Fair production according to Fair Trade standards
The studio where the MoreThanHip collection is made is located in Ciudad Bolivar. This is one of Bogota's most dangerous neighborhoods, where there is high unemployment and drugs and violence are the order of the day. This studio was founded in 2001 by Doña Rosa, after the leatherwork company, where she worked for 16 years, had gone bankrupt. Meanwhile, the studio already has more than 25 employees. Due to this success, Doña Rosa has become a role model for the women in her neighborhood.
New opportunities in the slums
The studio offers people at the bottom of society a chance of a permanent job. They are trained and have a better existence with normal working hours, a good salary according to local standards and health insurance.
