Evan Brooke is a Texas-based fashion designer whose primary aim is to combat forced labor and exploitation entrenched in our “fast fashion” culture. Evan Brooke offers beautiful clothing made with social and environmental responsibility. These classic styles are designed to last through many seasons and fashion cycles.

A few words from Corban Bryant, of Purnaa Enterprises in Nepal: “We are a contract manufacturer that makes garments for export to designers in the US and Europe. We also create training and job opportunities for survivors of exploitation. Many of our employees are men and women who have suffered under human trafficking, bonded labor or discrimination due to disease, caste or religion. We believe that social business creates sustainable ways to address real issues. It’s not charity, it’s real jobs that empower people to a fresh start and a changed life.”
