Vintage Gold Crossbody
$ 115.00 $ 62.00
Handmade in Ethiopia using fashion to generate income for high potential, talented young women to continue on to university. Every woman who graduates from our partner's work structure is currently pursuing her college degree or has graduated from university. Our partner provides employment (along with access to a comprehensive social impact program) to a team of 50 women and they do it all through a financially self-sustaining model contributing to women's empowerment in East Africa.
With every item purchased with us, a tree is planted in partnership with the National Forest Foundation.
Ethiopians love ornaments, design and aesthetic art and this is reflected not only in the dress of the people but also in their personal adornment. Historically this displayed in their Jewel-studded crowns and diadems, and with their daggers and shields set with rubies and emeralds. The same creative tradition is maintained also by humbler – but no less impressive – skills of the rural weavers of grass, leather and the string of colorful bead necklace and cowries shells.
