The Brand Story:

Dorsu is a Cambodian based label that creates limited edition versatile basics, carefully crafted in soft remnant cotton jersey. Dorsu doesn't conform to the conventional fast-fashion calendar that's influenced by temporary trends, instead designing quality clothes that don't go out of style, so that you can wear your pieces for years to come. 

Dorsu highly values ethically practices, honesty and transparency when it comes to their label. All staff are offered - 

  • A 9-hour workday that includes a 1-hour lunch and two 15 minute breaks.
  • Entry-level wages that exceed the Cambodian garment industry's legal minimum by 30%. 
  • Monthly performance-based bonuses.
  • A 5-day work week. (Cambodia typically has a 6-day work week), with an optional 6th day at overtime rates.
  • Accrued annual leave plus paid national holidays.
  • Illness & personal leave, as well as maternity and paternity leave.
  • Annual review of permanent contracts.
  • Required on-the-job safety training and equipment maintenance.

Each garment is created in-house from start to finish using remnant fabric. Remnant fabric (also known as "deadstock" or "surplus") is unused and unwanted leftover rolls of cloth in its original condition. 

Dorsu explains - "Due to the nature of sourcing factory remnants, we can't guarantee consistency in the fabric blends. Consequently, we burn-test every fabric we buy to ensure it has very little or no synthetic fibres. We pre-wash a sample of every new fabric, testing for colour fastness and shrinkage.

We know that using factory remnants has limitations. We know we can’t trace the true origins of our material. But, we are doing what we can, within the context in which we work. Cambodia doesn't have cotton mills or weaving facilities so, we are limited by access. As a small brand, we experience financial barriers of meeting minimum order quantities of suppliers outside of Cambodia and then importing fabric into the country. We are acutely aware of our impact on the local economy, and we choose to place our money where it has the most significant impact."

End of Life:

When a garment has reached the end of it’s life and can no longer be worn, mended, swapped, gifted, donated or upcycled, we recommend consulting your local council to find your nearest textile recycling scheme. 

 

Made ethically in Cambodia 

Dorsu explains - "Inside Dorsu's walls are the sounds of buzzing machinery and friendly chatter on the production floor. Once we've designed, sourced, and sampled our clothing, we deliver our patterns just a few metres away to the cutting table and production floor. Our team receive substantial training in the use and maintenance of our industrial machinery."
