The company

About Us

TDC Fashion provides an alternative to the traditional method of apparel manufacturing by way of deploying advanced technologies in a socially responsible manufacturing process.

We put the ability to design and produce your own fashion label in your hands. Cutting-edge research and computer technology have been harnessed to allow anyone from an individual fashion-enthusiast to a top-level fashion-designer to have unparalleled creative control in the process of designing custom clothing.

Once a design has been completed. It’s virtual specifications are made reality by the skilled hands of our seamstresses. Primarily comprised of widowed refugees, our manufacturing process gives work to those who need it; and because there are no middlemen between the design and manufacturing processes, each employee is paid a living wage that allows them to purposefully provide for their family and community.

It is this drive that pushes Kindah, to create a better life for other women who are displaced by war and famine.

TDC Fashion Turkey

Earlier this year, through our subsidiary in Turkey, we pioneered a protocol with the Turkish government allowing us to contract Syrian refugees legally -regardless of their citizenship or work permit status- and pay them directly through bank deposits. Our pioneer business model allows us to operate efficiently while protecting our contractors’ rights to heir earned wages and legal employment benefits, thus creating a win-win situation.
