Assisi Garments is based in South India. Assisi Garments makes many of People Tree’s most popular pieces in soft organic and Fairtrade certified cotton, from wrap dresses to leggings to tees.
Assisi Garments buys organic cotton that is Fairtrade and GOTS certified certified in India and then transforms the cotton fibre into beautiful fabric and handmade garments.
The close partnership between People Tree and Assisi Garments meant that ours was the first supply chain entirely in the developing world to achieve the Soil Association Global Organic Textile Standards mark.
Assisi Garments is one of the first social businesses that People Tree worked with. Set up by Franciscan nuns, it provides training and employment for deaf, mute and economically disadvantaged women.
Assisi Garments provides a haven for these women to work and live in and a safe and supportive environment. Thanks to support and regular orders from People Tree, Assisi Garments has grown from 8 to over 100 employees.
In addition to reinvesting profits to grow their business and create more jobs, Assisi Garments invests in the community by supporting various social projects, including a cancer hospital and an AIDS rehabilitation centre in South India.
