Why We Do What We Do

We are in regular communication with our Elevita artisans.  We like to know how much business they have, how their children are doing in school, whether they have food on the table, and so forth.  These ongoing conversations are the most fulfilling part of our work.  As part of the dialog, our artisans regularly express gratitude for being a part of Elevita.  We probably don't post these remarks as often as we should, but here is just a small and simple tidbit, received today from our contact in Cambodia who had the opportunity to visit some of our artisans in Battambang.  She writes: 

"...The ladies said that they're very happy for your orders. They use their earnings to buy rice/food for their children and send their children to school. You see most of the ladies in this group are single parents. Once again, they would like to thank you for your orders."

Just another example of how a little bit of help can go a long way to improving someone's lifestyle!  And we in turn are very grateful for the amazing quality these women produce.  They make our "Best Bags Ever" and our "Perfect Pouches."  Well done, ladies!
