NEST + Proud Mary
Awhile ago, Suz left a nice comment in reaction to one of my posts telling me about a wonderful organization called Nest, which I’m just now getting to posting about it. Like, Kiva, Nest offers micro-loans to developing countries, but Nest also strives to connect designers to artisans, while helping to provide them with fair wages. The other week Grace posted these wonderful bags by Proud Mary, one of the first of these cross-cultural collaborations. Proud Mary was born out of a shared passion by Harper and Molly for social responsibility and good design. Thanks to Nest they were able to work with artisans in Guatemala to produce their first line of three fabrics. Check out more from Proud Mary right here, and get the whole scoop on Nest here.
