Hand stitched from start to finish by a brave woman fighting for her freedom.
The Loyal Workshop is a small ethical leather company based in Kolkata, founded to provide an opportunity for freedom.
The artisans are women from backgrounds of poverty, each with their own story of trauma and oppression: sold, stolen, trafficked and forced against their will into the sex trade. Without prospect of finding alternative employment, they were trapped. But still with dreams, talents and larger than life personalities.
Every product created is part of a woman’s freedom journey.
