Threads of Change

Threads of Change is making a difference in Ghana.

I love these mudcloth bags, clutches, and iphone cases they make. Not only because of the way they are made but why they are made. Designers Rhion Magee and Laura Pursell have collaborated with Project OKURAS to help a rural village in Ghana build a vocational school and sewing center.
Our goal is for Okurase women to have a sustainable trade and an independent income stream to put food on their families’ tables.
In the village of Okurase there is no clean or safe water, no toilets and no medical care. Women struggle to get enough food to feed themselves and their children. With every purchase of a Threads of Change product, money is raised towards helping Project OKURAS reach it's goal.

Check out more projects on their etsy shop as well as their website for more information!
