Everyday is IWD for us but this week we're celebrating by giving back to one of our Cult Power partners, EMpower. EMpower works with local organizations in emerging countries, to enable marginalized young women to transform their lives and communities.
On this occasion we're supporting the initiative "Helping girls speak out and be heard", one of their 'Youth development tools' for young women by donating 20% of our sales coming from female-led brand partners.

One-of-a-kind designs, traditional techniques, and new materials - Sarah’s Bag is this and more. The label is a social enterprise which employs female workers all over Lebanon to provide you with 100% handmade bags. An artisan can work up to 25 hours on a single piece from Sarah’s bag to bring these designs to life.
Sarah’s Bag works to empower underprivileged women. The signature hand beading and embroidery the bags are known for is meticulously crafted by a team of over 200 women, among whom are female prisoners, ex-prisoners and underprivileged women in Lebanon. Most of the designs are created to showcase their skills.

niLuu is the culmination of founder Nilüfer Bracco’s journey to a more sustainable life. They are here to prove that luxury and sustainability can go hand-in-hand. As a '1% For The Planet' member, the brand has pledged to donate 1% of its annual revenue toward protecting Mother Nature.
The Colombian designer is inspired by the Latin roots in order to conceive pieces that interweave the pre-Columbian art with the delicate European design, and so, bringing to life unprecedented collections.
In addition to that, these creations impose themselves as a manifesto stating that jewellery and good taste can go hand in hand with the current ecological movement.
Each JVR jewel is crafted by local hands under the criteria of fair payment, using a part of recycled silver, and a part of the sales is donated to causes that help reforest and counteract the damage done.
With a considerable artistic background, Kika Simonsen brings an interesting mix between art and fashion to her homonymous brand founded in 2015. The designer’s unique brushstrokes come from Kika’s artwork, made in many layers of acrylic paint created in her studio in São Paulo, Brazil. Each painting is transformed into exclusive and timeless prints in each collection.
Kika Simonsen’s pieces are made from a mix of traditional pattern making and draping in a way that the female body and prints are always valued. Each cut is carefully thought of, so that prints, and patterns are beautifully enhanced.
Sustainability is always in mind as Kika Simonsen always works with textiles made from upcycled fabrics. All the processes of making and dying fabrics are idealized to reduce the use of water and making all the conventional steps eco-friendly. Everything is artisanal and made in Brazil.
