We’ll let you in on a little (not-so-secret) secret, every brand featured on EME will have the Fair Value selected because it’s our main prerequisite for being featured on our site. But why is it so important? The fashion industry is known for its unfair treatment of the people who work within the industry and our biggest goal is to put an end to that. Growers, sewers, creators, and makers must be treated as the skilled individuals they are, and paid fairly for their work. We back brands who ensure safe working conditions, fair overtime pay, freedom of association, health benefits, maternity leave, and wages that exceed minimum rates.
