FOR LOVE & MONEY- THE PODCAST
EPISODE 10 -
Posted on February 7, 2022
My guest on this episode of the podcast is James Bartle, the founding CEO of Outland Denim, a fashion company on the vanguard of the socially conscious manufacturing movement...
James is passionate about denim and the craft of jean manufacturing, but also the unique ability of the garment industry to drive change.
Outland Denim employs young women seamstresses who’ve been impacted by human rights abuses and gives them a hope and a future through sustainable employment and career progression in their Cambodia-based production facilities.
This interview is packed with insights and inspiration. But honestly, the central theme to this interview is the power of love to create change. I dare you to listen to it and not be inspired to act.
