We're looking for international interns on a Sustainable Fashion Business Development internship in India to bridge socially aware buyers artisans to ensure ethical trade through fair trade practices. The internship's mission is to elevate awareness about artisans and the part they play in the global economic growth through their services.

Interns will learn about how we help their clients source ethically produced, sustainable and Fair Trade products and at the same time attending global shows taking the artisan products providing a global market.


The internship's focus is on popularizing Fair Trade through services and products. Our expertise and services are extended to any buyers and producer groups who are interested in widening their fair trade horizons. 


Fair trade is a social movement that ensures that the farmers receive a fair and stable price for their produce. Slow fashion encourages slower production schedules, fair wages, lower carbon footprints, and (ideally) zero waste. Slow Fashion is not your typical typical mass produced fashion, but a conscious decision with due respect to planet and people behind the product.


Interns can get involved in:

  • Learning about our in house brand for fair trade organic cotton clothing, non-violent silk and natural fibers
  • Helping drive B2B relationships in India and internationally
  • Improving quality control
  • Attending meetings with up and coming designers and fashion startups that want to collaborate
  • Assisting in various pop up shows
  • Creating content around the product and story behind the material and its producer


Interns that are interested in fashion, non-profits, sustainability and business development would be a great match for our team. Working with a team of 4 others, you'll have an integral role in the mission and vision of the company.


We ask for a minimum commitment of 4 weeks and maximum commitment of 12 weeks.
