New Americans Learn the Ropes at New Vestures


- by Kerry Abukhalaf

Some photos of the hardworking trainees in New Vestures' workforce training program, located in Lowell, Massachusetts.

The program helps local immigrants and refugees obtain job skills and ultimately find work in apparel factories around the Merrimack Valley. New Vestures is in the process of transitioning to their new home in the top of Mill No. 5, one of Lowell's iconic textile mills. Learn more about this project in our previous article, New Vestures: On the Frontier of Slow Fashion.
