COLLABORATIONS and PROJECTS
EkoDoku is a social enterprise focused on production, research, solidarity and activity, working on social, economic and ecological benefit by bringing together theory and practice under the roof of a cooperative. By developing a production model that blends tradition and innovation in the field of textiles, we are an enterprise that conducts research and development studies as well as trade and also operates by establishing collaborations. As a social enterprise that does not distribute dividends as emphasized in our articles of association, empowering vulnerable groups, especially women and youth, socio-economically, creating income sources for these groups, bringing tradition and the future together in the present, we are a social enterprise that blends issues such as circular economy, responsible production-consumption, fair trade, green growth, nature and human-friendly production, slow fashion, sustainable textiles, respect for the life cycle, social benefit.
The goal of every good and service we produce is primarily social and environmental benefit. At the same time, it makes a difference with its effective income model for the active participation of disadvantaged individuals in the labor force. This difference is made by making "workers" both service providers and beneficiaries, and thus making them the main stakeholders. We actively participate in networking activities, cooperative meetings, workshops and conferences to build the capacity of social solidarity economy components and cooperatives in particular. Some of the projects in which we are active stakeholders or beneficiaries for social good:
