STITCHED handbags are a must-have. Not only is the business model for community empowerment and development, but the company also aims to provide fashionable items. Artisans hand-stitch the bags and gain recognition within their community, plus are paid fair trade wages without using factories.

STITCHED doesn't buy into the concept of cheap, disposable mass-produced products made on the backs of exploited workers. The handbags are hand-made, durable, personal and fun. These bags are made to last a lifetime, and are a fashion choice that everyone can feel good about.

The purchase of a fashionable Stitched handbag helps create sustainability, improving the quality of life for those who make them, and in doing so, making the world a better place to live.
