It always makes me happy when big brands use their powers for good. Today, Kate Spade launched a new project; on purpose — a collection of handcrafted pieces made by artisans in Masoro, Rwanda. Kate Spade is teaching a group of 150 women in Rwanda to become a profitable supplier to all of the Kate Spade brands; with the goal of creating economic stability in their community. Once their community is stable, Kate Spade will do the same for another community, and then another, and so on and so forth. It’s pretty special. I am going to order the pom pom scarf – in pink of course (each scarf takes two days to complete!!) but the printed tote + friendship bracelets are both pretty great, too.
