Tribe Alive empowers women around the world to find financial freedom through safe and meaningful employment at fair wages. As a company, we measure success by impact, not profits. Our model is moving the fashion industry toward a more humane approach, where the Earth and the maker are valued equally to the consumer. Tribe Alive began as one woman’s way of doing her part to end family separation due to the economic insecurity facing women all across the world. Founder, Carly Burson, put her years of fashion-industry experience to work, designing goods that would help makers in artisan communities access the global marketplace and create sustainability where there had been vulnerability and insecurity. Carly’s vision for minimalist designs in high quality, eco-friendly materials that can be worn for years has remained central to Tribe Alive’s design philosophy from the beginning. Each year, new efforts in environmental consciousness and new strides in holistic employment of women across the world bring us closer toward our vision of honoring the earth & maker equally to the consumer.
