Family operated factory? Aw, at least they keep the kids with the parents in this sweatshop.

@Shagatron Kids are only allowed to visit our workshop on planned family days =) That is if the young-lings are thrilled to see how a pair of jeans was being made from hand cut raw fabrics thru contrived sewing steps. Its also a good opportunity for them to see their folks honing their craft as livelihood. We regard this part as passing on the family heritage and essentially that's how we (as third gen) learned the process. To address your comment on a more serious note, our Zhongshan factory have been in denim making for almost 3 decades. There's a coterie of experienced tailors specifically dedicate to work on this project. Our average craftsmen/tailors turn over rate is 8 years+, even considering the escalated blooming industry opportunities thru-out the Southern China in last decades. We always strive to provide a safe, open work environment as the exact opposite of sweatshop. You maybe mis-informed, but Child Labor is still strictly prohibited in China. In attempt to put things in demographic perspective, Zhongshan has been developed as one of the pillar capital in apparel manufacturing within CN. We believe well made goods can come from many different origins, and its always about the people behind the brand. With that said, we will always proudly stand by our jeans and the folks behind making them.
Cheers!
