#FeministNotADirtyWord – Limited Edition T-Shirt Sale
For International Women’s Day, Amy DuFault and TS Designs are teaming up to offer a limited-edition, 100% slavery-free t-shirt that offers transparency through the supply chain all the way back to the farmer! Each T-shirt sold during our two-week campaign will generate $15 for the anti-trafficking field programs of Free the Slaves. This includes educating survivors and the vulnerable about their rights, liberating the enslaved, and helping them rebuild their lives through vocational training and community development.

Amy and her husband Jim, designed the tee because “feminist is a powerful word that has lost its identity,” they say. “It is almost a bad word to say” in some settings, they add. They hope this t-shirt creates a new dialogue that supports women’s rights.
This project also shows that a t-shirt can be made ethically and sustainably, and be a force for change!
Balance for Better – International Women’s Day
This year’s International Women’s Day theme is “Balance for Better.” Gender balance makes a better world possible. Modern slavery is an example of a world out of balance. More than 70% of slavery’s victims today are women and girls. Many of them make your clothes.
The good news is that women are the backbone of the grassroots anti-slavery movement today. The community groups that Free the Slaves works with on the front lines are prime examples of how women can shape the future.
Where Your Clothing – Offering A Transparent Supply Chain
These limited edition tees are made with fabric from the Where Your Clothing (WYC) line at TS Designs. From dirt-to-shirt, they are a part of a fully traceable supply chain, which you can trace through a unique mapping system! The supply chain for these t-shirts support farmers in North Carolina, Texas and New Mexico, and mill workers in North and South Carolina.
The women’s styled tee (slightly more fitted with a flared cut and capped sleeves) will be made from Cotton of the Carolinas fabric; and the unisex tee (your standard t-shirt style) will be made from American Soil Organic fabric. Both fabrics are super-comfortable, ring spun cotton of medium weight, and mindfully constructed for durability.
This is a Limited Edition Pre-Sale Campaign, which means this design is only available for a short time. Orders will be accepted, and then processed and shipped within a 6 week time frame.
Orders will be accepted until March 22, 2019. Then be processed in time for shipping during the week of April 8, 2019. Expect delivery in the Continental United States by mid April 2019. For international orders, expect delivery by end of April 2019.
