Having gone through a fashion design education, we know that clothing doesn't magically appear. Any piece of clothing requires hours and hours of fabric and design research, trial and errors in fitting, and the most labour-intensive part: cutting and sewing.
That is why we believe in valuing our clothing, and valuing the people who make them. These expert makers should be compensated fairly for their labour and expertise.
Our production processes are aligned with Halia's brand vision to be sustainable and humane by ensuring a fair working environment. We have made visits to our Bali-based manufacturer to ensure that they follow Indonesian Manpower regulations, with employees paid up to 3 times the standard wage, following regular working hours and paid overtime wages, are given health insurance, personal development opportunities and other benefits.
Through a partnership programme, a sum of the profits will also be donated to ROLE Foundation and BALI WISE, a zero waste facility and a women's development program.
We also ensure our fabrics are produced in facilities that are internationally certified for sustainability.

To minimise packaging waste, we have opted for a minimal and plastic-free packaging. Our shipping boxes and packing tissues are recyclable. Shipping labels and tapes are paper-based with a non toxic adhesive and also fully biodegradable, ensuring that they can return to the Earth safely.
Microfibres / Microplastics
Did you know that in a single wash cycle, your synthetic clothing release up to 70,000 Microfibres that contaminates the waterways? These microfibres, smaller than 5 millimetres, can be so small that they are not visible to the naked eye, travel the waterways and end up polluting our environment and our bodies. We recommend you to filter your synthetic laundry with a fine mesh laundry bag specifically made to stop microfibres from entering our water and food sources.
