I am excited to connect with World Pulse seeing I have founded a socially responsible fashion business, based on supporting and empowering a talented group of women in Peru. A few years, I traveled down to this vibrant country, where I was inspired to start my own business, working directly with a women's cooperative who are victims of domestic violence. I collaborate with these women directly to create a more modern collection of accessories, inspired by the traditional embroidery techniques. I have a collection of handbags, clutches, belts, scarves, cuff bracelets, and more. I support fair trade practices which works to create a sustainable income and financial independence. When we give these women hope, it transforms their whole world. Small steps can move mountains.
