While Being Productive and efficient requires our Staff and workforce to be on their toes, we ensure we operate well within the capacity to become an employee as well as environment friendly.
Without Labor, Nothing Prospers
At our Factory, working hours are as per the government’s guidelines and the compensation paid to our labor workforce is well above the minimum wages bar as per the Minimum Wages Act. We believe our Workforce to be an important part of our Production and thus we take care of their financial wellbeing making their families to be self-sustained. It gives us immense satisfaction to be able to provide responsible employment for skilled as well as unskilled personnel.
We do Promote Womens empowerment by being able to be provide skilled training to them and make them part of our team. We ensure Women’s safety while all production activities and all basic amenities such as separate restrooms.
We strictly condemn any kind of child Labour, forced labor in our factory. We also provide free meals to our workforce and stay options who come from different parts of the nation.
Although, we give our labor complete freedom for forming internal committees and ensure complete transparency with them, our company has no issues such as Labour unions which creates hindrances in schedule of manufacturing. Training new workforce to acquire the shoemaking skill has been very essential in achieving the highest standard of workmanship.
Being a responsible Manufacturer
Unlike other factories, we manage our waste responsibly by segregating it and separating the ones which can be recycled such as leather cuttings, Rubber soles and Paper shreds which are sent back to our suppliers who use them again in inputs.
Tin Containers which contain Adhesives, Oil, etc. are cleaned and processed at scrap centers.
Although, it is difficult to be one hundred percent sustainable, we try to use components (raw materials) which are REACH compliant and leather which is chrome free as per the European Union regulation.
Chrome tanning was invented in 1858 and quickly became the most commonly used process, replacing vegetable tanning. “Chrome tanning took over because it was cheaper, it was quicker, it was more consistent,” explains Charlotte Turner, sustainable apparel and textiles specialist at Eco-Age.
If not managed correctly, chrome and other substances such as lead, arsenic and acids can get into the local water supply. This can have devastating consequences for soil erosion in the surrounding area and for people living around these water ways with symptoms ranging from irritation to the mouth, airways and eyes, skin reactions and digestive problems to kidney and liver damage, cancer and reproductive problems.
We therefore work only with tanneries who have complied to not use such harmful chemicals in tanning of Leather and taking a step towards sustainability.
