WIWW: fashionABLE- scarves with a purpose

For those of you who know me in real life, you know I LOVE scarves. Actually, even if we aren’t real life friends, you probably know that, because I wear them A LOT. And I own quite a few of them… But let me just tell you about my new favorite.

This scarf is from fashionABLE. fashionABLE is a non-profit company working with women in Africa who have been exploited by poverty and giving them sustainable business. I heard about fashionABLE at the Influence Conference, and was incredibly touched by their mission.

These scarves are lovely and buy purchasing them, you are helping a mother/wife/daughter have a source of income for their family.

They make wonderful gifts for your mom, friends, co-workers, in-laws, cousins…etc–and it’s a gift you can feel great about giving.

  1. They are beautiful! :)

  2. Very cute! I am a new(ish) reader and I was so excited to see these scarves! I also try to buy fair trade/from organizations that help give women an income to provide for themselves and their families. We are adopting a child from Ghana and have come to learn how important this is! I hadn’t heard of fashionABLE before so I am glad you posted this. You may also want to check out Sari Bari, soleRebels, and 31 Bits for more cute stuff :)
