The Abi Ferrin Team believes that every person who works on their products deserve to be seen and valued. Since 2007, Abi Ferrin's Freedom Project has existed to aid those who are constantly faced with seemingly impossible circumstances. As a whole the company is committed to doing business solely with ethical manufacturing partners. Thus far, Abi has partnered with groups in Nepal, Cambodia + Peru to help give survivors of abuse, exploitation and discrimination, a chance to have a happy, fulfilled life personally and professionally. With your conscious purchase, you are ensuring an ethical supply chain and helping to employ both men and women who come from marginalized backgrounds as every Abi Ferrin garment is tagged with a special handmade button, so every purchase is a loving contribution. Our goal is to give our partners the ability to always be able to buy their own shoes, and help them change the mentality that has kept their families in this oppression for generations.
