Hello and welcome!
Alexandria Main is for Glama Pusses who want gorgeous loungewear to take them from pool lounge to cocktail lounge: silk caftans that shimmer and float when you walk, and timeless sleepwear made from gauzy cotton in the classic style of a man’s shirt and a pair of boxer shorts.
Alexandria Main (named after the beaches of Alexandria Bay and Main Beach at Noosa in Australia), was set up as a 'fashion with purpose' project. I've chosen to work in Cambodia because the legacy of the terrible Pol Pot regime left the country with one of the greatest needs for income. I've sought out production partners who care about their sewers and weavers, and who provide fair wages, training and a working environment that enriches their lives. This matters because nothing is truly beautiful if it comes at the expense of another person.
10% of all Alexandria Main profits are donated to an organisation that exists to improve the lives of women and children in Cambodia. At checkout you choose where you would like to spread the love. There are three listed:
- Human and Hope Association, who empower their community in Siem Reap, Cambodia, through projects focused on education, community development and vocational training.
- Cambodian Children's Fund Child Protection Unit works to bring child abusers to justice and protect those who can't protect themselves.
- Friends International is a social enterprise with a mission to empower Cambodian children
Take a peek, see which one speaks to your heart and click away.
Nothing happens as a solo venture. These are the incredible people in Cambodia who make all the pretty clothes for Alexandria Main. Check them out and look them up:
