From organic cotton to sewing machines to schools, retirement homes, orphanages, and medical centers — that's only part of the life-changing span of Assisi Garments. 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 people's health, 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.
Super comfortable! Fits well in all the right places and hide what you don't want to show off.
These are perfect little packable dresses, very flattering- and may also be worn as skirts- I have two each of blue and berry, and everyone loves them!
I love these dresses. so comfortable. I bought one a year ago and should of bought more at that time. So glad they were featured again. LOVE IT!
Bought the berry color and will by other colors when on sale again. I wear this as a dress and it is so comfortable.
This is a great item! I tried it on and can't wait to wear it! Wearing it as a dress is figure flattering even for someone short and curvy-I plan to order another color.
