Power Of Women

posted on: March 30, 2016

I recently came across these amazing fold over bags with leather tassels and was intrigued by the uniqueness of each handmade clutch. As I was browsing their site, I began to read the empowering story and the woman behind these bags. Paula Minnis, founder of Gaia empowered women, employs resettled refugee women in Dallas TX to make these handmade creations. By using vintage and repurposed materials for Gaia products, each item is crafted in its own unique way. The rich colors and textures of the textiles she selects for each of her bags and accessories and the attention to detail makes my design heart happy. Seeing the beauty of helping others grow and flourish in a new environment is such amazing concept. I love Paula’s quote “Respecting the Earth and Rebuilding Lives.”  Go to www.gaiaforwomen.com to shop and learn more about this amazing brand.
