Sarasota, United States - October 16, 2019 /PressCable/ —
Sarasota, Florida, BSWANKY, a luxury handbag designer and manufacturer honors the indomitable spirit of their immigrant workforce through a give back handbag, donating 50% of the profits to Enterprising Latinas!
When it came to BSWANKY’s attention that an organization in Wimauma, Florida was “Being the Difference” by providing training and support to Latina women to pursue their personal and economic goals, they had to get involved.
After meeting with Enterprising Latina’s founder Liz Guiterrez, BSWANKY’s Gretchen Bauer decided that not only would they partner with these women for employment, but also create a limited-edition line of hand painted handbags representing these women’s indomitable spirit. The new handbag design is a purse with a purpose, benefiting Enterprising Latinas.
“We’re so grateful to be able to support Enterprising Latina’s mission that is dedicated to the economic empowerment of low-income Hispanic women in Tampa Bay. Not only can our customers own a limited-edition transformational handbag that’s a one of a kind piece of art, but they can know that the partnership of our two likeminded organizations will continue to support and empower these so very deserving women!” said Bauer.
Artist Cherie Fruehan graciously created a one of a kind piece of art on leather illustrating the women whom it will benefit at both BSWANKY and Enterprising Latinas. To honor both groups of courageous immigrant women BSWANKY seamstresses will be creating 25 unique limited-edition handbags representing the Indomitable Woman.
Fruehan’s quote on The Indomitable Woman speaks to this effort:
“It doesn’t diminish us, as women, to raise up other women. It strengthens us, as individuals, and as a community. Let us empower our sisters—let us see them, nurture them, teach them and support them. Let us give them the tools they need to become the best versions of themselves, in turn, creating a continual circle of impassioned strength, love and understanding. Creating better individuals creates better communities and creates a better world. Be a part of this revolution. B The Difference.”
In a recent ABC 7 Suncoast View segment, BSWANKY CEO Gretchen Bauer shared her passion for BSWANKY’s mission and the importance of the unique nurturing company culture, the incredible team of immigrant seamstresses, and the BSWANKY sustainable partnership with Everglades python hunters that helps to restore Florida’s ecosystem.
The give back handbags are available through bswanky.com.
