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.
Well made and goes with anything. Fits perfectly! I am 5'2"- 110lbs. I wish they also still had the purple in small. I would get another one. Black is nice, goes with everything so I am very pleased.
Really love this! Fits well and made from soft, quality cotton. Holds it's shape after washing and doesn't need ironing__
I love it!
Love this cardigan. Fits well, looks good, and is now a staple in my wardrobe.
I don't usually purchase new items for myself but made the exception and am so happy with the purchase. I bought the extra large in black. It has a lovely drape effect (covering my 37" waist). Accurate pictures, sizing and fast delivery internationally. What a great place to shop!!
