Our range of vegan accessories and sandals has something for everyone: gifts for him, gifts for her, and unisex gifts.

In buying a gift from us, you are giving our incredible team in Haiti encouragement, motivation, and a vital living wage. And, of course, you are adorning a friend’s outfit with a true statement piece: one that speaks a tale of empowerment, compassion, and positive change! 

Let’s take a closer look at a few of the eco-friendly gifts in this collection, ideal when shopping on a budget:

Overnight Clutch

We are living in a unique time in history. We are all starting to ask more questions about the systems at work around us. This includes where our clothing and accessories come from, how they are made, and how it affects the makers.
