How it's made: Made by Assisi Garments. Assisi Garments is a social enterprise in India. Assisi was set up by Franciscan nuns, it started by providing training and employment for deaf, mute and economically disadvantaged women.
The skilled artisans at Assisi transform Fairtrade and organic cotton fibre into beautiful 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 also spins the organic cotton at their recently opened Spinning factory.
Care instructions: Wash on a low spin with mild detergent and with similar colours. Do not soak. Reshape while damp. Line dry in the shade. Iron inside out on medium heat.
People Tree is a brand with a clear mission: to become 100% Fair Trade and to be as sustainable as possible. They achieve this by supporting their production partners, protecting the environment, delivering quality products that convince people that they are fair and sustainable, create an environment in which discussion with the stakeholders is supported, and by setting an example for companies and government bodies that the Fair Trade model works.
People Tree has joined the WFTO, and are therefore proven to be honest. In addition, most of the organic cotton is also Fair Trade certified. More than 80% of the People Tree collection is made from 100% organic cotton, GOTS certified by the Soil Association. This means that the cotton is grown organically, under environmentally friendly conditions, and that also strict social standards are met.
