Olanova has two purposes to reduce the waste of fabrics and to provide jobs to local single moms refugees and seamstresses. This is how it works: people would donate unwanted clothing and fabrics to Olanova, Sonia will take them to the ladies home. Provide them with sewing machines and hire them to refashion and repurpose it. Olanova puts them for sale. Olanova has a division of alteration and sewing services that includes home fashion. Customers will support the program by purchasing Olanova clothing Re-made by local women in need of work. Sonia commented “Olanova is fashion with purpose, without sales the program could not exit, we are grateful to our customers who don’t only by from us because it’s for a good cause but because we have some very cute stuff.”
