What do they do?
Amana produces fashionably designed clothing.
How are they social?
They source suppliers who make fabrics with minimal environmental impact. All garments are made by women in Ain Leuh - a village in rural Morocco - who benefit from good working conditions, advanced pay and training due to Amana's fair-trade status.
