NEOCOCO

A mission-driven apparel company that creates jobs for women refugees and displaced women. Refugee families enter the United States overwhelmed with circumstances and an unpredictable future. Some families have been in transit for years, denying their kids health care and education. We partner with resettlement agencies such as the IRC (International Rescue Committee), Program for Torture Victims and LA Downtown Women's Center to train and enable women to work in a safe environment and contribute to their families and society.
Every hand embroidered t-shirt is a representation of the woman who embroiders it, giving her back independence and dignity. Re-energizing the timeless craft of hand embroidery, every t-shirt is symbolic of women expressing freedom-transcending issues of conflict, abuse and women’s rights.
