Faces Apparel's vision is to keep families together that are caught in a cycle of poverty due to a lack of resources and jobs in their own community. In order to help these families, Faces Apparel came up with the concept of mobile factories, shipping containers converted into fair-wage factories that can be placed in areas accessible to those who would normally have to travel long distances for work. The factory depicted in this video is merely a prototype which was built a few years ago to test the concept. A fully functioning mobile factory would have windows, air ventilation, clean walls, and plenty of light for each worker. This concept came out of Michael's (the founder of Faces Apparel) time getting to know the people working in the factories. When asked to share their needs so many of them said they wished to be with their families but had no other way of having a means to live unless they left their homes in search of work in faraway cities. Michael knew that there had to be some other way, and that's how Faces Apparel and the mobile factory concept came to be.
