STC is a smoothly run family business and has around 500 employees, who all have access to healthcare and social benefits, such as retirement funds. Ipshita, daughter of one of the founders, stepped into her father’s business around 8 years ago and is now managing the complete O My Bag department.
We started working with STC at the end of 2014. Today, they are responsible for the production of a big part of our collection, and even have a production line just for our Beck's Bumbag.
O My Bag was the first brand for which STC produced a sustainable leather line. STC is partnering with local NGO's to train young women to become leather professionals, so that they can hire more and more skilled women in their factory. To reduce their environmental impact, solar panels provide all the energy for the factory during the day. STC is a true frontrunner in the Kolkata leather complex, and always looking for ways to innovate and improve their production process.
"We would love to have as
many women as possible
at the factory."
