The Ministry of Tomorrow (MOT) is a luxury Eco-Fashion House that supports important environmental and social developments around the world. Founded in 2011, MOT designs garments and accessories and produces them in facilities that provide fair wage jobs in impoverished communities.
MOT’s flagship factory is based in Nairobi, Kenya just outside of Kibera, one of Africa’s largest slums. This MOT-built facility sponsors skilled tailors who are recruited from within Kibera to make designer women’s and men’s bags, creating sustainable livelihoods for its employees. The employees at the bag factory are able to work in a safe, comfortable, and clean environment.
The fabrics MOT utilizes are cruelty free (no animal products), and or 100% Certified Organic and Fair Trade cotton. The cotton for example is sourced from Rajlakshmi Mills in Kolkata India that buys its cotton from the Chetna Organic Farmers Association a collective of more than 6,000 organic cotton farmers. The farmers growing the cotton are paid a fair price for their crop, are not exposed to harmful pesticides, and the organic farming methods do not contaminate the earth.
