JCrew and Indego Africa Partner on Fair Trade Bracelets

“Indego went above and beyond in the name of empowerment, creating a business training program to encourage entrepreneurship and independence among the artisans. Woven from locally sourced Dutch wax cloth—and individually signed by the artists—these brightly hued pieces might just be the ultimate friendship bracelets.” – JCrew.com
I love a good charitable purchase, meaning I love to buy something and have proceeds go towards a really great cause. J Crew just added another retailer to my list of retailers to admire for this option. J Crew has started working with Indego Africa, selling 3 different color cloth wrap bracelets for $22.50 on their website and in stores.

Indego Africa is a nonprofit enterprise that partners with women artisans in Rwanda to bring their brilliantly colored and completely handcrafted pieces to the rest of the world. And that's just the beginning of the company's commitment to social change: Indego went above and beyond in the name of empowerment, creating a business training program to encourage entrepreneurship and independence among the artisans. Woven from locally sourced Dutch wax cloth—and individually signed by the artists—these brightly hued pieces might just be the ultimate friendship bracelets.

So will you be picking one up?
