Business Description


Fikay Eco Fashion is a simple concept with a huge impact. The customer buys one ethically made recycled bag or related product and the business will donate up to 50 bricks to building projects in producing communities. The company pays a fair competitive wage to local villagers who create the bags out of locally sourced recycled materials, so not only do the producers get a fair and reasonable wage, but they also have the opportunity to learn valuable skills that permit them to have a sustainable, effective way to get out of poverty. The ethical collection is then sold to Fikay’s customers. The mission is to design, manufacture and sell inspirational, hope-inspiring fashion that is high in quality. Fikay is currently in partnership with Topdeck Travel, TNT Travel and Rough Guides, and they plan to launch an eco fashion tourism internship where fashion students and individuals can go on a fashion adventure and impact every part of production.
