JOYYA needs our help
I found Kindred during a random google search and after my first email exchange with Alexandra I knew I would be working with her. The process was seamless - my designs were honoured, she made very last minute changes with ease, and accommodated a tight deadline. The t-shirts I ordered are incredible quality, super soft and fit true to size. I received pictures of my shirts being made which sparked a few tears and a solid appreciation for the women who helped bring my idea to life. I am so happy with my decision to go with Kindred and JOYYA. Thank you so much!
The fabrics are gorgeous, soft and with a very nice weight. I love the finishing! It is prefect - there is nothing like holding a garment that shows pride of work and attention to detail.
I am so happy to be able to order these and I am already planning new motifs with a local designer for products in the near future. I thank Kindred and thank all the teams at Freeset for continuing to work under very challenging new circumstances and continuing to keep worker safety as a priority.
Our collaboration makes me feel connected although we are so far apart. Keep well.
We are proud to wear our new staff t-shirts from Freeset Tees at Catapult Coffee and Studio! The design process was quick and simple, and the t-shirts themselves are so well made and so soft! As a social enterprise ourselves, we are grateful that Kindred Apparel has given us the opportunity to not only source fairly, but also support the indispensable work of Freeset while doing so.
We can't wait to start sharing the story of these shirts with our customers as well!
'Every year in our company we gift our employees and vendors with ethical and socially conscious gifts, and now with Freeset we get to put those gifts in a bag that represents the same value as the gifts inside.
The bags they made for us turned out even better than I imagined…can't wait to fill them up!'
With the obvious worthwhile basis that helps women in India overcome poverty, this made for a good initial reason to order product from Freeset. However, there was more to Freeset than the overt altruistic cause; The ordering process was flawless and simple and the product is stylish and well-made. The modernistic reviewing software, along with the detailed personalization's with branding and tagging made for an exceptional experience dealing with Freeset and Kindred Apparel.
If you are in need of product, we would highly recommend Freeset! The merchandise even arrived ahead of time with each t-shirt being separately wrapped. Incredible!
It was a couple years ago now that we stumbled onto this gem of an organization and have be blessed to work with them every year since. The product is wonderful and they always seem to be looking for ways to improve even though it is already great.
The best part for us has been their customer service. My questions are answered quickly and problems sorted out right away and always helpful in our artwork and getting it just the way we want it. Even better yet the product always comes quickly!
As the Co-chairs of the Local Arrangements Committee for the 2019 Statistical Society of Canada meeting held at the University of Calgary, we wanted to impress our participants who would be attending our campus for the very first time. We made deliberate choices on how to spend our budget funds in ways that would make a difference at the meeting and beyond.
Our conference bag from Kindred Apparel was one of those choices. The courier bag with our logo turned out as beautiful as it was functional for our 527 meeting participants. And they loved it! For its looks and quality but also because it was fair trade. We heard that comment a lot - people really appreciated that they too supported this worthy social cause. We also ordered t-shirts for our volunteers a bit last minute and Ali was able to have them delivered on time.
Our student and faculty volunteers loved them and still wear them with pride today. If you are looking for conference items, or gift items, we highly recommend Kindred Apparel. You will be well supported through the design and ordering process and your items will impress those receiving them.
We work exclusively with Kindred Apparel.
We chose to work with this company because of their high quality products, ethics and mission. We strive every day to improve the lives of animals and with this business partnership we are helping women as well.
