Under The Nile
Under the Nile was set up by Janice Masoud after she moved to Egypt. Under the Nile sources its organic cloth from Sekem, a separate company which was set up to produce healthy and organic crops including cotton. Janice knew that she only wanted to work with a company who shared her ethical philosophy and she finally found this in Sekem, a company in Egypt whose care for people and for the environment both impressed and inspired them. They formed a partnership and lasting friendship, and to this day all Under the Nile products are sourced solely from Sekem. The Sekem Development Foundation runs a school, a medical centre, a vocational training centre, various programs for socially disadvantaged children and several research and training programmes.
