PSA. You know those rattan circle bags literally everyone + their mother has been carrying around all summer? They’re from @amerii, they’re divine, and they’re currently 50% off with free shipping. Consider this your call-to-action. .
That said- did you know that #Amerii bags are made by female artisans in Bali, and are purchased from weavers that promote Fair Trade? That means the crafts(wo)men creating the pieces are fairly compensated, allowing them to not only practice their work under fair conditions, but also affording them the opportunity to provide for themselves and their families- as they should. Women’s empowerment. Full stop. .
My mom gifted me an Amerii bag for my birthday this year. And inside the box, in true #MamaMazz fashion, was a print out of the brand’s stance on Fair Trade and Corporate Social Responsibility. I cried. So did she. .
Be conscious of your purchases when you can. Give back and be aware when you can. Support brands that understand the dire need for Fair Trade regulations, when you can. Empower women, when you can.// #wearyouarenow
P.S. Not sponsored, guys. I just really love this brand. Xo
