The POWER of Empowering

I’ve got a pretty cool job. As a buyer for Louette I have the opportunity to seek out really unique companies that are doing awesome and creative work. Social companies are changing up the fashion and gift industry (TOMS was the frontrunner).  It’s amazing how a little planning and creativity can foster fashion forward/quality goods while helping to combat poverty and empower women. Here are two of my favorite socially driven companies.

**FashionABLE assists the global community as well as locally in Tennessee and Revive Bath and Body is a southern company as well, helping others in Atlanta, Ga. Read below to learn more:

We are proud to carry leather goods from FashionABLE–a company that supports women both locally and globally by providing jobs. Not just another social company, FashionABLE has done the research to find that “throwing charitable funds” at poor communities does not combat poverty. Instead, FashionABLE works closely with manufacturers in communities to help them implement business practices and work environments to be successful. “We believe that serious long term solutions to poverty lie in creating jobs, not giving money away” (www.livefashionable.com).

Fall 2016 Collection

Stop into the shop to check out our collection from FashionABLE! We’ve got wallets, cross body bags and totes. You are going to LOVE all the rich hues and beautiful craftsmanship.

Revive Bath and Body

Screen Shot 2016-08-19 at 10.47.16 AM

I literally stumbled across this company walking through Virginia-Highlands in Atlanta, Ga. Originally I was intrigued by Revive’s loofah soaps and then when I learned they are a locally owned, socially conscious company– I had to get it in the shop! Owner, Catilin started her company at her house. Making soaps for fun, it quickly morphed into a full-blown business.

“RENEW. RESTORE. REVIVE” is the slogan for Revive Bath and Body. In 2014, Revive partnered with Haven Atlanta to help women exit the trafficking trade. More about this amazing partnership HERE

One of the best-selling gifts at Louette are Revive’s Loofah Soaps. Made with all natural ingredients, these soaps beautifully exfoliate the skin. Available in eight delicious scents. Portion of the proceeds are donated to HavenATL.
