Their skills and craftsmanship
Our Agra partner, not too far away from the Taj Mahal, specialise in high quality, leather footwear. This factory supported us in developing a collaboration between their leather craftsmen and fair trade organisation SETU, so that our Sugar Skill boot design could be adorned with intricately engraved silver heel and toe-caps hand-made by local artisan groups.
The Agra supplier ticks all the Spell sustainability boxes. Their SAI SA8000 certification focuses on eight key areas related to human rights examining both national and global labour laws as well as living wage. It’s clear that these guys put sustainable and ethical practice at the forefront of everything they do. They power their entire factory with solar panels (saving 200,000kg of CO2 a year), they have an in-house training academy to offer employment and skills to local villagers, and they provide charitable support to underprivileged children, hospitals and aged care facilities within their community.
