Preparing for Partnerships in the United States

by Katie Martinez |

We've been thinking a lot lately about how to get creative with being able to make beautiful clothing that is also matching a price that most are able to pay. This has been a challenge for us since we make small quantities and have a small profit margin. Our primary goal is to employ more women and see bright futures ahead. We are going to try more with American women who are in need of an opportunity. At Restore in NYC, Katie teaches weekly sewing classes to help build skills and confidence. Wings of Refuge in Iowa is teaching their resident to sew the Penelope tank to arrive in July. The Nepali Rescue Project is sewing up super cute summer dresses right now - we're hoping you'll love so much we'll have no choice but to design more dresses.
