"We envisioned a company that not only helped save the life of a baby through the power of the consumer, but gave back at every possible touchpoint. We would make sure our clothing was made in the most ethical way - paying fair prices to workers and providing equitable working conditions. We researched hundreds of factories and found the wonderful one with which we work - Assisi Garments in Southern India."
