About basik 855
One of the reasons basik 855 started is because they wanted to do business as they thought it ought to be done. What does this mean? First, they pay their employees a fair living wage that they wouldn’t receive in garment factories. Beyond a living wage, they believe in offering a competitive benefits package that includes medical reimbursements, annual eye care exams, public holidays, paid time off, and maternity leave. When they outsource work, they collaborate with like-minded partners. They work with sewing enterprises that employ people from vulnerable backgrounds to develop their skills in order to build better futures. They’re not a charity, but they respect artisans. This simple vision has guided them from the very beginning. - See more at: http://basik855.com/about-purpose/#sthash.rWdXAfuQ.dpuf
