WeAreWorthy was founded in a process of deep introspection about humanity and the environment. Our planet, Hawaii included, has been disrupted by negative environmental impacts. The results of many adverse changes in our environment have made us aware of how important the balance between nature and humanity is. This is an issue for survival on all fronts.
WeAreWorthy is an exponentially growing company that generates environmental awareness by combining artistic talent, event production and environmentally friendly fashion and product manufacturing with the support of an international team of like-minded activists. We are here to teach the audience about the individual and global benefits of “going green.” A Team of enthusiastic optimists is here to tell YOU how to make a difference. We want everyone to choose Eco because it matters!
Ajrak is a unique classical blend of handloom textiles and vegetable dying techniques.The cloth is made in a sixteen step process of washing, dyeing, printing, and drying. Ajrak printing is recognized as one of mankind's earliest fabric printing techniques, which utilizes hand carved wooden blocks, dipped in dye, in a complex layering process.
The process of creating Ajrak needs time and energy. Depending on the complexity of the planning, the number of colors, and the different types of blocks used, it can take up to twenty people to prepare a single unique garment

How do we describe We Are Worthy?
We Are Worthy is a multi facetted company that focuses on outreach and education by way of fashion and event production. Our goal is to open the dialogue about environmental stewardship and the welfare of laborers within the supply chain. Being that fashion is the second largest polluting industry in the world, we find it imperative that we take responsibility for the decisions that we make as designers by providing eco-alternatives in the marketplace. We focus our environmental awareness and education efforts toward topics such as ocean conservation and fair trade labor practices.
What does We Are Worthy carry/offer?
Worthy LLC currently carries a collaborative clothing line between Worthy’s private label, We Are Worthy, and Jaipur Pink, a couture brand by Sunita Burad from Jaipur, India. This collaboration is referred to as WeAreWorthy x Jaipur Pink and is comprised of fine, high quality, hand loomed Bengali cotton boutique wear, and 100% cotton Ajrakh statement pieces for both men and women. Bengal is famous for their fine cotton yarns, while Ajrakh is a complex art form that utilizes a 16 step natural dying and washing process. These garments are pieces of art which coincide with our efforts of participating in the slow fashion movement.

What makes We Are Worthy unique?
We Are Worthy is a unique clothing brand because of its strong desire to bring high quality, limited edition, wearable art pieces, coupled with a story that takes us from Loom to Hanger™. We support the formation of a vocational learning center for women with disabilities in India with the designer we collaborate with and participate in outreach locally here on Oahu. We are very connected to our WHY which keeps our focus on positive change and environmental impact. We named our clothing line We Are Worthy to empower people to understand their worth, other people's worth, and that they too can make a positive impact. To demonstrate this, we have named each of our garments after the people who have supported our launch who have aligned themselves with our vision, such as our models, Fashion Show Coordinator and Makeup Artist Bianca Moors, family members and friends.
With the launch of our new website, March 1, 2019, customers will be able to enjoy 20% off of our all natural garments.

We Are Worthy is also preparing to release a follow up clothing line of which will use GOTS certified organic cotton and GOTS certified organic vegetable dyes.

These conversations flow effortlessly between us and our customers as we engage with them about our products and they engage with us eager to learn more.
