OUR HANDS TO YOURS

We are participants of the slow fashion movement. We believe in quality over quantity and handmade over mass produced. From our hands to yours a BYTAVI product is produced with care. The fabric is hand selected, the pattern is cut and given to a BYTAVI seamstress to bring to completion. Her hands are in the process from first stitch to proudly signing her name on the finished product.

The BYTAVI line is produced under fair trade trade principles by a team of talented seamstresses in Cambodia where poverty is widespread. The production process is not hurried or pressured. It is fair. Each seamstress receives a fair wage at the end of the week. It is safe. Each staff member and seamstress is valued as a person as we maintain a safe and holistic work environment.

The BYTAVI Workshop serves as much more than a vocational training project.

Our purpose is to connect capable women with their self-worth. We desire empowerment for us and for you. A BYTAVI seamstress is full of pride knowing you choose to invest in her work. And you? You are empowered to shop differently by investing in quality. The quality of life and a handmade product.

  • FAIR TRADE

    The workshop operates under fair trade principles, respecting the dignity and health of every employee.

  • HEALTH & WELLNESS

    In addition, daily lunch is provided by CGI and regular health checks are available, including special attention for expecting mothers.

  • SPIRITUAL FORMATION

    Every Wednesday, the sewing machines come to a halt as an opportunity is provided for Bible study and worship.

Join a movement that frees women from the bondage of absolute poverty, and be the voice for the BYTAVI women in your community!
