i like to ditch the leather when the weather gets warm in favor of something more natural. this market tote is fair trade, imported from kenya. i love the strappy leather handles (i guess i don’t have to ditch leather completely) and totally on-point stripes. best of all? it’s $58 from madewell with all funds supporting the artistic talent in the village whence it came via bamboula ltd.
bottom line: new purse for you, employment opportunities and economic development for africa – everybody wins with a philanthropic thursday purseday!
