'fashionABLE' is a Nashville-based non-profit brand dedicated to creating sustainable employment in Africa. Through the sale of its scarves, fashionABLE sustains and creates business and uses its profits to rehabilitate female sex workers, providing them with training and employment.

Barrett Ward founded Mocha Club in 2005, which led him to work in Ethiopia for a year. While in Africa, Ward realized the opportunity to ensure rescued women remain rehabilitated involves them finding gainful employment. Ward started the non-profit to create jobs on this basis and continues to pursue breaking the cycle of generational poverty and desperation faced by many women in Africa.

fashionABLE's website features a blog, the full scarf collections and information on how to get involved with their cause. Each scarf is named for a woman whose life was changed by the brand.
