While looking through their fashion site, I love the craftsmanship of the bags, jewelry and apparel featuring knitting, crocheting, handlooming, leathersmithing and weaving. Some of my personal favorites were the Horn and Roses Necklace, Peruvian Embroidered Bag, the Chelsea Handbag and the Tallia Cocoon Cotton Sweater.
Additionally, these purchases help the artisans, mostly women, to consistently feed their families and send their children to school-- including the girls. In addition, their net proceeds help fund community improvement projects abroad and select U.S.-based charities.
