Description + Story

This bag was co-designed and crafted by our friends at the Haiti Design Co-op.

The Haiti Design Co-op was founded in 2014 with the goal to bring about sustainable development through design, training, and job creation. Their mantra around the workshop is "MEN ANPIL, CHAY PA LOU". This is an old Haitian proverb meaning "MANY HANDS MAKE THE LOAD LIGHT". They believe that there is commonality between the designer, maker, and consumer, and that when working together we can help lighten each other's load and bring about lasting positive impact.

Little by little their small workshop has grown and evolved into a training and production center employing over 150 people within our workshop and HDC partner branches. They work to provide consistent employment in-house in order to give job training and stability to individuals in vulnerable situations, as well as raise up artisan leaders to succeed as independent entrepreneurs in the community.
 

Details

*Limited Edition* Our Leather Tote was born out a search for a beautifully constructed, ethically made everyday tote. We knew we wanted a bag that would match almost anything and could be dressed up or down. Opting for two-tone leather, we partnered with our friends at the Haiti Design Co-op to create a *Limited Edition* piece that fits all of our goodies, from our laptop to make-up bag. Black 15" H x 17" W x 6" flat bottom. 19" Handles.

Functional Luxury and affordable Review by Jill
When I got this bag I thought it would be for travel. I carry it ALL THE TIME. It IS great for travel (fits all your electronics + stuff for the flight). It gets softer with use and is for every season. Once my friends saw this bag they all bought one and love it. It's a piece you can use for years (if your BFF doesn't steal it from your closet). It's so durable it will last a lifetime. My niece already has dibs on it when I want to hand it down (never!). (Posted on 7/25/2017)
