Come & get your LOVE. So Me is thrilled to share with you, The Love is Project and all the good it spreads throughout the world. Once I learned the back story and what this project has done over a few short years, I just had to offer them on our site and in-store. The first large order placed in 2015, created over 400 jobs and provides sustainable employment for women in rural Kenya who create beautiful handcrafted bracelets and handbags. Inspired by the vibrant colors and patterns of the Maasai tribe’s clothing.
“We’re about Love. Love is universal. And so is our appetite for storytelling. The Love Is Project exists to share the story of Love – in all its good, bad, joyful and painful guises – via an authentic movement from the ground up. We’ve seen how connecting others through the universal truth of love brings laughter, joy, and happiness.
Every purchase creates a sustainable livelihood for thousands of Maasai women and their families. And as we grow, we will offer more products from different artisan groups around the world. This “Pay It Forward” social enterprise model extends this concept to empower artisan communities worldwide in an ethical supply chain of love. Sales from the Kenya line will continue to sustain economic development for the women of the Maasai tribes while profits will help fund new product initiatives in Bali. Following Bali, additional profits will help start production elsewhere, so on and so forth.
We hope you will join us on our journey!”
