How we empowers and educates artisans
As a UK-based organisation with a global reach, TSG understands just how important it is to give something back to the people that help make our business a success.
A retailer of on-trend and vintage fashions and beautifully handcrafted home wears, here at TSG we are exceptionally proud of the relationships we’ve built with the individuals that create our wonderful product ranges and wanted to give something back to help support the families and local communities that we work so closely with.
As a socially responsible business, it is our ethos to help our production partners around the globe in a range of ways, in order to help make their lives better and to encourage them to develop their skills further.
Here are just a few of the ways that TSG provides support to our craftspeople and their families:
Education for children
Many of our artisans live in countries where access to education is limited for those from poorer backgrounds. By supplying a regular stream of work to our craftspeople and giving them a fair price for the goods they put their heart and soul into creating, we open up the opportunity for these workers to educate their children and offer them a brighter future full of possibilities.
Our artisans are also given the chance to undertake educational courses for themselves in key subjects, such as reading and writing. This provides them with greater opportunities for the future and re-enforces our commitment to socially conscious and ethical product sourcing.
Skills development and fair pay
With many large corporations taking advantage of their workers by offering poor rates of pay for products, TSG is seeking to start a fair pay revolution for our artisans. We are leading the way by providing fair rates of pay to the individuals that lovingly create all of our products.
Taking things one stage further, we seek to support the individual and their communities by providing skills development training in order to help them learn new techniques, so they can increase the range of products they create.
TSG keeps our craftspeople informed about current market trends and quality expectations, so they can harness their creativity to craft a range of high-quality products that fit our customer’s needs perfectly.
This not only allows them to try their hand at new products that delight our customers but also ensure regular, fairly paid work to help them support themselves and their families.
Health and wellbeing
The health and wellbeing of our craftspeople is extremely important to us, so we aim to provide practical support and guidance on health and safety at work so that they can enjoy a good working environment free from the risks of accidents or injury.
We also provide help and support on personal health and hygiene to help our artisans to enjoy a life filled with possibilities for a happy and healthy future , so you can rest assured that every product purchased from TSG helps to enhance and improve the lives of their skilled and highly-respected craftspeople.
