes time. It can only be achieved by taking one step after the other and continuously moving into the right direction. This we want to do from the very beginning and recognize our responsibility as a eco-friendly swimwear-brand.
We are very glad to have found a reliable partner for our production and learned a lot from this visit, so hopefully you can see a lot more of our designs come to life by the hands of our skillful partners in China.
Team boochen with all the workers
