Brand Spotlight: Elegantees

As many of you know, Instagram has become a new obsession of mine!  While perusing the profiles of other influencers on the highly addictive app, I came across a wonderful company called Elegantees.

Have you ever wondered who actually makes the clothes you buy?  Well, with Elegantees, you shall wonder no more.

Elegantees is without a doubt an amazing outlet for trendy yet simple cotton tees for everyday wear.  But what sets them apart from other retailers selling similar products?  It’s the women who ardently and passionately sew each garment.
Based in Nepal, the sewing center employs survivors of sex trafficking, providing hope to victims as well as a positive source of income that reinforces independence, a healthy self-image and confidence.
After reaching out to Elegantees to learn more about their mission, they shared with me this inspiring story of survival, hope and resilience:
Growing up in a Hindu home, Mary’s parents would not accept her back home after she was rescued from trafficking because of the bad karma she might bring back into her family. Mary was heartbroken by this every time she attempted to regain acceptance. Then she learned to sew and was introduced to the Gospel and through this she gained confidence and hope. Mary sent money to her family and this surprised them so much they accepted her again. For a woman to earn an income in Nepal is a rare thing… Today, Mary’s relationship with her family has been restored and better than ever. She is an inspiration to many women.
Who knew a t-shirt could save a life? Check out www.Elegantees.com to shop amazing styles and above all else help other women find a path to both happiness and success.
