shop with purpose

in 2014, we helped a group of artisans set up their own business, a for-profit, b corp certified company that supplies handbags to our on purpose collection. their company employs more than 200 people who earn competitive salaries and enjoy benefits from health care to paid maternity leave.

2% of net sales (up to a maximum donation of $100,503.50) from this shop with purpose event (november 7th-november 11th) will be donated to various community-based women and girls’ empowerment programs in masoro, rwanda where our on purpose supplier is based.
