They're a team of friends in New York City giving time and talent to help restore women who have been rescued from sex trafficking. In providing sewing work, they give a positive source of income that reinforces independence, a healthy self-image, and confidence. Elegantees aims to go beyond creating just your ordinary tee; they strive to create masterfully crafted fashion pieces that embody comfort, class, and modesty.

- The Good Factor: Each tee/skirt/dress is made by women who have rescued from sex trafficking in Nepal. They provide a safe housing option and employment opportunity to survivors. Their goal is to open a retail store in NYC to provide further employment and training for survivors. They also run a fun, unique Ambassador Program that encourages women in the U.S. to promote their work and mission by hosting trunk shows and participating in events on behalf of Elegantees.
