Rags to Riches (RIIR) is a social business enterprise creating social statements in style. Rags to Riches empowers underprivileged women from the former landfill Payatas who produce stylish bags made from upcycled scrap cloth discarded by garment factories around the Philippines.
To quote from their bag certificates: By buying these bags, you are not only embodying eco-ethical fashion, you are also empowering a community and saving pieces of the world, in ravishing eco-sexy style
RIIR Aranaz bags (photos courtesy of Junie Navarro) will pe posted on their website in a week. Visit www.rags2riches.ph
The bags will also be sold at Aranaz stores very soon.
Patronizing RIIR designer bags is like hitting a bargain. Since the value of helping out these hardworking mothers from depressed communities, to earn a living is priceless.
