BE UNIQUE. The Bon Boho bag will be a beautiful addition to your wardrobe this summer. Covered in signature kantha stitching on a Sanaya Set hand selected recycled sari, it is sure to make you glow with goodness and style. Each bag is as unique as you and the artisan who lovingly made it.
Sari Bari seeks the sustainable restoration of red light communities and the prevention of the exploitation of womxn & children. Their mission is to offer freedom to womxn who are trapped in the sex trade and to provide opportunity to those who are vulnerable to trafficking by providing employment in a safe, loving environment, where womxn are trained as artisans. These artisans create beautiful, sustainable, handmade products, while making their lives new in the traditional kantha style. Learn more about the impact Sari Bari makes here.
“Kantha has traditionally provided womxn with space and time of their own with which they created this extraordinary art-form. It is an exclusively womxn’s activity where they can interact with other womxn and gain a sense of self.”
—Jasleen Dhamija, from the Craft Council of India
BE RESTED. Comfy nights just got more comfortable with the Grace Eleyae satin pillowcase. This soft, luxurious, satin pillowcase will make your bed even more comfortable and inviting - and, of course, it's great for your hair and skin, too.
From assistant to CEO, Grace Eleyae turned what she viewed as her biggest disadvantage into one of her greatest opportunities.
Growing up as a dark-skinned, first-generation American in a predominantly Caucasian suburb, Grace was the girl with short, fine half-Kenyan hair who always wanted her ponytail puff to sway back and forth like all of the other girls.
Weaves, wigs and perms became her go-to. Not necessarily because she loved the style, but because she wanted to hide her natural, non-swaying hair.
Then Solange Knowles came on the scene. Then Janelle Monae. Then Lupita Nyong’o. All women with different hair-types who embraced their natural hair. In their confidence they disrupted the “swaying hair” beauty standard and encouraged others, like Grace, to do the same.
In 2014, Grace did the big chop (gulp). It gave her the courage to live the life she wanted regardless of negative external influences. In other words, it gave her the courage to live confidently and go natural.
Grace Eleyae’s goal is to provide women with confidence by offering solutions for the busy multi-taskers who want to look and feel confident while investing in being their best, most beautiful selves. Her luxury hair protecting products are elegant and stylish additions to any home and to any outfit. They help multi-tasking women save a ton of time getting ready in the morning, keep her hairstyle longer and her hair healthy, in place, moisturized and tangle-free.
Grace has been named as one of the top ten black female Founders who dominated 2016 by Huffington Post, 3 Kick-Ass Women Entrepreneurs You Should Know and more. In only 3 years, she has sold more than 500,000 products to over 200,000 people worldwide.
BE INDULGENT. The Divine Chocolate Toffee & Sea Salt Bar is seriously smooth 70% dark chocolate with a dash of sea salt, perfectly balancing the sweet crunch of toffee.
Divine Chocolate is a mission-based social enterprise committed to providing exceptional products while empowering womxn cocoa farmers to succeed both socially and economically. Divine is the only Fairtrade chocolate company that is co-owned by cocoa farmers, and members of Kuapa Kokoo Farmer's Co-operative in Ghana receive the largest share (44%) of all distributive profits. This allows the members of the co-operative to decide how best to use their income to support their communities and enable each other to thrive through womxn's training programs and educational workshops. Divine Chocolate is also a certified B Corporation and distinguishes itself from other companies by exemplifying how a business can be successful with a focus on social, economic, and environmental justice and equality from the source.
BE BEAUTIFUL, INSIDE & OUT. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice style to make a difference. By wearing these gorgeous Purpose Jewelry Dusk Drop earrings, you are providing freedom, dignity and hope for these amazing artisans.

From creation to shipping, these young womxn are playing a critical role in every step of the process. They are able to earn a fair wage and gain employable skills for the future.
