The Outland Story
We think it’s important to celebrate people and businesses that help us make conscious consumption choices. Outland Denim is one such business. Outland Denim began its jean-making journey when founder James Bartle had a fortuitous encounter with an anti-trafficking group, and then travelled to Asia and saw first hand how human traffickers prey on vulnerable young girls in order to service the sex industry.
After learning that once a girl has been rescued and rehabilitated, sustainable career path is vital for securing her future, James created the “Denim Project", which would enable those girls who demonstrated an interest in sewing to put their new skills to use.
Listen to the difference they are making in the lives of their seamtresses, each one they know by name.
