We believe that fashion has the power to impact lives for the better, be kind to the planet and even protect wildlife from extinction.
Wildlife Works factory in Kenya was founded in 2001 with a mission to create a market-based solution for wildlife conservation that provides real, sustainable development to rural communities.
Located in our wildlife sanctuary, the factory helps to sustain over 70+ local jobs. With living wages and full health benefits, these women and men can support their families and plan for their children's future without engaging in poaching or slash and burn agriculture.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
"Our company has had the pleasure of producing apparel with Wildlife Works for more than three years. In this time span, we have produced several styles, using their EPZ’d program to
import goods at an affordable cost.
The factory personnel always strive for high quality and are willing to take initiative if something is unclear or a technical issue arises.
The impact the company has had on the local community and wildlife in the area is truly extraordinary. Their conservation efforts combined with production of quality products have
made apparel production with Wildlife Works a pleasure. We look forward to continuing a strong relationship with them in the future."
"Our brand as has been working with Wildlife Works for several years to produce our apparel designs, and we have continued to be impressed with their operations. They produce quality products and the way the factory is organized creates maximum impact across the local community and within the wildlife sanctuary.
Every step of the way, they take into account the impact on people, the planet, and the wildlife population. Wildlife Works is an an incredible example of a social business - making both excellent products and upholding the highest ethical standards."

"Wildlife Works does great work - the quality of the pieces that they made for us was excellent. They were helpful in guiding us through their production process and working on tight timelines! We believe strongly in the impact that they have in the community by creating supportive, good jobs, and admire their broader mission of a integrated approach to community development and environmental sustainability."
I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Wildlife Works. The team of awesome individuals genuinely believe in making a difference. They really do add great value to my product.
"One could only wish that every garment factory in the world was like Wildlife Works. Set in an exquisite rural yet extremely impoverished area of Kenya, the factory impacts the extended community and the environment in so many positive ways. Their commitment to social impact for people in the area is clearly evident and the work they do to positively impact the local wildlife and environment is an absolute inspiration.
These additional credits aside, the factory itself is a wonderful environment with an on site crèche and the use of bio gas for energy, but most importantly they produce a faultless quality product. I have done many production runs where my feet have not even set foot in the factory and their communication and efficiency has never given any problems. They’ve always delivered on time and handled our delicate silk chiffon and silk fabrics excellently."
