The Anju print features line-drawn flowers filled with raspberry, mint, grey, and ivory and accented with turquoise and sage. The pants are trimmed with an elegant Banarasi border of interlocking ivory and gold. The Anju pants are incredibly comfy and versatile – you can wear them as pajamas, lounge pants, or even out of the house!
These cute pants are made by Sudara, a certified B Corporation, whose goal is to empower women in India to live free from sex-slavery by providing them with safe, sustainable living wage employment. Women are often forced into sex-slavery because they lack education, finances, and the resources to resist. However, at Sudara, stitch by stitch, women are gaining confidence not only in themselves but also in their newfound hope and freedom.
Sudara has been able to help hundreds of women find freedom through living-wage employment, and many of the women who have graduated from the training programs have started their own tailoring businesses.
On top of giving women the opportunity to gain job skills that create a pathway to freedom, Sudara created the non-profit Sudara Freedom Fund that equips women survivors of trafficking and their children with education, housing, micro-loans, and the tools needed to build and sustain a new life. It’s vital that the cycle of slavery is broken through stable, loving homes made possible by education, empowerment, and financial resources. By purchasing the Anju pants, you are helping these women heal and build a new life!
