Standing With Our Partners in India: We’re donating 5% of all sales to Direct Relief’s COVID-19 response efforts.

Like many, we have felt devastated and overcome with helplessness as we’ve watched the COVID-19 crisis unfold in India over the past few weeks. As a clothing brand that relies on India, we simply had to find a way to give back to this country that means the world to us.
Beginning on May 17th through June 17th, 5% of our sales* will be donated to Direct Relief to aid the procurement and distribution of emergency medical aid to India. We are grateful to have found in Direct Relief an emergency response partner whose vision of providing care for the vulnerable and enabling people to thrive within their communities aligns with our own.
As a small brand and team of two, we have always felt a special connection to our manufacturing partners, Archana and Arpana, twin sisters who own and operate the ethical factory in New Delhi where each and every HarperSage piece is made. The country of India holds a special place in our hearts and our relationship with our team and time spent there has had a life-moving impact on us personally and led us to our mission professionally.
