There is a Human
As a society, we forget that the clothing and accessories that we purchase make an impact globally. They are not just items in our closets. They are a direct result of a series of decisions made by designers, manufacturers and consumers. Each of these tiers hold the power to influence our society for the better.
However, for our purchasing power to make a positive effect, we must first all be aware of our options and the ways in which even small changes can impact society positively on ethical and environmental issues.
As the consulting and production branch of Alice, this is the mission that Socially Made in Italy has given itself. A platform created to connect a diverse group of people, in the scope of creating better opportunities in an ethical manner, while preserving traditional Italian craftsmanship, such as tailoring, leather goods, framework and felt. Sartoria San Vittore has also gained recognition for their production of lawyer’s robes. The most recent numbers indicate that 2000 lawyers and judges, throughout Italy, have purchased robes sewn by Socially.
Furthermore, Socially can help you create and develop your own laboratories, to inform and educate your staff members, and to also assure quality levels within your production.
Socially allows for you to contribute to sustainable and ethical practices, without taking on the necessary infrastructure required. It also permits for smaller productions at a lesser cost.
Finally, as part of the consulting work offered, Socially can assist in the development of CSR initiatives and educational material, for corporations and institutions.

The co-operative model of business is based on ethics, values and principles that put the needs and aspirations of their members, above the simple goal of maximizing profit. Through self-help and empowerment, reinvesting in their communities and concern for the well-being of people and the world in which we live, co-operatives nurture a long-term vision for sustainable economic growth, social development and environmental responsibility.
