Our Founders

Origin was founded by Fo Hussain after spending many years sourcing suppliers and materials around the world and experiencing first hand how difficult it is for small businesses to discover innovation and insight into their supply chains. During the early days she met Co-Founder Beatrice Lafon and between them, they have over 50 years of experience in fashion and manufacturing.

Fo and Bea are driven by their passion to empower small and growing businesses to rethink how they make and sell products so that traceability and transparency stay at the forefront of fashion.

Our mission is simple, accelerate transparency and traceability with responsible tech to enable products of today to become the resources of tomorrow.
