FEED Projects is going heritage with a new collection of leather bags. Unveiled by the brand’s founder, Lauren Bush Lauren, at the Explorers Club in Manhattan at New York Fashion Week on Thursday, the collection marks the social enterprise’s first foray into the luxury market. Each carryall is a gift that keeps giving. Not only will every purchase provide sustainable employment for artisans in Kenya, but it will also, per FEED’s philanthropic M.O, supply 150 to 300 school meals to children in Africa.
