ASSISI GARMENTS


Assisi Garments is based in South India. Assisi Garments makes many of People Tree’s jersey pieces in soft organic and Fairtrade certified cotton, from yoga wear, essentials and printed tees.

Assisi Garments also spins the organic cotton at their recently opened Spinning factory. The organic cotton and the supply chain is Fairtrade and GOTS certified certified in India and is then transformed into beautiful 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.


WHAT DIFFERENCE HAS ASSISI MADE?


Assisi Garments is one of the first social businesses that People Tree worked with. Set up by Franciscan nuns, it started by providing training and employment for deaf, mute and economically disadvantaged women.

Assisi Garments invests in the community by supporting various social projects, including a cancer hospital and an AIDS rehabilitation centre in South India.
