The Loyal Workshop was founded to provide an opportunity for freedom. Modern day slavery is a phenomenon that we are not prepared to be apathetic about. We believe that another world is possible; one where sex slavery is relegated to the history books. It’s a brazen dream but we’re putting it into action in one city, in one red-light community, with one woman at a time.
We believe that business can be a tool to bring freedom to those trapped in slavery. Our business IS about freedom. Every product we create is part of a woman’s freedom journey.
Thanks for your support.
We are smack-dab in the middle of bustling Kolkata, in an area called Bowbazar. Our workshop is perched on the edge of the second largest red-light area in Kolkata, where an estimated 1500-2000 women are still trapped in the sex trade.

Our foreign staff
Founders, Paul and Sarah Beisly launched their little family into the madness of Kolkata and dreamt of a new business that could help bring new hope to women trapped in the sex-trade. That dream is now taking shape.
Some other Kiwis were inspired by the vision of freedom for women trapped in the sex trade. The list is getting long but includes: Harry, Mandy, Kay, Jake, Meg, Andy, Lou, Nathan, Rosey, Joel and Lizzie.
We also have a big support crew collaborating on this initiative with us. Special thanks to Russell, Andriano and Matt.
