Della- Handbags that "Carry Change"






Based in Los Angeles and designed by humanitarian Tina Tangalakisf, Della is more than handbags.  What she thought to just be a trip to Ghana has now changed her world and many others.  After a serendipitous meeting with a local seamstress, Beatrice Agabe, Tina and her new friend quickly bonded over their love of design and a desire to improve the lives of others.  

The two created Della, vegan bags that would support the economy of the country, but also offer education and jobs for local women.  Della is an entrepreneurial program in Ghana that helps women learn a trade, while also being given classes in micro-financing and assisted  in opening savings accounts.

I am LOV-ing these bold patterns! Perfect for Spring!
