Its that time of year, my friends. There is just a tiny crispy chill in the air. Pencil's are being sharpened, Trapper keepers are being organized (don't pretend like you all didn't do that yourselves.) It's back to school time! Even though it has been years since I have been in school, I still get that excited anticipation when this time of year roles around. My favorite part of school supply shopping was getting a new backpack. And as an adult today, why not fill that same joy? The College Leather Bag is the perfect anecdote.
Our College bags are part of our leather line of items handmade in East Africa.
In Nairobi, Kenya, you will find the largest slum in Africa known as the Kibera Slum. The design house creating our leather products works to employ members from the Kibera slum in hopes of offering dignifying work and creating a fair, living wage. Each purchase of a leather bag is a direct link to 1 person whose circumstances have been transformed by the hope of sustainable employment. You can personally touch someone's life, offering them an opportunity to live a life outside of poverty. And why not look good doing it?!
So this fall, as the school year unfolds and you are looking for that perfect bag, check out the College leather bag! You won't regret it one bit.
It’s easy to get caught up in the “idea’’ of certain types of clothing. Before you know it that brightly patterned romper jumps into your cart only for you to get home and realize you can’t really wear it with a bra - and it’s way too short - so it hangs in your closet for months. Capsuling makes you think twice before impulse buying items like this because you now have higher standards!
