Meet Your Maker

We are proud to say 100% of our apparel is made in partnership with the Blessed Project. The stories of our incredible partners in the Philippines deserve to be heard and we wish to raise awareness about the heart breaking impact of human trafficking. We thought we'd also give our Winki community the chance to connect with their AW23 Sweatshirt maker on the other side of the world (look inside the sweatshirt for your makers name tag!) and open up the opportunity for sponsorship if you so feel inclined. To get in contact about sponsoring or donating towards these beautiful women, please email lmtitular.honor@gmail.com.

Trigger Warning: These stories discuss topics of sexual abuse and child sexual exploitation.
