FashionABLE Scarves - Make a Difference in the Lives of Women in Africa!

FashionABLE Scarves - Make a Difference in the Lives of Women in Africa!

Every FashionABLE scarf style is named after and signed by one of the women that FashionABLE works with. For example Etanesh's scarf says: "Because of you I am ABLE to see my son Abel, grow in character"

The scarves are handmade in Ethiopia by women formerly in the sex trade industry. FashionABLE is committed to long-term solutions to fighting poverty, and their main focus is creating opportunities for vulnerable women. The purchase of their scarves create jobs, so that the women are not dependent upon charity, but instead are a vital part of a developing economy. For every 200 scarves sold, another woman is hired to help create the scarves.

FashionABLE's strategy is two-fold.  They work with women to help them start small business cooperatives and they partner with and require manufacturers to also employ women with fair wages & fair hiring practices.

 

I couldn't be prouder to carry FashionABLE scarves at Giving Gifts. Giving Gifts is a Canadian partner of FashionABLE scarves and one of the first retailers to carry the scarves in Canada. These scarves sell out very quickly and Giving Gifts has a couple of styles that are already sold out in the US. The scarves are 100% woven cotton and make amazing gifts.
