Havan Clothing

Do you know how many T-shirts you currently own? And how many T-shirts you purchase every year?

 

 

Part of our sales proceeds goes back to the 27 underprivileged children from shelter homes. We run weekly classes with them and their artwork inspires every single one of Havan’s designs. This is why when you buy from Havan, you are supporting the children in our program.

 

 


My Story

I believe that we can make a significant difference in this society

I never would have guessed that that CSR event would change the course of my career.

Hi, I’m Ivan, co-founder of Havan Clothing.

2 years ago, I left my mundane 9 to 5 job in finance to start Havan Clothing with my lovely wife, Hany. That’s right, Hany + Ivan = Havan, an enterprise that represents our devotion to focus on underprivileged children in shelter homes.

 

 

My wife, Hany, who is a professional counsellor, used to share stories with me about receiving gifts from her students. I see these gifts as a form of appreciation from the kids for her impactful companionship, support, encouragement and trust.

I used to be envious and in awe of my wife’s profession because her job directly affects the lives of others for the better. It was a stark contrast to my corporate job that dealt with numbers, profits and various kinds of percentages. I realised that all this data doesn’t impact me as much at the end of the day.

 


 

It was during a CSR event in Sentul back in 2015 that was organized by my previous employer where I truly found my life’s goal when I visited a shelter home. I remember being overjoyed that I finally had an opportunity to make a positive impact on others, so I got inspired and fully committed to the preparation of this event. I remember it was a very joyful and unforgettable day for me, spending time with the kids and making beautiful memories together.

 

 

Much of my excitement for the event was met with an unexpected realisation. Hany shared with me that these types of events can be perceived as a type of abandonment in disguise - helpful and good-hearted strangers who visit you once and eventually go home once the event ends, making no further contact afterwards even if beautiful memories were made with them.

As it turns out, our good intentions were actually a form of pain to them. I was shocked by this realisation, but I was more upset than anything. After much self-reflection where I believe these CSR events should be more of an on-going journey rather than a one-off experience, I set out on a mission to engage with my employer at the time to have these occurrences with the shelter home on a continuous engagement basis through more CSR events. But as you can guess, I was met with zero success.

 

 

When I brought this up with Hany, she suggested, “Why don’t we do it ourselves?”.

We put together a series of EQ focus classes that would run for a minimum of 4 months. Every friday, Hany returned to the shelter home to teach 8 children the ways to cope with their various emotions.

 

 

During these EQ classes, we realised that these kids had very low self-confidence. When we ran activities, most of them avoided eye contact with everyone and were timid. They didn’t want to speak up nor participate due to the fear of making mistakes.

 

 

We were pleased to see their improvement in the 4 months of EQ lessons. We realised that through continuous guidance, it is possible for them to change for the better.

For example, we noticed improvements in their ability to speak up and be more open to sharing their thoughts and emotions. More importantly, there’s confidence shining through their eyes.

It was the same time when we discovered an online article from The Star that states the following:

- Underprivileged children from shelter homes have the tendency to be 10 times more likely to pursue sex work when they grow up.

- They are 40 times more likely to commit crimes.

- They are 500 times more likely to consider suicide. 

All these findings stemmed from the self-confidence issues, the inability to trust themselves as well as from lacking guidance and companionship. The traits were consistent with our observations at the shelter home.

We were sad when our 4 months of volunteering came to an end. We understood that if we wanted to continue with this, we would need to pursue another path due to everyday life’s realities.

 


My Project: Havan Clothing

Fashion with A Purpose: The social enterprise of growing children’s confidence, one T-shirt at a time.

To continue our efforts, we decided to start a social enterprise.

We opted to sell products that had to meet 3 Havan requirements:

- Unique

- Association with children from shelter homes

- Direct correlation between the children and the products

After much thought, we found the answer that we were looking for: Children’s unique artwork on high-quality T-shirts.

 

 

In March of 2017, we launched our first T-shirt design. It was a small cat designed by 7-year-old AL. We loved it, but did others?

We sent out a round of questionnaires to understand what our friends and family thought of the project, as well as to invite those who were interested in Havan. We received more than 250 replies and it was beyond our expectations. This gave us the confidence boost that we needed to start Havan Clothing.

After that, I quit my financial management job and dove wholeheartedly into Havan Clothing.

 

 

High-quality cotton T-shirts powered by children’s unlimited creativity and hope.

12-year-old DN is one of the “designers”. Back then, his dream was to be a lorry driver, now he dreams of representing Malaysia in international cycling tournaments. He documented this in his drawings. We were very moved to see the positive change in him of being more confident and how his dreams have grown!

 

 

We printed DN’s artwork on T-shirts and it became one of Havan’s most celebrated designs. When DN sees his work being worn and bought by adults, he feels proud. And this is what we hope to see.

 

 

A smooth and silky feel to the touch is one of the main characteristics of Havan’s high-quality cotton T-shirts. These T-shirts are made out of 95% luxury cotton and 5% elastic spandex blended fabric. The fabric maintains breathability and soft features of pure cotton. It does not crease or wrinkle easily, which is often associated with pure cotton. On top of that, the shirts are double-stitched - a technique that makes clothing hold its shape longer.

 

 

Heartfelt praise from Havan’s customers revolves around the children’s childlike innocence, clothing that feels silky and smooth on the skin, breathable, does not wrinkle easily, extremely comfortable to wear and clothing that stays in shape.

 

 

Since the founding of the company, we have sold almost 3,000 T-shirts and have launched 16 designs. We direct 8% - 15% of the revenue towards the teaching efforts at the shelter home, which funds for teaching materials, syllabus research, staff training and wage, outdoor education activities and more. At the moment, we have increased it to 2 shelter homes. The number of children benefiting from this has increased from eight to 28 children.

In these 4 years, we have established more than 128 lessons and activities, over a total of 2,500 hours. Along the way, we have seen lots of positive outcomes such as the success stories with the children, continuous customers’ support and generous exposure by all major media channels. All of these have allowed us to move to the next bigger stages.


Why Crowdfunding

Improving the quality - Better-value T-shirts, higher value for money

We plan to upgrade our T-shirts’ fabric to Peruvian Pima Cotton and Tencel™. Peruvian Pima Cotton, also known as an exceptional fibre cotton, is from Peru. The cotton is matured under an extended period of sun exposure, which is why the cotton fibres are longer than regular cotton.

It’s of extraordinary quality - a difference that your skin can feel. And it is only one-third of the world’s cotton production so far.

 

 

Tencel™ combines the technology of man-made fibres and natural fibres - cotton comfort, skin-friendly and highly absorbent. It has Polyester’s elasticity and strength, wool’s softness; hemp fibre’s cooling effect and silk’s smoothness. Tencel™ is made out of 100% plant fibre and is widely known to be an environmentally friendly fibre due to its ecological manufacturing process.

 

 

Both Peruvian Pima Cotton and Tencel™ fabrics are being used by high-end brands such as AX, CKand Laxxxte which sells at an exorbitant price range of RM350 to RM400.

However, at Havan, by cutting off the absurd marked-up prices of high-end brands, these high-quality T-shirts are actually possible to be purchased at a reasonable price.

At the same time, we plan to expand our product line up. Besides launching more T-shirt styles, we are preparing to introduce shirts, socks, pants, bags and more, to meet the ever growing consumers’ needs. There’s something for everyone in Havan.

We are looking to grow our team to fully expand Havan Clothing and start a new chapter with us.

Finally, we hope to find more like-minded partners to grow with Havan Clothing, which is to benefit more children from shelter homes in our EQ programmes. In the next 5 years, we aim to increase our reach to 1,000 children from shelter homes who will benefit from our efforts.

你算过吗?你买过多少件T恤?

 

 

过去3年,我们用卖T恤的钱,陪伴了27名儿童之家的孩子。每周一天,Hany都会到儿童之家一趟,陪伴他们,一起学习、一起游戏。

而我们卖出的每一件T恤,都与这群孩子有关。

T恤上的每一个图案,都是他们的作品。

 

 


我的自述

用生命影响生命

我从来没有想过,那场CSR活动,就此改写了我的事业轨迹。

我是Ivan,Havan Clothing的联合创办人。2年前,我辞去财务经理的高新工作,与妻子Hany成立了Havan Clothing。是的,Hany+Ivan=Havan,一家结合我们心血的社企、一家关注儿童庇护所里孩童的社企。

 

 

Hany是一名注册辅导师。在我还是一名白领时,经常在共车下班的路上,听她说起今天又收到了某某学生的礼物。那些小礼物,不外都在感谢她的陪伴、支持、鼓励和信任。

我满心羡慕。

因为她从事的是一份能够直接影响生命的工作。

 

 

反观我的工作,数字、盈利、各种百分比……然后呢?

2015年年底,公司打算到位于Sentul的儿童之家进行CSR的活动。我非常高兴,因为终于获得了一次“可以影响生命的机会”。我投入了整个筹备工作。活动当天,我和儿童之家的小朋友一起玩游戏、弹吉他,非常快乐。

 

 

回到家后,我迫不及待和Hany分享喜悦,却换来了一个意料之外的结果。

Hany告诉我,这是种变相抛弃——去了一次,之后便消失无踪。

原来,我们的好意竟是一种伤害。

我很震惊,更多的是难受。左思右想,我向公司提出了持续到儿童之家进行CSR活动的建议,但没有被采纳。

 

 

再和Hany聊起这件事时,“不如我们自己做吧”,她提议。

我们设计了为期4个月的EQ管理课程,每个星期五,Hany都会回到那所儿童之家,与8名小朋友互动,教导他们如何应对自己的各种情绪。

 

 

在与他们互动的过程中,我们发现他们的自信近乎为零——

画自画像时,想要一把尺来画出自己的身体和脚;

沟通时不敢直视你的眼睛;

不敢参与活动,因为害怕犯错……

 

 

这4个月的活动下来,我们欣喜地看见了他们的进步。原来持续的陪伴,是可以让他们改变的——

表达能力变好了;

懂得用更多词汇来表达自己的情绪;

更重要的是,他们的眼神有了自信的光芒。

与此同时,我们发现了一份研究报告:

儿童之家的孩子长大后成为性工作者的倾向比一般人高10倍;

犯罪倾向为一般人的40倍;

而自杀倾向则是500倍。

这一切,源于对自己的不自信,缺乏引导和陪伴。

这个结果,与我们的观察不谋而合。

4个月的志愿工作正好到期,我们不舍停止;但日常生活的开销与生活压力,让我们清楚地知道,若想要继续让更多的孩子受惠,就得另寻一条路。

 


我的项目

社会企业 让孩子们的自信与我们的陪伴事业共同发光

为了继续这份志愿工作,我们决定经营社会企业。

我们打算卖产品,且这个产品必须符合以下3个条件:

- 有特点

- 与这群孩子有关

- 孩子们可以直观地看到产品与自己的关系

几经讨论,我们找到了答案:印有孩子们作品的高品质T恤。

 

 

2017年3月,我们推出了我们的第一款T恤。T恤上的小猫,是7岁AL的作品。我们非常喜欢,但其他人呢?
 

我们做了一轮问卷调查,想了解身边亲友对这个项目的看法,并请有益支持的他们,给予回复。出乎意料的,我们收到了超过250个回复,这让我们信心大增。

2017年年中,我辞去了财务经理的工作,全心投入到Havan Clothing当中。

 

 

童心与希望无限的高品棉T

12岁的DN是其中一款T恤的设计者,他曾经的梦想是当一名罗里司机。现在,他的愿望是代表马来西亚,参加世界级的自行车骑行大赛。

他用画笔记录了这个梦想。

我们喜见他的变化——更自信了、梦想也变大了!

 

 

我们把DN的作品印在了T 恤上,成了Havan最受欢迎的设计之一。

看到自己的作品穿在了其他人身上,DN非常自豪;而这,正是我们所期待的。

 

 

手感顺滑,是Havan 高品棉T 的一大特色。T恤以95%好棉与5%的弹性氨纶混纺而成。这不但保留了纯棉T恤的特性——透气、柔软,也在最大程度上减少了纯棉T 容易变形的痛点。此外,衣服以双线缝制,让衣服“型”更持久。

 

 

孩子们的童心画作、衣服亲肤柔顺、清爽透气、富有弹性、穿着舒适、不易变形,都是客户们对Havan 高品棉T的衷心评价。

 

 

成立至今,我们卖出了近3000件T恤,推出了16款设计。

我们将销售额的8%——15%,投入到儿童之家的志愿活动中,费用涵盖了教具、课程研发、师资培训与薪资、户外教学活动等。

目前,受惠的儿童之家已增加到了2 所,受惠儿童也从原来的8 人,增至27 人。这4 年来,我们共开设了超过128 门课程与活动,总时长超过2500 个小时。

一路走来,孩子们的成长、客户的支持、各大媒体的报导,都让我们迈出更自信的下一步。


为何发起

品质升级 给你物超所值的高品棉T

我们计划升级T恤的布料——使用匹马棉(Peruvian Pima Cotton)及天丝纤维(Tencel TM)。

匹马棉也称极品特长纤维棉,源自秘鲁。因日照时间长,棉的成熟度高,所以棉纤维比一般棉更长,手感极好,只占全世界棉总产量的百分之三。

 

 

而天丝纤维结合了人造纤维与天然纤维的优点——具有棉的舒适性、亲肤性、吸湿性;聚酯纤维的弹性与强度;毛织物的柔软;麻织物的凉爽及丝织品的平滑触感。

天丝纤维由100%植物纤维制成,加上环保的制造流程,是公认的环境友善纤维。

 

 

匹马棉及天丝纤维是Armani Exchange、Calvin Klein、Lacoste 等高级品牌T 恤所采用的布料,平均要价RM350-RM400。

而在Havan,除去了大牌高昂的品牌费用,如此优质的T 恤其实能以更合算的价格购得。

同时,我们计划扩大产品线、增加产品品类。除了推出更多的T 恤款式,我们正筹备推出衬
衫、袜子、裤子、背包等,好让更多消费者,能在Havan 找到好面料精工艺、且适合他们的产品。

再来,我们需要壮大我们的团队,全面拓展Havan Clothing 的网络营销事业,与我们共创新篇章。

最后,我们希望找到更多志同道合的伙伴,和我们一起壮大Havan Clothing 的事业与志业,让更多儿童之家的孩子,能从我们的课程中受惠,从而拥抱幸福的人生。

未来5 年,期许能让1000 名儿童之家的孩子,从我们的活动中受惠。
