This month, Passion Lilie is excited to collaborate with the organization Free the Slaves, whose goals and values align with our own. During the month of July, 10% of purchases at Passion Lilie that use the coupon code “FREETHESLAVES” will go to the capable hands of the Free the Slaves team to help combat human trafficking.
Like Free the Slaves, the Passion Lilie team believes that the anecdote to inequity comes through empowering communities at risk of being exploited to take control of their lives. Passion Lilie empowers our team of all women stitchers in Bangalore, India by providing a positive work environment, fair wages, free on the job training, and flexibility to pursue education and family time.
The brand is based out of New Orleans, where our designer Katie Schmidt designs and patterns each garment. Katie sends the carefully laid out designs to our team in India, who produce our unique clothing using traditional dying and weaving methods along with contemporary stitching. Passion Lilie’s signature aesthetic fuses ancient Indian printing methods and Western retro-inspired silhouettes. Each piece is one of a kind and embodies cultural collaboration.
Modern slavery is one of the most profitable criminal activities in the world. Reports on the number of human trafficking victims vary, but average to approximately 27 million. The statistics are frightening, but the Passion Lilie team is heartened by organizations such as Free the Slaves, and proud to take some part in resisting the industry through our insistence on fair exchange, and safe, sustainable working conditions.
We invite you to check out our website at passionlilie.com. Each purchase you make this month supports Free the Slaves, helps reverse the cycle of poverty, and is one step in the effort to create and foster sustainable societies. Come join the liberation movement, and look ravishing doing it. And don’t forget to use the code “FREETHESLAVES”.
10% of all retail sales for the month of July that use coupon code “FREETHESALVES” will be donated to the organization: Free The Slaves
