Justicia! The Ethical Clothing Label

The Maquiladora Dignidad y Justicia (Dignity & Justice Maquiladora Co.) is a worker-owned ethical clothing manufacturer and wholesaler created and sponsored by the Comité Fronterizo de Obrer@s (CFO), a Mexican workers' center.

Dignidad y Justicia, and its Justicia! label, are located in the border city of Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico. The company was established by and for garment workers forced out of their jobs after standing up for their rights in maquiladoras owned by large U.S. apparel corporations.

Piedras Negras, 21/2 hours from
San Antonio, Texas

 

Dignidad y Justicia produces t-shirts, tote bags, and sweatshirts in organic and conventional cotton. The women, working in two workshops, have been able to pay themselves double the standard wages of the large maquiladoras and determine the terms of their employment. 

There are only a few producers of sweat-free, fair trade and green apparel in the world. Dignidad y Justicia is one of them!
