When you purchase this bag 100% of the proceeds are going towards sending girls in the community we work in to school. Let’s make a meaningful impact!

Each one of our classic clutches comes with a detachable strap that is stamped with the initials of the woman you are supporting.  The removable strap allows it to transition from a crossbody, to a shoulder bag, to a clutch.  Made with genuine leather and a suede interior.  Because we believe that it's what's on the inside that truly matters, our navy bag is made with a hot pink interior (also making it easier to find your stuff). The interior also features a zipper compartment.

 

The BFF comes wrapped in a protective dust bag that is made from a traditional fabric, selected by the woman who made your bag.  This dust bag can be used to protect your BFF during travel, but also serves a much higher function.  It teaches the ladies at neela to use sewing machines, which is a great skill to have! Beyond that it is a tribute to the African culture where your bag was made, and shows the South African women at neela that we value their culture and find it beautiful. 

 

Each item is initialed by the empowered woman who made it. 

 

Brass logo is handmade by an empowered Malawian refugee. 

 

We hand stitch because it is 10x stronger than sewing with a machine.  Hand stitching also creates more job opportunities and allows us to hire more women and increase our impact.  Because your item is handmade no two are exactly the same, slight variations can be expected and welcomed as they add character to your item- reminding you that your purchased empowered a real woman!
