Made of organic cotton by a non-profit employment program in the Tamil Nadu region of India. Run by an order of Franciscan Nuns, the sisters employ and care for 120 young women who are handicapped and/or economically disadvantaged. The nuns provide employment training and support, along with food and accommodations. The group also supports 300 local organic farmers in the Maharastra area. Each garment is lovingly produced from seed to sewing machine. Good for the environment, good for you!
Assisi Garments was Founded by Franciscan nuns in 1994 to create a livelihood for the deaf community. Assisi Garments now offers approximately 300 underprivileged women and nearly 120 physically challenged people in southern India jobs with fair trade wages, health care, and other benefits.
Profits are used to care for abandoned leprosy survivors, treat cancer patients in its hospital that accommodates up to 600 patients, run a boarding school for almost 50 blind children, and another boarding school for 200 deaf children, plus build a clinic for HIV/AIDs care.
With a deep concern for the environment and the health of mankind, they use only organic cotton grown and picked by hundreds of certified fair trade organic farmers in Maharashtra India for their clothing. Conventionally grown cotton uses more pesticides than any other crop — almost a third of a pound of pesticides and fertilizers go into a simple T-shirt. They recognized that pesticides cause health problems for farmers in India, so the Assisi Sisters and Assisi Garments support the fight against cancer by endorsing organic cotton production, and by treating people people their cancer clinics and hospital wards.

I bought the Berry color. Everything about this top is exactly as described and pictured. Berry is very vibrant and will go with many things in my closet from pants to dresses. This is a versatile top to wear alone or over another top or dress. It fits perfectly, although I read other reviews saying it runs small so I sized up to a Large ( my usual size is medium). Glad I did. The large fits well. I'm a slim 5' 8" tall, 145 lbs. The fabric is nice but thin so it will not be too warm. It's made very well and I am glad it has long sleeves. Highly recommend!
I bought this in both berry and blue and I'm so happy I did. The colors are amazing and look great with a white or black tank underneath, I love the length of the 3/4 sleeves and the weight of the material that is slightly thick and stretchy but also kind of structured. I ordered a size large based on previous reviews and I would say they were right to order up which is usually not the case. For reference I am 150 lbs with size 36d chest so normally a solid medium in most everything. The wrap tie (so cute) is adjustable so it probably is better to size up since the wrap can be tightened as needed.
Ordered a small in blue (5’3” 120 lbs) and love it so much I came back for the berry color. I also purchased a dress which is not fitted and this jacket matches perfect and will give a silhouette to the dress. Definitely recommend.
It's so nice that you found two garments that work so well together. It sounds like a lovely outfit!
