In the age of fast fashion where products are manufactured without considering the lives of the people directly or indirectly involved so we can feed our consumeristic egos, when I come across a fashion brand who's making an impact and is actually improving lives, I regain my trust in humanity!
Give Guatemala is a great example of a brand which is leveraging fashion to make an impact. "Give Guatemala is home to 'one-of-a-kind' pieces that support Guatemalan traditions and communities." Give Guatemala partners up with local designers and artists to create a collection of fashion-forward and hand-crafted products that tell stories. The pieces are carefully crafted to express the Guatemalan beauties and bright colours to the world and yet support their community.
Give Guatemala ensures that these local artists are able to generate a fair and steady income to build better futures for themselves and their families. Also, 15% of all the profit from the sale of the products goes back to local charities in Guatemala that are enabling a social change through education, health and development programs.
