Those living in a developing world deal with many hardships from day-to-day and it takes the work of genuine people to help them provide for their families. Montreal based Moral Fibers is hoping to provide artists in poor communities an outlet to earn income in order to provide for their families. Moral Fibers is an ethical clothing label that sells clothing printed with the artwork designed by artists in developing countries.
Paintings from artists in Haiti are commissioned and then printed on t-shirts by co-founders Martin Weiss and Matthew Brightman organization. Moral Fibers commissions each artist to create 12 unique art pieces, which is purchased from them for $10 USD each. If an art piece is selected for print, the artist receives 15% of the revenue made from each sale of clothing with the depicted artwork. The designs are sold on the Moral Fibers website starting at $40 USD and are available for men and women.
Consumers are also able to read about each artist, see their paintings and learn who is benefitting from their purchases. Ethical clothing lines that are able to impact societies and communities while ensuring fresh new designs are crated regularly is an innovative idea that we hope succeeds and becomes more of a norm in our first-world nation.
