Texas polygamy sect launches clothing line

Texas polygamy sect launches clothing line

WASHINGTON - The raid by Texas authorities on a reclusive polygamous sect and their seizure of 400 children has had an unexpected consequence -- the launch of a new clothing line.

Women from the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, who were called upon to make clothes en masse for the children taken into state custody after allegations of abuse, have now turned their skills to commerce and launched an online shop to help the mothers earn a living.

The austere dresses with long sleeves and high collars, loose-fitting pants, long johns and modest blouses worn by members of the sect are reminiscent of 19th-century American pioneers and highlight the sect's isolation.
