YOUR PURCHASE IS IMPACTFUL
Did you know that sourcing girls for sex trafficking is a big industry in Nepal?
Human traffickers visit impoverished villages to find a family to deceive. They may claim they have a job overseas, and parents agree to it. Perhaps the eldest daughter may then help the youngest siblings to have a meal.
The traffickers travel with victims to the Nepal-India border. Once in India, they are sold into brothels and forced to serve dozens of men per day.
How does our for-profit fashion company have any connection to fighting trafficking? Our factory provides fair-wages to survivors. With a dignified job, the chances she’ll be trafficked again are slim-to-none.
Wear Elegantees with confidence, knowing that the woman who made it was paid a fair wage and treated with dignity.
FROM THE FOUNDER
WHY I CREATED ELEGANTEES
Could I wear tees that are stylish and comfortable? I wanted to. The 'elegant tee' was born in 2010.
Elegantees is for the woman who seeks to find a balance between fashion and real life.
True beauty is being clothed in strength and dignity. When a woman takes care of herself, and others with kindness, she's at the height of beauty. I love that I can work, run errands comfortably, and make my kids laugh while wearing these clothes. I feel empowered and beautiful all day.
