Our manufactury in Thailand
The majority of our paigh garments are manufactured in a small, family-run production facility in the heart of Thailand. Great importance is attached to a pleasant working atmosphere, personal demands and individual development. Some of our tailors also work from home in the surrounding villages and can thus also take care of their families and spend more time with them, while at the same time contributing to their livelihood. Unfortunately, not many people in Thailand get this chance. Therefore, we support our producer where we can and promote this great model together with you.
Our efforts concerning fair working conditions, environmental protection and fair trade in Thailand have finally been recognized by the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO). Among other things, this organization is committed to supporting socially and economically disadvantaged minorities. Since the end of 2019, we are allowed to carry the status "Guaranteed Fair Trade Member.
Handmade accessories with love for detail
Our accessories are created in constant collaboration with local Thai artists and designers. With loving details and creative ideas, they create unique products with a traditional background. Here, traditional craftsmanship is combined with modern influences and we are happy to help the artists to bring their great work out to the world. We are proud to be able to offer unique accessories, bags, purses and much more, and to support and promote our partners with every product.
Quality and design of our fashion items
paigh's quality standards start with the selection of fabrics for our trousers, scarves, skirts, kimonos and jumpsuits. Only the most beautiful patterns and the best quality make it to our tailors, where they are cut to size and handcrafted lovingly. The models and cuts are further developed, improved and adapted to the wishes of our customers. For example, we use special sewing techniques to make the seams more robust and beautiful, use more elaborate edge finishes and pay great attention to detail in every step of the process.
A happy communal life
paigh does not only stand for colourful and fair fashion but also for social diversity and openness. The employees in Thailand come from four different continents and seven different languages are spoken in the workshops. With this diverse gathering of people from all over the world, we also want to welcome the diversity and opportunities of the whole world at paigh. Here, everyone should have a chance for a fairly paid job, security and the opportunity to develop, no matter where they come from. People who have been disadvantaged or neglected for political or religious reasons are also offered the opportunity to improve their lives through a secure job. It is often difficult or impossible for people in these problem regions to find a job. Through paigh, experiences can be gained, skills can be built and contacts can be made, as well as other universal advantages for (professional) life. These special features do not only positively shape the working atmosphere, but also make the workplace an exciting, creative and progressive place for everyone involved.
Working together and supporting each other
Supporting our employees in Thailand is something very special for us. We actively encourage the creative development and growth of our employees. Interested employees can attend learning sessions to develop their design and creative skills and thus expand their abilities and learn new skills. Additionally, English classes are offered three times a week. The linguistic, economic, manual and social skills of the employees that we encourage and support at paigh provide great benefits for our employees throughout their lives.
Our manufactory in Portugal
Our organic cotton and ecovero viscose garments come from a factory in Barcelos, a city in the north of Portugal. Portugal's textile industry has a long tradition, which means there is a wealth of experience - fortunately also in terms of sustainability. Our partner producer has state-of-the-art machinery and resource-saving processing methods. For example, they only use organic quality fabrics for the fashion items produced for paigh. All items are produced in a water-saving way and with significantly reduced CO2 emissions. Relationships with workers and partners are also very important and are based on mutual respect, trust and support.
The production site is SEDEX certified. These seals ensure that important social and ecological requirements for working conditions, health and environmental protection and ethical business practices are met. In addition, it has been awarded the Standard 100 label by OEKO-TEX®. The label guarantees that the garments are safe for health by testing all components of the items for harmful substances.
