making a difference

What you buy makes a difference

Our ethical and sustainable journey began well before the conception of
Forsoul The Label. It was an experience of precious moments with our friends whilst living in Bali, ensuring that we were creating a slow fashion label, with the highest ethical practices and support for the artisans and makers. This has always been the foundation for everything that we do at Forsoul The Label.

It is our vision to create fashion that impacts our Earth and its people in as little way as possible. Conscious fashion is good for the soul and it’s about time we all came together to drive change.

We hope to be able to celebrate exotic locations through our travel-inspired prints and pieces, without impacting on the future of those locations and its people. Embracing new destinations, communities, cultures and adventures forms the foundation for a lot of what we do at Forsoul The Label. We want to minimise our impact and preserve the future of these places as best we can.

Bit by bit, we hope to help drive change within the textile industry so that a new universal standard is reached.

our products

For us, creating conscious fashion means making an unwavering commitment to…

our planet

At Forsoul, sustainability has always been at the forefront of our minds. Our pieces are hand crafted in limited runs, as we continually invest our time and resources in doing better.

Responsible fashion

We engage in responsible processes in design, purchasing and production. We interact directly with our suppliers on a daily basis to ensure positive working conditions for all within our supply chain.

Our responsible fashion commitment extends to our fabrications. We are committed to using and exploring the most environmentally friendly fabrics we can. Every inch of our fabric is hand-printed using DYSTAR Inks, the leading sustainability supplier in the textile industry.

Handmade artistry

Working with local artisans across Bali, we are proud supporters of local manufacturing and preserving the artisanal skills of Indonesia. Their expertise is integral to the design and execution of our collections, with these skills often being handed down across generations. 

supporting small community business

Every Forsoul items is hand-produced by family-run factories in Indonesia. We have personally visited every factory we engage to ensure our working conditions and wages are fair. Having the ability to support the local economy and provide local Indonesian families with access to the global marketplace is paramount for us.

supply chain transparency

 We have a hands-on, collaborative approach to our manufacturing, which means we are part of every step. We ensure that we work alongside those who share the same vision and values as we do.

Our makers share our vision for minimising waste wherever possible and assist in reviving any excess fabric into our zero-waste accessories.

Quality control

We want your Forsoul to journey through life with you. We have a firm quality assurance policy to ensure your Forsoul purchase has a 100% happiness guarantee.

Responsible packaging

It is vital that we minimise our footprint wherever we can. Our garments arrive in eco-friendly reusable drawstring bags that can be taken on your adventures for years to come. We always say no to plastic and our eCommerce mailers are made from corn starch, making them compostable. 

Our commitments

Forsoul is committed to creating thoughtfully produced, socially responsible garments that will truly make your soul shine whenever worn.

We are committed to breaking down barriers of unethical work practices in the textile industry, so that a universal standard of working conditions can be reached.

our people

Forsoul was created from our love of travel and inspired by the captivating faces and incredible talent of those you may stumble across on your adventures...

Parental Support

We support women returning to the workforce after having children by employing ‘home-industry’ contractors, which enables the duality of parenthood and making a financial living. Many of our sewers work from home, allowing them the freedom of work life balance.

Employee Benefits

We pay all of our employees, in Indonesia above national minimum, along with additional benefits, such as flexible work hours and staff team building days.

Community Support

We have a sustainable and realistic approach when working with our local Indonesian communities. We support time off for religious holidays, special community events or personal family events. Our makers have the ability and freedom to manage their hours, however they choose.
