Sewing Center
These machines are for a sewing center in the Philippines that is an extension of a safe house for women and children, providing dignified work for some of the residents.   It began as a screen printing business, but they have learned to sew which is both exciting and empowering!

Every time you purchase from Fair + Simple, a portion of the profits goes to the Made by Women Fund. Additionally, we created a Made by Women print for those who believe that when you invest in a woman it also reaches her family and her entire community. All of the profits from this print go to the MbW Fund.
