We are so sorry but we are currently sold out of the Orenda Handbag!
You can pre-order for an end of October delivery.
If you love fashion with a conscious, you’ll love our handbags.
We combine a little boho chic look with local weaving skills that result in truly unique designs you won’t find anywhere else.
Each handbag is handcrafted in Rwanda and takes a skilled artisan three days to create.
These strong and resilient women go on to invest in plots of land, buy goats that make milk her family can sell. Most importantly, these artisans grow a sense of strength and confidence that can never be taken away from her!
From one confident woman to another, you will look fierce with your new handbag all while being proud to be part of a story that is sure to stir your soul.
"Orenda" is the invocation of the power of human will to change the world around us.
Some days you feel chaos more than you feel peace, but that chaos you feel is the catalyst and great work is always the outcome. You were never one to sit still. Sometimes you walk to the public bathroom down the hall from your office to do jumping jacks.
You learned long ago that sedentary rule-followers rarely ruffle feathers. But sedentary rule followers likewise rarely change the world. Being a full-time mother, wife, professional, activist and wannabe pastry chef takes almost all of your energy, but anytime you see someone in need you ache to do more.
You surround yourself with people who inspire you and objects that hold meaning. Your Orenda bag reminds you that you can always learn more, love more and give more.
It’s also the coolest thing you own. "Orenda" is the invocation of the power of human will to change the world around us.
“Orenda” is your mantra.
