Promoting ethnical fashion and fighting against African poverty is the correlation between the Sass & Bide ITC project. Empowering a nation through artistic outlook to create fashionable pieces available to a wide audience is the thought process behind the limited edition items. The collaboration is a part of the ITC's Ethical Fashion Initiative which has worked with big names like Fendi, Vivienne Westwood and Stella McCartney in the past. The Australian design team worked with women from East Africa to create two pieces -- a tote and clutch. The impact of this handbag coincides with the impact of exporting goods for charity.

The detailing on the handbags feature geometric prints ombre-ing from black and white to a rainbow-inspired bottom. Dangling rainbow friends and beaded handwork makes the bags an eye-catching delight.
