Here's a clutch you won't feel bad splurging on.
It has a bold, beaded tribal pattern, and it's fancy but not too fancy. You can take it to every holiday party you go to this season, and after that, you can take it to every wedding, cocktail party, and dinner date you have.
By this time next year, the average cost per wear of this supremely chic bag will have worked out to a crazy, whopping grand total of five whole cents.
But that's not the reason you won't feel bad about shelling out $150. In fact, not only won't you feel bad, you'll actually feel really good.
Why? Because this supremely cool Sass & Bide clutch was made in collaboration with the UN and the International Trade Centre as part of the Ethical Fashion Initiative. That's the program that Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood work with too, and its aim is to empower women in disadvantaged parts of Africa through work.
“It is inspiring to be working directly with the East African Artisans and to be influenced by their tradition, culture, and daily lives," Sass & Bide brand director says of the program. "By partnering with these talented craftswomen, it allows them to support their immediate families and greater communities. It is rewarding to see that their wages are used to educate their children. This one step forward toward the fight against poverty.”
This is the third time Sass & Bide has partnered with the Ethical Fashion Initiative, and in addition to the white "Oh Yeah!" clutch above (yes, Oh Yeah! is really its name), the brand also produced two other bags for the program that are just as chic.
