I love it when I can buy a cute handbag and support a good cause in one fell swoop, and I love it even more when that handbag comes from a charity that supports women in particular. It just seems so appropriate – a product made by women, for the enjoyment of women, that not only benefits those that use it, but also those made it.
Like the Feed 2 Kenya Bag that we talked about not too long ago, the Kate Spade Hand in Hand Raffia Tote is also the work product of women in disadvantaged parts of the world – in this case, it’s women from the war-torn locales of Bosnia and Kosovo in conjunction with the Hand in Hand organization. I would think the bag was cute even if it didn’t represent a good deed, but knowing that it does makes it that much more satisfying. Buy through Kate Spade for $175.
