Our journey began 25 years ago in Bali. Today we are still family-owned and family-run. Our obsessive attention to fit, lasting quality, and stellar customer service have won us much support. Our love for cool, casual-chic style has brought us many devoted followers.
We created a new company in Bali to ensure that production for Wooden Ships would be fair and ethical. The factory produces all our knitwear as well as accessories. Because we own and operate the factory, we can go beyond fair wages and conditions by providing our employees with extensive training and opportunities for growth. We invest time in each worker to provide them with new skills.
In addition to generous vacation, holiday, and sick day benefits, we provide free health care for all factory employees. We also support our workers with generous pro-family policies for maternity, bereavement and time off for religious ceremonies, like the local custom to celebrate the 90-day milestone of a new baby.
Our factory is spacious, breezy and light-filled, creating a pleasant, clean and healthy environment for all of us to work in together.
While knitting machines are traditionally operated by men, we initiated a program to train women and break that cultural barrier. Today, more than 60% of our knitters are women.
