Carry A Cause
Rice is nice, but it can be fashionable too! Malia Designs is a handbag company created for a cause with a little fun and eco-friendliness thrown in for good measure. Founded by two women after seeing the economic hardships of women in developing countries, they bring carefully crafted and beautifully designed products made by these disadvantaged people to the Western world so everyone will benefit. This simple act increases the economic opportunity of women in Southeast Asia and in addition Malia Designs supports local and international non-profit organizations that fight human trafficking.
They have a great selection of creative handbags and accessories, and their recycled line made of reused rice bags is our favorite. From iPad cases and laundry bins, to wine bags and yoga bags, find everything you need that will make you look cool and caring.
