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 dignitifed job, the chances she’ll be trafficked again are slim-to-none.
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.
FIGHTING HUMAN TRAFFICKING
Tackling poverty in Nepal through job creation for survivors and those at risk.
Ramesh has been rescuing and restoring thousands from trafficking in Nepal and India. When Katie met him in 2011, she had to join his vision to see every survivor receive a job opportunity.
The waiting list for sewing jobs is about 300 women, but every purchase gets us closer to that!
Elegantees aims to fight human trafficking through employment opportunities. All our products are made ethically, and most are made by women who have overcome. We continually reinvest our sales into providing more jobs.
