International Women’s Day: Continuing to help women through 2021 image

Last week we received a donation of 200 organic t-shirts from Mantis World.  These will be used as a base layer under a suit, shirt or blouse, completing an interview outfit enabling a woman to feel her best at a crucial part of her life.

We’re so pleased to have partnered with Clothes2order, an online destination for branded clothing and workwear.  Similarly, as with Smart Works, Clothes2order understand the importance of sustainable practices and work with some fantastic sustainable brands to produce garments, such as Mantis.  For 20 years Mantis have championed equality and are proud to be headed up by a female CEO and a majority female team.

“When I founded Mantis World in 2000, I never imagined that 21 years later we would still be the only promo-wear brand that is owned by women. Women make up the majority of our team, including senior management, and also make up the majority of the workers in our factories around the world. I’ve had the privilege and pleasure of working alongside so many wise, talented and dedicated women and this IWD we acknowledge the often unsung effort they make.  We are always available to “pay it forward” – helping women succeed and gain the confidence to fulfil their true potential.” Prama Bhardwaj, Founder of Mantis World

From all the Smart Works Greater Manchester team, thank you for your support Clothes2order and Mantis.
