Dame Vivienne Westwood Ethical Fashion Africa Project Bags

Dame Vivienne Westwood is putting her design weight behind a good cause with her new limited edition handbag collection for the Ethical Fashion Africa Project.

There are three bags in the range, each made from recycled materials. The romantic Gaia Heart and tribal Orb bags are crafted from old safari tents, while the cheeky Get a Life tote is made from recycled advertising banners. Each is handcrafted by artisans in Nairobi, Kenya, and relatively affordable at £150.

We don't mind spending that sort of money when we know that 100% of the funds raised by the bags will support the Ethical Fashion Africa Project, which is part of the International Trade Center. The organization works with marginalized women, whether they are HIV or AIDS victims, single mothers, widows, or women living in extreme poverty. It helps these needy groups connect with international distributors and fashion labels, who can in turn help them make products to be sold around the world. With jobs to do and a regular income, these women can support their families and communities, and dramatically change their lives.

The Ethical Fashion Africa Project does such important work, so it's wonderful to see someone of Dame Vivienne Westwood's standing throwing her support behind it. Look for the Vivienne Westwood Ethical Fashion Africa Project totes in stores next month, and online now.
