Indego Africa has got you covered this winter with cold weather accessories. They have recently partnered with Anthropologie for the release of their “Sarapo Loop” scarf. This scarf was designed by Anthropologie’s Linda Trau, guided by Rwanda Knits, and produced by Indego Africa’s inspiring partner cooperatives Hope, Mpore Mama, Hosiana, and Susuruka – operating together as The Ingenzi Knit Union (IKU). You can pick this scarf up in safron (shown) or winter white to add the perfect pop to your outdoor ensemble. With Indego Africa you can empower women in Rwanda and stay warm all winter with this socially conscious fashion.
We always love playing with accessories and dressing up an outfit, especially when we can do some good and raise money for charity in the process. Noir Jewelry has made a special edition bracelet for Modelinia to raise money and awareness for the famine in Somalia. All of the profits raised from the sales of these bracelets go straight to Save the Children, the world’s leading independent organization for children. Their efforts have gone to help many children affected by famine and lack of clean water all over East Africa. Only the sales for the Somalia bracelet will go to the charity, so make sure you get that one!
