ZERO TOLERANCE FOR UNFAIR TRADE PRACTICES
Several important steps are involved in creating beautiful, earthy clothes using organic colours and hand-weaving techniques. At BUNTI, we have a deliberate reverence for our designers and their art.
We make routine visits to various parts of the world visiting the studios of our designers, to ensure a healthy bond professionally and also lasting relationships.
We are dedicated to eradicating serious problems that come up within our community of artists owing to a lack of resources and funding, by concertedly raising awareness about these issues among the general public and our customer base.
When procedural glitches come up in our dealings with our designers, we collaboratively brainstorm, strategize, and come up with mutually beneficial action plans. BUNTI provides dedicated support to the designers at every stage of the production process.
We expect complete compliance from our brands regarding the wellbeing of the
craftsmen and artisans that make their organic fabrics, and our deliberately stubborn that our fair-trade guidelines are adhered to. In the event that a certain brand is unwilling or unable to adapt to our fair-trade guidelines, we deem it best to bring our professional relationship with the said designer to a close, for the wellbeing of our artisans and customers.
