This skirt is different because the women of Open Arms are on a mission to do business differently. Open Arms uses recycled materials -- fabric over-runs -- as a means to an eco-friendly product and employs refugee women as a means to a bright future for families in their resettlement in the United States. A refugee is anyone who not only migrates from their country or region of origin for fear of persecution, but also feels they will be unable to return to that area for fear of further persecution. Simply put, refugees seek asylum because of fear they will be detained, injured, or killed if they remain in their country of origin.

Fortunately, the United States continues to welcome refugees on the run from civil unrest, warfare and religious persecution, to the tune of 166,000-plus annually. When they arrive, they often end up on the bottom rung of the economic ladder, ready to work, but subject to low wages, long hours and little upward mobility. Most refugee women in America typically end up trapped in an unbreakable cycle of poverty and dependency that condemns them and their children to a very grim future.

Open Arms & Global Girlfriend are committed to providing refugee women in America a living wage. Combining ESL and enrichment classes on an as-needed basis with family-friendly hours, this meaningful work and living wage are intended to set these women and their families on an upward path of integration and prosperity.

Our Flourish Skirt is made from 100% cotton jersey fabric, and features a self waist band and three flourish flowers.
