The brand focuses on providing women with the skills needed to integrate back into society and create sustainable livelihoods.

According to the brand’s website, the owners were inspired to start The Beulah Trust after working in an aftercare home for sex trafficking victims in Delhi, India, where they realised the power of employment in helping victims live a self-sufficient life.

“Our philosophy is that each and every product will support and empower vulnerable women; providing them with rehabilitation and employment opportunities that make a world of difference,” Beulah co-founder Natasha Rufus Isaacs wrote in a statement provided to INSIDER. “Our designs and collections are guided by the traditional skills specialist to the women and regions we wish to support.”
