Ricefield Collective

Ricefield Collective is an ethical fashion start-up based in Ithaca, New York and Ifugao, in the Philippines. Producing hand knitted accessories with locally sourced natural fibers, they feature innovative designs inspired by the landscape of Ifugao. Knitted by the indigenous women from the mountains of the Philippines, Ricefield Collective help empower their knitters and sustain their way of life on the Banaue Rice Terraces. Employing their knitters directly, Ricefield Collective ensure they receive a sustainable wage, earning one and a half to two times more than the day rate for farm labor in the area.

Ricefield Collective operated from 2011 until January 2015.
