We launched the Mehari Blanket
last week -- the first product in our fashionABLE at home
line. We are so in love with this beautiful indoor + outdoor blanket.

And we equally love that this product
is creating sustainable business in Africa with our new Ethiopian partner, Trio Craft. Meet Mehari, one of the heroic ladies we work with:
“I am a single mother to 2 kids: a 17 year old girl and an 11 year old boy. I’ve been working in the coloring department for 8 years at Trio Craft. Before this job, I did not have a sustainable income and couldn’t provide for my family. // This job has changed my life, and Trio Craft is more like a family than an employer. My boy has special needs, and it is because of this job that I am able to support both him and my daughter, and send them to school.”
Because of your purchase, Mehari is ABLE to send her two children to school.
You may notice that our hangtags have had a bit of a makeover... We've combined our previous two tags into one, and all new products will be sent with these pieces to help tell the story of fashionABLE. Each tag tells you what the heroic woman your product is named after is ABLE to do because of your purchase, followed by her handwritten name.
Thank you for continuing to support fashionABLE in creating sustainable business in Africa!
