Company Summary

Moral Fibers employs artists living in poverty: they send paintings, attend school, and volunteer for community service. Our web application is used to edit these paintings onto clothing. These users connect with the painter through a monthly creative design competition featuring a cash prize for both creators. The top voted clothing mockups are produced in limited quantities and sold through our website.
