WASTE REDUCTION AND RECYCLABLE PACKAGING
Thanks to the fact that the majority of Iota products are made with yarn, there is little to no waste through their production. If a mistake is made, the yarn is unravelled and the knitter can reuse it, while the remaining yarn from each product is kept and used for other products. There is also no PVC used in their products, and the packaging is 100 percent recyclable.
FAIR AND EQUAL PAY
Iota has very close relationships with all of the women who work for them, visiting them once a week and paying them a salary that is above the minimum wage. If any of their knitters decide they no longer want to work for Iota, that is completely up to them. Again, Iota’s mission is to promote sustainable and inclusive economic growth, and that starts with how they take care of the women who produce their products. They want to empower women and girls in the communities they operate in, and that includes properly compensating them and ensuring they have fair working conditions.
The factories that Iota does business with are all family-owned, and when they begin a working contract with them, they must sign a contract that ensures they are adhering to the same social policies that are so important to Iota. This keeps their entire business in line with the brand’s ethos.
