Autonomie Project is a new Fair Trade fashion company offering stylish sweatshop-free & eco-friendly footwear, clothing and accessories.

We work exclusively with small, independent cooperatives and Fair Trade certified facilities located in developing areas of the world. We use organic cotton, all natural FSC rubber, and other eco-friendly materials whenever possible to lessen our environmental impact.

We assist our workers with the development and marketing of their products so that they may prosper and lead sustainable lifestyles. By introducing them to US consumers like you, we can empower these disadvantaged workers to become thriving participants in a reconfigured global marketplace.

It has been proven time and time again that the only viable response to the issues of sweatshops and child labor is to establish favorable commerce in which a worker can depend on a reliable, fair trade that will end the cycle of poverty.  Autonomie Project is working to do just that.

We provide our workers with a fair wage so they can beat sweatshops while providing our customers with competitively priced style.  Our products are relevant and fashionable for today’s market, always vegan , always eco, and always sweatshop-free so that you can wear your values and still look good!

  4. Hi,

    Thanks for working to try and create a new type of global marketplace.

    I noticed your website mentions soon having information on “our workers in the field.” It will be great to learn more about the people, where they live, how they are organized, their working conditions and what standards you use to insure a fair wage etc so that consumer educators like me can build an understanding of your model.

    Looking forward!
    Jackie

    Hi,

    We are the nordic distributors of the Ethletic brand and we have seen the lovely picture of the “happy new customers” wearing their Ethletic sneakers in the Seattle event.

    I was wondering if we could get permission from you to use this picture for our campaign here.

    Thanks for your attention, and congrats on your cool blog!

    1. Hi Eliana,

      Nice to virtually meet you! Yes, you can definitely use that photo for your campaign. Please just make sure to credit Autonomie Project, Inc.

      We hope to work with you again in the future.

    we want to use the logo of fair trade for our seamless garment in india pls revert back


    1. Hi there – the Fair Trade garment certification is new in the United States and is still in its initial stages. Only a few factories have been chosen to work with the certifying organization’s pilot program. I encourage you to contact TransFair USA as they are leading the pilot garment certification, are responsible for auditing and certifying factories and producers, and are the only ones that can administer the use of the fair trade logo. You can find more info on their website: http://www.transfairusa.org.
