Our inception in the industry dates back to 1994 as a non-profit rehabilitation program established in Tirupur by the Franciscan Sisters. Employing a workforce of 300 including underprivileged women and 120 physically challenged people, the endeavour was the first-of-its-kind in India. Those humble beginnings have since then paved the way for us to be a garment manufacturer of repute. Today, our garments made from Organic and Fairtrade cotton, are favoured by a global discerning clientele across Europe, Japan, Australia and the US.
Assisi was established nearly two decades ago with 5 trainees in a small building of 2000 sq.ft. Initially the factory was run exclusively for the deaf and dumb, and then gradually progressed to export organic products to ELPUNTE, an German importer. Among the first companies in the world to endorse Organic Cotton and Fairtrade, we started contract farming in Maharashtra by giving advance to the farmers. Though hesitant at first due to less yielding , the farmers co-operated and in due course, the production of Organic cotton increased across India.
Assisi has been recognized as one of the first companies in India to use organic cotton garment manufacturing. Deeply committed to the environment we operate in, we believe that endorsing organic products is the first step in this direction. Conventional cotton cultivation necessitates the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. These not only have an adverse affect on the soil but also cause damage to human health. Which is why, we exclusively manufacture and export only organic and Fairtrade garments across the world.
Organic and Fair Trade Cotton
In the initial years of our operations, we had our own organic contract farming in Maharashtra with 400 farmers. Today, our commitment to the cause of manufacturing organic products has been acknowledged by internationally acclaimed bodies.

Our dedication to incorporate organic cotton has been attested to, by FLO CERT – FLO International e.V and its certification body, FLO-CERT GmbH - the pioneers of Fairtrade Certification. Our products come endorsed with the FLO CERT certification mark, the most recognized guarantee for consumers that the goods they are purchasing have been produced and traded according to Fairtrade principles.
