Nisolo: Not Alone
Sometimes when you find brands that give back, you notice a drop in quality. For me, that was the first thing I noticed WAS NOT the case with Nisolo's amazing merchandise. Their shoes and accessories are AMAAAAZING. And they aren't only for girls- their line for men is excellent as well.
They have an amazing website and I pulled some snippets direct that I thought were simply impressive:
"At Nisolo, we view our social impact in two ways: game changing and life changing..."
"We operate a hand-up model that empowers makers in emerging economies by connecting them to the global marketplace in a responsible manner."
"For our producers, we facilitate international market access, pay above fair trade wages, offer skills training, and provide safe working conditions. The result? >> Consistent employment, an average income increase of 300% per producer, improved living conditions, inaugural access to education and savings, and above all, dignity and empowerment."
I picked out some of my favorite items from their website (obviously this cute sandal being m favorite)!
