Trina Minter Naughton, the designer and co-founder with Simeon Naughton thinks the world has reached a time where over-consumption has led to the production of goods and services that cause social and environmental disasters. Exploitation of people and the environment are part of today’s chain of supply for the majority of products the world consumes. They are appealing to people who recognise these issues and choose to make conscious choices about what they purchase.
15% of Tradisi’s profits are spent on projects that support women and their families throughout Indonesia.
