Meet our Honduran Factory!
We love meeting our makers, but we wanted to tell you a little bit more about the factory they work in. ELCATEX Group leads the industry with putting people first, as well as being innovative and sustainable at the same time. Did you know that all of their energy comes from renewable technologies, which includes biomass, biogas and solar. How sweet is that?
Let's see what other cool things they do!

Some of the free clinics they offer:
