Handmade Della LA Hobo Bags Employ Women in Ghana

The first item on my summer shopping checklist is always a standout handbag. Because I’m a low-key kind of gal, I tend to go for something I can sling over my shoulder and that won’t rip to shreds under the weight of one too many books.

So, when I caught wind of Della LA’s chic and colorful hobo bags, I went credit card happy. But since each sack ranges in price from $42 to $52, I still have enough money in the bank to eat and pay my rent. Score!

And it only gets better. When you purchase one of these pretty purses, you’ll help this small biz provide the Ghanaian women who handcraft the bags with skills training, educational opportunities, and healthcare benefits. Tina Tangalakis, Della’s founder, was inspired to offer a helping hand to disadvantaged women in Ghana after several volunteer stints abroad.

If handbags aren’t your thing, take your pick from an array of accessories including iPad cases and earrings.
