Tonle - A Zero Waste Company
We are a group of people brought together by the common belief that garment manufacturing can mean more than the exploitation of people and resources. That fashion can (and should) feel good, look good, and do good at the same time.
Currently 30 talented people are employed in our Phnom Penh workshop who make our beautiful zero waste clothing and see it through from fabric sourcing to production to shipping. They all earn fair wages and benefits, including a generous vacation package, free lunch, training opportunities, and team retreats. Team members are trained in many aspects of the production and have the opportunity to rise up into management positions - rather than staying stagnant in an assembly line style workflow. tonlé partners with a weaving cooperative in northern Cambodia which also employs 20 artisans, most of whom are full time. These skillful weavers have been perfecting their craft for over 20 years and we are proud to have them working on tonlé’s exclusive textile designs.
We're currently working on updating this page with bios of all of the people who make tonlé possible from start to finish. Stay tuned!
