The BYTAVI line is produced under fair trade trade principles by a team of talented seamstresses in Cambodia where poverty is widespread. 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 workshop is open Monday - Friday. We encourage a healthy/work life balance by closing on weekends and honoring holidays and maternity leave.
We provide lunch in the workshop. A few BYTAVI staff members cook the meal together, and all of the women enjoy sharing a meal together each day.
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.
We purchase remnant fabric to create our line. This means each piece is one-of-a-kind as materials are limited. The BYTAVI line is sold at the BYTAVI Boutique in Franklin, IN and across the United States at various locations.
Each staff member and seamstress is valued as a person as we maintain a safe and holistic work environment. 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-- quality of life and a handmade product.
