Cut From A Different Cloth

Because of Purnaa, I have become self-dependent and confident enough to leave the shelter home and live in my own place. Before, I was dependent on others to look after my children. Now I have valuable work skills, can take care of my children, and can live with hope.”

In an industry rife with exploitation and environmental abuse, custom cut-and-sew manufacturer, Purnaa, has developed a stand-apart reputation for its ethical practices. They source sustainable materials and ethically manufacture products for dozens of growing brands. And it doesn’t hurt that word has spread that their team possesses “ninja-like” sewing capabilities. It’s a powerful combination.


“We all know that in an ideal world, manufacturing companies wouldn’t exploit people or the planet. But brands looking for manufacturers are worried that feel-good, social enterprises won’t be able to meet their quality expectations or price constraints. At Purnaa, we understand the concerns of the brands we serve, and believe they shouldn’t have to compromise on quality or ethics”, shares Purnaa Director, Corban Bryant.

Recently, Purnaa received the US Secretary of State’s Award for Corporate Excellence for their work in Nepal, setting a new standard for ethical manufacturing in the region.

Purnaa was founded in 2013 with a mission to offer employment to marginalized people and survivors of trafficking, abuse, and exploitation. Today Purnaa employees over 160 staff, all of whom are committed to offering a great manufacturing service so their company will grow and create more jobs for those in need. They believe that with a good job, people can overcome even the most difficult histories and start fresh.
