Scott Leeder founded Tompkins Point Apparel following his position as the CFO of a farmer-owned Fair Trade and organic cotton trading company based in Hyderabad, India.
While Scott's experience in India was amazing, he learned about how difficult life is for farmers in one of the poorest areas of the world. Most of the farmers in this region earn the equivalent of $1 per day - they are poor, uneducated, often illiterate, and frequently exploited.
As Scott learned about these farmers, he began to understand the challenges they faced and ultimately developed an innovative business model for a clothing brand that would improve farmers’ lives by taking a creative approach to producing the products we consume regularly. Tompkins Point Apparel was born.
As part of their commitment to improving the lives of the farmers and factory workers that produce their clothing, Tompkins Point donates 25% of their profits to the communities that make their clothing. These contributions are in excess of all Fair Trade benefits and premiums, and is completely separate from the contributions that Shopping for a Change makes to its artisan communities.
