Cali, Colombia | Since 2011
Location is important. So is supporting our community. When starting Peixoto, Mauricio Esquenazi knew he wanted to create employment opportunities in his hometown of Cali, Colombia. Cali became the heart of our business and home to our production factory. There, we have created an environment of skilled workers who are encouraged to share their knowledge and expertise. From the seamstress to the head designer, each employee has a valued voice at Peixoto. We’re proud to say that after ten years in business, most of our team remains the same, advancing their careers and creating a workplace they call home.
Take Care of Our Own
We strive to create ethical working conditions and relationshipswith every stakeholder in our supply chain. By owning our factoryin Colombia, we are able to ensure a safe and healthy work environment and competitive wages for our employees. Peixoto employee benefits include: Two weeks of paid vacation, health and retirement benefits, subsidized transportation, 40-hourwork week, plus paid overtime and bonuses
Operate with Integrity
At Peixoto, we believe a company is only as good as its people. In order to be successful and provide our customers with the best possible experience, we need our employees to be happy and feel fulfilled. As such, we’re committed to providing all employees at our Cali factory with economic opportunities that help improve life for their families and community. Many of our employees have been with us for more than ten years. Some have used the skills they learned at Peixoto to open their own businesses. We are so proud of their accomplishments and support their business endeavors by using them as suppliers when outsourced work is needed.
Textile waste is one of the largest contributors to landfill waste globally. At Peixoto, we create smaller batches of our products in order to conserve energy and water resources and reduce waste. We have a cut-to-order philosophy, producing only products that our retail partners plan to sell. We are committed to providing a high-quality product for our customers while simultaneously reducing our resource impact.
Make Quality Attainable
From the beginning, we’ve focused on creating pieces that are highin quality and value. In order to offer our customers quality and affordability, we reduce our manufacturing costs by owning our own factory, cutting out the middleman and passing along the cost savings to our customers.
