One of our customers favourites here at Sancho's and we could not agree more! These organic cotton trousers are soft with a well fitting drawstring waist and taper towards the ankle. They look smart but feel like your best pair of pyjammas. Pair with absolutely anything and wear anywere!
Made by Assisi Garments, which is one of the first social businesses that People Tree worked with. Set up by Franciscan nuns, it started by providing training and employment for deaf and economically disadvantaged women. Assisi Garments invests in the community by supporting various social projects, including a cancer hospital and an AIDS rehabilitation centre in South India.
These trousers are so comfortable and versatile! They are my go-to trouser for lounging around in but they are also easy to dress up to go out and about, especially if you wear a longer top and cover the elasticated waist band. I would say the sizing is a bit generous, I am usually a small 10 but found the 8 to be a better fit as I didn't want them to baggy.The fabric is so soft and breathable with a bit of stretch. They have been a dream during lockdown!
Clothes easy to track, came when expected.
The quality of the clothes is fantastic, and there was a nice note too! There is a range of fantastic brands, some of my favourite. Will 100 percent be shopping there again.
They are so so comfy and the fit is dreamy- they come up quite big but still flattering and easy to dress up or down. Can't take them off :)
So I had to wait a while to write my review mainly cos I wanted to wash and wear the trousers to give a proper review. Basically these trousers just. keep. going. By that I mean they look good wear after wear. Took me spilling coffee down myself one morning to decide to give them a wash and even then you probably would have been fine. They don't go baggy on the bum, you don't get crows knees (you know when you get super baggy cartoon knees cos the material's stretched?) they fit so nicely! They're a jersey material but I can't describe it - there's just a bit more weight to them but they still feel cool and breathable. They definitely look and feel smart. Could totally wear them to work - though not sure if I could tuck anything in... maybe with a belt? But it doesn't matter to be honest. I love these trousers. So comfy. So versatile. Smart or casual. As someone who's weight fluctuates, alongside IBS which means my waist line/stomach can grow and shrink by 2 inches or more in less than a couple of hours, these feel and fit so well. I got a size 12 and they feel true to size for me and my fluctuating body. I'm 5'3" as well and can have them long, but prefer a turned up ankle graze style which you can do nicely with these.
Thank you for this amazing review Harriet! We are so pleased that you were so happy with the service and product. They're built to last so will definitely keep on going as you say. We are over the moon that the fit works so well for you! Hopefully we'll see you again soon.
These are so comfy, but they also look good on, the fit is really lovely and the fabric feels quite luxurious for something that I’d just planned on lazing around the house in. Would happily wear out and about but also comfy enough to sleep in. The fit is generous so if you’re between sizes and wanted them more fitted you could get away with the smaller size as the stretch on the waist is generous.
