According to a 2018 Fashion United report, fashion start-up Thr3efold, which aims to connect fashion brands to ethical factories around the world, has launched a crowdfunding campaign with iFundWomen to seek funding to help develop the technology platform.

Thr3efold, with its “be more ethical and sustainable” message, is looking to raise 18,000 US dollars by August 15, to fund the development of the beta version of the platform so that the start-up can start testing, according to a 2018 Fashion United report.

Founder Jessica Kelly describes the platform as a marriage of Airbnb and PLM software, with aims to present a “clean marketplace interface” that will streamline the process of cherry-picking ethical factories for fashion brands, “supported by a two-sided review process to provide insight into their working relationship and quality,” the company noted.

Kelly spent almost a decade in the fashion industry working across public relations, events, sales, and marketing for various brands in New York City, such as Alexander Wang, Oscar de la Renta, Tory Burch and Tommy Hilfiger, according to a 2018 Women’s Wear Daily report.

Kelly told Women’s Wear Daily in a 2018 report, she was inspired to create Thr3efold subsequent to returning from meaningful travel experiences abroad: “[After] a life-changing trip to Zimbabwe, I fell in love with the people and was heartbroken by the injustice they suffered. I was empowered to return and find a way to bring sustainable employment to people in need around the world through fashion.” Kelly added that her platform helps brands find ethical factories to work with, “who account for people and planet as well as product in our hidden, ambiguous, confusing, and sometimes even shady supply chains.” She launched Thr3efold in 2016 upon realizing “the impact her career was having on people and planet, and after encountering incredible factories,” according to the company.

I tend to focus my attention outwards and am drawn to the external world of action. I learn a lot about the world through experience. Focusing on what I have seen, heard, or touched, gives me the ability to develop a practical and realistic outlook on the world. Making decisions based on impersonal criteria like principles and logic is very important to me.I accept responsibility for my actions. When I succeed, I accept the satisfaction of the achievement, and if I do fail at something, I learn from it and do better next time. I feel confident in my abilities and am accepting of myself. I have good time management skills. I am able to fit the most important things in life into my schedule. I have a strong sense of goal commitment.
