We are working towards setting new Standards in Apparel Industry, and our Core Values will help us accomplish our mission via 3 core Business Units: Sustainable Global Exchange, Global Social Innovation Lab, and Technology Platform

SARAGH’s approach to make Apparel Industry ethical, sustainable, transparent and traceable; is by starting fresh with design thinking, embracing research based sustainable practices, leveraging the latest technologies, and incorporating the insights from decades of industrialized apparel production data.
Global Exchange & Small Business
In a nutshell, SARAGH's Mission is to revolutionize the textile industry by replacing sweatshops with Fair Trade practices; conventional raw materials with 100% certified Non-GMO Organic materials; and redesigning the processes & operations with sustainability as a key product feature.

Global Exchange: a nexus for all socially and environmentally responsible apparel industry partners on one platform, and form SARAGH Global Exchange for procurement and sale of goods within the apparel industry. All Supply Chain players will operate as business partners as opposed to the transactional relationship of a typical vendor-customer. All business partners will share the same mission and vision of promoting Sustainable practices, and elevate each other's social impact and bottom-line. Some of the services provide are (not limited to):

  • For Fiber Manufacturers: Source Organically produced Natural Raw Materials (Cotton/Flax/Jute etc.) conforming to GOTS and SARAGH Standards
  • For Yarn Manufacturers: Source SARAGH audited Organic Natural Fibers conforming to GOTS
  • For Fabric Manufacturers: Source SARAGH audited Organic Yarns conforming to GOTS and chemical free dyes
  • For Apparel Brands, Retailers, and Designers: Vertical Integration and Private Label Product development & manufacturing using materials conforming to GOTS

Small Business: establish micro-franchises of socially and environmentally responsible small suppliers [farmers and small weavers in specific] in the emerging markets, enable them to flourish by providing access to a centralized financing, marketing and distribution network.
SARAGH's flagship showcase stores will enable the micro-franchises to reach the end consumers in a sustainable way. Eventually, all such micro-franchises will be part of the SARAGH Global Exchange.

SARAGH’s approach is research and data driven: a) starting fresh with design thinking, b) embracing research based sustainable best practices, c) leveraging the latest technologies, and d) incorporating the insights from decades of industrialized apparel production data..

Technical advancements in Textile Engineering


S A R A G H Technology Platform
A key milestone goal of 2018
While our paramount focus is on building real relationships with real people, our partners [ranging from farmers to finished good retailers], we believe that an advanced technological platform will play a crucial role in bringing  transparency and  traceability to the entire supply chain. For instance, a retailer would be able to trace all the people involved  and materials used in producing each unit of the end product. This level of transparency and traceability ensures that all partners abide by our vision and mission of socially and  environmentally responsible practices in the textile industry. All certifications and audit reports will be tied to each transaction in the supply chain, ensuring that no room is left for adulteration in any part of the supply chain. 

We are hoping that our technology platform will be available for all partners to connect and exchange information and contracts by end of 2020. We will be including a status report of the technology platform design and deployment in our quarterly Newsletters
