As a woman owned apparel company established in 2016, women empowerment is at the core of the Gaber Wear brand. 👏🏾
With an 85% female staff, the company focuses on empowering women at all levels — from the women who sew their products to the women in management roles to the women who express themselves via their products. Gaber Wear specializes in providing customized and tailored garments to its customers and also produces reusable fabric facemasks for the public and PPE for healthcare workers.
