for every bag sold, 100% of the proceeds funds the training costs and wages for each trainee to learn to sew as a paid student of course of trade.
cutting and sewing this bag teaches the skills necessary to work in garment manufacturing: darts, clean finishing, top stitching, double needle hems, merrowed seams.
we utilize the full width of the fabric and adorn with remnant cuttings of ribbon. beauty + zero waste! this version is particularly special -- it's one of one with hand appliqued black grosgrain ribbons.
this is more than a bag. it's an opportunity.
it's a chance for us to teach and those in need to learn new skills.
it's a chance to make a difference, one person and one stitch at a time.
by working together and spreading the word, we bolster small and large businesses and open doors for our neighbors.
