We work with Boumi, the only woman-owned factory in Kabul, Afghanistan and are proud to support these amazing people. 

"Our goal is to build a successful business while creating much needed sustainable employment opportunities for Afghan women and men. Additionally, Boumi’s objective is to encourage manufacturing of Afghan-made products with raw materials produced locally in Afghanistan." –Hassina Sherjan, Boumi Founder
