Introducing our Namelyco India Family
Namelyco is privileged to work with an incredible group of people around the globe to bring our products to market. When we first meet our knitwear factory 5 years ago they were a little skeptical of these two girls from Melbourne who had a dream to create a brand that made individual personalised product. Something they had never done before but loved a challenge! After a long weekend in India they jumped on board and have stuck with us for the past 5 years. Growing, investing, learning and challenging each other along the way we are proud of how far we and our factory have come. Due to that growth a lot of young women and men now have stable jobs that give them reliable income. On our recent trip to India we stat down with some of these beautiful people to find out a little more about them.
