Our journey is simple yet revolutionary

We stand shoulder to shoulder with an organization that dares to break the mold.

At Kindred, we're not just doing business; we're on a mission to redefine how business is done - to make an impact that echoes through the corridors of compassion. Our journey has been fueled by a simple goal: to challenge the norm and support an organization that redefines the game. 

More than just kick-ass, on-trend merchandise; we deliver a movement, a revolution – products with heart.

What does "with heart" mean to us?

Our customers are the conscious, the fearless, the ones who hustle hard, play even harder, and give a damn about the mark they leave on this world. 

Sound familiar? Yeah, we thought so.

Because it's not just about using recycled materials, organic cotton, and natural fibers (though we do that too). It's about injecting every fiber with the spirit of social mindfulness.

Enter our ride-or-die 15 year long partnership with JOYYA.

JOYYA (formerly known as Freeset) is our fair trade soulmate, making waves from the heart of Kolkata, India.

Handmade by craftswomen

Fair-trade guaranteed

100% Organic cotton

Eco conscious dyes and inks

So, what's the lowdown on JOYYA?

They are not just a supplier; they are a fair trade powerhouse based in Kolkata, India flipping the script on human trafficking and empowering women to reclaim their lives.

We're not just selling their products; we're telling their story.

A story of resilience and the unyielding fight against human trafficking. Nearly 175+ women have found their way back to autonomy, armed with training, double-the-usual wages, health insurance, pension plans, education opportunities, and even free childcare.

And here’s the kicker—profits from JOYYA...?

They're pumped back into growing the business and giving more women the power of employment. 

Every purchase from Kindred is a statement, a declaration of support for women, a commitment to our environment, and a high-five to businesses with heart. 

You're among good company.

On behalf of the BCSPCA Humane Education Team, we placed a large order with Kindred for our youth summer programs.

Every step of the way, from our first meeting, to the design process and timely delivery were above and beyond our expectations.

The product is fantastic quality, the colour in the graphic image were on point.

We absolutely love this company!

We have committed to having all of the apparel for our charity, A Home for Hooves Farm Sanctuary, provided by Kindred Apparel because their mission is so important to us. They provide great service and their products are high quality as well.

Home For Hooves

With the obvious worthwhile basis that helps women in India overcome poverty, this made for a good initial reason to order product from Joyya.

However, there was more to Joyya than the overt altruistic cause;  The ordering process was flawless and simple and the product is stylish and well-made.

We had an exceptional experience dealing with Joyya and Kindred Apparel.

Excellent customer service and excellent products.

We ordered customised aprons and our baristas and customers love them. And we love supporting Kindred's mission.
