"No pen can give an adequate description of the all-pervading corruption produced by slavery."
- Harriet Ann Jacobs
This is the opening line in the About Us section on Beautiful & Beloved's website. Beautiful & Beloved's vision is "to make a simple path for you to support individuals freed from slavery who are now empowered to earn a living in a safe, clean and just way."
Amber, with Beautiful & Beloved, emailed me a couple weeks ago and asked if I would be interested in partnering with her to get the word out about her online boutique called Beautiful & Beloved, which has recently developed into a store front boutique. Yay Amber! After reading the opening paragraph on Beautiful & Beloved's webpage, I couldn't wait to jump on board. I mean how could I not be thrilled? Purchasing with Purpose to empower others is kinda my thing. I love it! And this is exactly what Beautiful & Beloved stands for.
The merchandise is beautiful and unique and each piece dignifies a survivor of human trafficking or living in extreme poverty conditions. Their desire is to help create awareness of the human trafficking epidemic and to also bring a practical way for you to support the men and women who are affected by this. "Each item is hand crafted by someone who is now free to earn and create." I love that.
Amber was kind enough to send me this clutch from their site. I am in LOVE.
"Theis fabulous clutch is not only hand made by amazing survivors in Cambodia, it is also made from repurposed materials. Recycled coffee bag material makes up the outer body of this beautiful clutch and it is embellished with lace trims on the front flap. The interior of each clutch is made with fabric remnants so each clutch is completely unique. This clutch is handmade by men and women being restored from lives of exploration."
