about OUR PARTNERS
We work with one of the leading Organic Garments manufacturers in Tirupur, India. Founded by the St.Francis sisters in 1994. Our partners have been recognised as one of the first companies in India to use organic cotton garment manufacturing.
Not only at the forefront of organic cotton production they also have an ongoing ‘social commitment’ to the underprivileged and the disabled. The Sister’s continue their mission in a large variety of social work including, leprosy eradication, helping the deaf and dumb, starting schools, funding orphanages, cancer treatment hospitals, care for the elderly, rehabilitation centre for AIDS patients and taking care of mentally and physically challenged people in the community. Their commitment to helping the underprivileged is truly inspiring.
In Kerala and Tamil Nadu, during their school education, the Sisters learned tailoring as a vocational course. This training gave them greater opportunities to make a living and ultimately enabled the sisters to establish their own garment factory, where they, in turn, train others.
All profits are utilised for the welfare of women and other social activities, orphanages, cancer patients, old age homes and schools.
We are proud to work with a company that is Fairtrade® Certified and produces exclusively GOTS Certified 100% organic cotton garments.
