Serving impoverished women and families, Meron strives to provide opportunities for training and growth paired with living wages for artisans overcoming generational poverty in Ethiopia. This is more than a job, as Meron works hard to create a platform where all artisans reach their personal dreams.  What’s more, Meron creates sustainable and ethical fashion with high quality, original designs.  

Our first edit, the Meron stitched tote and matching wristlet, exemplify sustainable fashion as they are hand-stitched from leather scraps, utilizing pieces that might otherwise be thrown out.  This bag is so unique and we have received rave reviews already!  The tote is roomy enough to hold your 13” or 15” MacBook or other personal devices.

Where it's made

Where it's made

Ethiopia is an East African nation and has the lowest level of income-inequality in Africa and one of the lowest in the world. It is one of the poorest nations in the world, and its capital Addis Ababa is where we find stunning jewelry, handbags and other leather accessories all handcrafted by vulnerable women. We partner with artisan groups serving women overcoming extreme poverty as well as women infected with HIV/AIDS. Many products are up-cycled and repurposed out of bullet casings and other materials to create eco-friendly and beautiful products from past violence.
