Make a difference with Saught

My mind is officially blown.

Nothing in fashion is better than being able to make a real difference in this world. And Saught does, with much beauty.

Creating products from landmines and unexploded ordnance, Saught supports sustainability in post-conflict countries. Through this process, artisans from Cambodia NGO partner workshops gain income and develop skills.
