Made in the United States
by formerly incarcerated and gang-involved individuals rebuilding their lives
Every year, 12 million girls are married before the age of 18...that’s one girl every three seconds. We designed this special edition bag with VOW to End Child Marriage. 50% of every purchase will support VOW because we believe that every girl should have the right to choose if, when, and whom to marry.
These bags are handmade in Bangladesh and screen-printed in Downtown Los Angeles.

Producers working with Homegirl Cafe create a variety of baked goods using fresh and high-quality ingredients. To create the Cafe de Olla, or cinnamon coffee, the women use oven-dried orange peels and blend freshly ground cinnamon stocks with premium ground coffee. To make the signature jams, Homegirl producers use only fresh and seasonal fruit. The jams are carefully made by hand-stirring and hand-pouring the delicious ingredients. To create the unique granola, the producers use very specific types of cooking techniques — this includes cooking with oven doors half open and at very low temperatures.
