Les Chaussettes Orphelines® is a non-for-profit organisation that was founded in 2008 by Marcia de Carvalho, renowned Brasilian fashion designer. Its main purpose is to offer women of the poor neighborhood of La Goutte d’Or in Paris a rehabilitation programme based on giving a second life to ‘orphan socks’ and transforming them into trendy fashion clothes.

The LinkUp Factory has been supporting the organisation for 5 years.
