SUSTAINABILITY & PRACTICES
Behind each of our hang tags, you'll find a number and a name handwritten. The name corresponds to the sewer who made your garment, and the number refers to the chronological order of your piece out of all the other pieces made at the same time.
In The Philippines, the average sewer makes below than that of the country’s minimum wage (₱530/$11.00 USD), making us one of the lowest paid compared to other Southeast Asian counterparts such as Indonesia, Thailand, and India.
At A Las Siesta, our partner sewers get paid above minimum wage, are provided with health benefits, and are entirely home-based in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
We’re especially proud to be teamed up with Everyday Ethical, a Filipino, Female-led company that shares the same values and ethics as us, and ensure that the well being of our seamstresses are our top priority.
