Punjammies are ethical, naturally dyed PJs that are handmade in India by women who have escaped forced prostitution.
If you’re going to lounge around the house in your pajamas all day, you’d be better off ditching your overstretched gray sweatpants for a pair of Punjammies . Available in myriad colorful prints, the lightweight cotton pants are just what July’s sultry temperatures ordered. There’s a feel-good story to go with them, too. Handmade in an after-care facility in India using natural dyes and kalamkari block-printing techniques, each short, capri, or trouser provides fair-trade wages to a woman who has escaped a life of forced prostitution.
