Ties for the socially conscious man – FIGS (fashion inspired global sophistication)

• June 15, 2012 • Comments (11)

So the man in your life spends more time in business attire than the trendy Jedidah tees or  funky Gideon shoes? No fear he can still have a socially conscious wardrobe item – a socially conscious tie or scarf from FIGS. The range of ties available from FIGS is wide, from cool silk ties with helicopters, motorcycles or polo playing elephants ($95) to classic wool and silk blends ($65) that even the most discerning man would be happy to wear. FIGS cashmere scarfs ($225) are also a perfect gift for the man that just has too many ties!

FIGS supplies high quality luxury neckwear with a socially conscious focus – for every tie you purchase FIGS gives an entire school uniform to a school child in need of an eduction.

FIGS partners with local weavers and tailors in communities at need to make the school uniforms. So your purchase of a tie provides employment to local adult workers and a school uniform to a child in need. Currently FIGS is providing uniforms to children attending 105 different schools in Kenya, Tanzania and Nepal.

Sadly over 120 million children worldwide have no access to an education, making it very hard for them to learn the skills to become self sufficient and break through the grips of poverty. Even for those children in areas where education is available, for many a school uniform and shoes is a prerequsite to attending school. In areas where poverty is high many families simply do not have the means to provide their child with a school uniform. FIGS thread for thread program strives to counter that by providing a school uniform with every purchase of one of their ties or scarves.

School uniforms are often a source of immense pride for a child and their family, they instil confidence and a sense of self worth. FIGS hopes the provision of that uniform will promote global education and inspire children to realise their dreams.

Next time you think your being boring buying your man a tie – replace it with the buzz of buying a FIGS tie and imagine the look of delight as a child receives his or her first school uniform.

If that doesn’t bring a tear to your eye we don’t know what will!
