Our Takasa journey started with becoming parents and consciously making eco-lifestyle changes. Having children made us think more about how we shop.
As we looked deeper into industry, it became increasingly clear that industries such as textiles are in the midst of a deep moral and ethical crisis. We thought about cheap overseas labour that is continuously exploited under abysmal working conditions. We also read that traditional methods of manufacturing cotton consist of harmful insecticides and pesticides.
We didn’t want our shopping habits to amplify these issues. So we decided to make changes. When we couldn’t find what we were looking for, we decided to take action. This meant leaving our corporate careers behind in order to apply our combined skills towards the objective of promoting environmental responsibility. We made it our mission to deliver goods and services that add value to people’s lives.
