{Sponsor Spotlight} Purse & Clutch

My Dear Friends,
I am thrilled to have such a wonderful company as a sponsor for the Fall Fashionista event!  Purse & Clutch is owned by Jen, an amazing lady with a heart of gold.  The good she does for people is humbling & inspiring.  I am proud to have her as a sponsor. 


"The mission of Purse & Clutch is to partner with reputable organizations who employ artisans from developing economies to create reliable, dignified, living wage jobs for those in need. Our vision is to connect consumers with sustainable alternatives to their current purchases in order to create a new normal of fair compensation - especially for those with otherwise limited opportunities to work.
All of the wholesale companies we choose to work with have a vision to connect the poor of their developing region with Western markets. We look for companies who pay a fair, living wage for their particular region and who are committed to creating a workplace that ensures no child labor or forced labor. We carefully screen our wholesalers to ensure they are committed to non discrimination, to environmental sustainability, and to favorable work conditions. Together, we work with existing skill sets in local economies, instead of changing cultural traditions or simply giving handouts, which encourages independence from outside aid that could only be a temporary source of help.

We are currently purchasing our products from JOYN (Northern India),  Handmade Expressions (multiple rural villages throughout India), and are collaborating on product designs for El Transito Centro de Artes (Nicaragua). We just recently expanded our wholesalers to include the lovely scarves and clutches of Craftwork Cambodia. We are excited to have begun discussions with contacts in Colombia, Uganda, Nigeria, and Nepal."

We're giving a clutch of your choice to one lucky winner as part of the Fall Fashionista event!  The event runs from October 11-17th and features tons of bloggers giving away prize packages worth $125 or more each!  Don't miss this spectacular event!  Below is a sneak peek of what you could win!
