Though living in the countries of India, Mexico and Kenya that are culturally diverse and artistically rich, small artisan co-ops making our handbags and scarves have struggled with extreme poverty. However, in being part of a fair trade system that includes a just compensation, they are motivated to create a better life for themselves and their families. All of our handbags and scarves are hand made and hand woven from recycled, reused or naturally grown materials so there is something for every taste.
In order to purchase these items, you must be part of one of our fundraising events for a school or nonprofit.
