Ways of Change is a co-created fashion brand connecting people affected by conflict and migration to a global community. We offer fair wages to refugees so that they are supporting and empowering themselves through entrepreneurship while sustaining and building upon their traditional skills. Our products are made from upcycled, organic, natural, cruelty-free, fairly traded and locally sourced materials.
“Ways of Change is a story that starts by being inspired by the people we work with.”
In offering a high-quality and socially conscious product we aim to inspire people to use the power of their purchase to create positive change in the world. In doing so, our customers are interested in the story behind their products, the story of the person. We believe that by connecting people we can create a space of mutual empowerment where people recognize themselves in others and co-create together.
A portion of all Ways of Change’s profits are used to support both Entrepreneurial Training and Community Projects that focus on empowerment and sustainable living, contributing to the positive change that the communities wish to see.
The name Ways of Change recognizes the existence of the many avenues that can and will lead the world to positive change, both within the refugee sector as well as the fashion industry. It reminds us to keep an open-mind and appreciate others’ approaches to change as well. Ways of Change also pays tribute to our connection as a family in that the “Way” has been borrowed from our mothers’ maiden name, Conway.
Ways of Change is an embodiment of our inspirations, experiences and vision for the future.
