Grab the Irene wallet for all of the guys in your life & get them a gift with meaning!
This has been the month of collaborations! First, we had the ABLE scarf, designed by our #blogABLE buddy Erin Loechner. And today we launch the Irene wallet, designed by a long-time friend of fashionABLE, musician Matt Wertz...The Irene wallet is not only the debut product for our new men's line, but it's also the first fashionABLE product to be created outside of Ethiopia! (Yup, fashionABLE is expanding, y'all!) This deluxe leather wallet was hand-crafted in Kenya, with our newest fashionABLE partner: Rift Valley leather. We can't wait to to tell you more about Rift Valley, about Kenya, and about Irene, the heroic woman this product is named after, who is ABLE to have confidence + dreams for her future. (Stay tuned tomorrow for more!)
"In 2006 I traveled to Africa for the first time with my friend Barrett Ward. The fruit of that trip has continued to bloom almost a decade later, first with the start of The Mocha Club, a social giving platform, and now, a special collaboration with fashionABLE, a business creating + sustaining jobs for women in Africa. The Irene Wallet is the first collaboration between myself and fashionABLE and was born out my coming up empty when trying to find a replacement to my favorite wallet- a simple bi-fold with a spring-loaded money clip and chunky, contrast stitching. As with all fashionABLE products, the purchase of the Irene Wallet provides opportunity and therefore dignity for women… and they are crafting a beautiful and stylish product. I’m confident you’ll enjoy the Irene wallet as much as I have!" - Matt Wertz
