I love fashion, looking feminine, having fun and enjoying clothing. So when I found out about Elegantees from a friend (thanks, Erin!) I was so impressed with their company. So what is Elegantees all about?
PURPOSE :: TO FIGHT SEX TRAFFICKING
Sex trafficking is a form of slavery where humans are forced or blackmailed into working into prostitution. This injustice occurs all over the world, even in America. Poverty, lack of opportunity, and a need for acceptance are common reasons for a woman’s vulnerability to believe the false promises of traffickers.
Elegantees was started to help women recover from the bondage of sex trafficking. Once she’s rescued, we offer sewing jobs as an opportunity to keep her far from the possibility of being trafficked again.
SEWING HEARTS BACK TOGETHER
Currently, we are employing women rescued in Nepal and in the United States. Sewing jobs give these precious women a sense of dignity.
We currently partner with The Nepali Rescue Project and Restore NYC. These organizations are committed to the long-term restoration. The role Elegantees plays in helping to restore lives is through sewing one tee at a time. Freedom is our business mission!
Isn’t that just amazing?
Here is an interview/video from the founder of Elegantees:
So besides the wonderful mission of the company, their clothing is great – the quality is really very very high, the material of the top I bought was super soft, and all of the little details are what make me really love it. Plus, their prices are really reasonable as well – and lots of sale items on a super sale of a price! The top below is the Elizabeth, and it is only $15. I also really love that they have an individual fit meter, because it’s so frustrating to buy something from a company where you normally wear a certain size, but in that particular style, it’s too tight or too big, so you’re never really sure what size you should get. This takes the guesswork out of it – if you like your clothing more fitted and it is shown as a relaxed or loose fit on the fit meter, then go down a size; if you like your clothing relaxed or loose and it shows that it’s fitted on the fit meter, then go up a size. I *really* like that aspect of it. So I love this top. I like my tops just a bit on the fitted side, so I was hoping to get this in a size S, but they were sold out, so I had to decide between a M and an XS, and went with the XS. It is much more fitted on me than the model, but I still like it, and it is really so comfortable!
So check them out – find yourself a special tee, and help an amazing company do good and rescue many lives at the same time!
