Who Am I?
I am Phương Châm (second from left), the founder of EcoClo. I learned sewing from my mom, a tailor who loved her craft and her customers. I followed my passion for fashion and met many wonderful people who inspired me with their stories and styles. I wanted to help them express their identity and personality through clothes that fit them perfectly.
That's why I started EcoClo, a platform that connects customers with skilled tailors who can make customized clothes for them.
EcoClo is more than a business, it's a mission. A mission to empower customers and tailors, to celebrate diversity and creativity, to make the world a more beautiful place.
We are facing the consequences of environmental pollution caused by fast fashion- every person knows, but the immediate benefits can make many people forget.
Beside that, in Vietnam- where I live, the garment workers, and sewists struggle in their life with meager wages. They work at least 12 hours at the factory but their income is only 84% of the minimum living wage. The consumer may not understand their hardship when they live thousands of miles away and I'm afraid most slogans or words like: "fair pay", "ethical fashion", "slow fashion" and "sustainable fashion" in the media nowadays may only stop at the marketing side.
At EcoClo, we are fixing it.
What are we doing?
EcoClo provides Made-To-Order clothes made by the best local sewists. Combining technology with craftsmanship, our platform allows customers to order from a thousand trendy designs, and personalize fabric, and their measurements.
We also distribute value fairly to the right person who created your clothes.
What is value we bring to?
First of all, we help our customers get the preferred clothes, well-fitting and affordable.
Second, Sewists who join EcoClo as a partner will receive orders, and make it done from anywhere in the World. They also get the chance to increase income higher 45% more than the industry average wage and, at the same time decrease the working time by 27%.
Third, we cut down most of the material waste by the made-to-order manufacturing model, also the overstock is zero. As a result, we reduce a large amount of waste in our environment.
