It all started when we went to an elephant sanctuary in 2013 as tourists. We found that elephants at this sanctuary were beaten and tied to trees. In that moment, we knew that there is something that we can do to help improve the living conditions of elephants. From there on, we decided to sell pants and donate a portion of the proceeds to saving elephants.
Before our story began the three founders had never met. We were going along our parallel lives. It was the merger of our experience and expertise that built this brand. This is our story.
Our products are hand-made by fixed workers at our warehhouse in Thailand under the fairtrade policy. We also have volunteers coming in and out according to their busy schedules to assist us.
Our member of our team plays a vital role in the success of our cause to save Elephants, selling one pants at a time.
