In 2008, Becky Jones set up an ethical, fashion workers co-operative specialising in female underwear. She empowers marginalised women by providing employment, education, social and community space. Becky Jones believes; “Nobody has the right to wear a cheap pair of knickers that means a child has had to work 14-hour days.”
Becky had the idea back in 2006, work started on the business full time in July 2008, we were legally incorporated on December 12th 2008 and we launched officially on the 1st December 2009.
