i'm really excited to be partnering up with tukula. have you heard of them? tukula is a cause-driven business invested in giving local ugandan artisans an opportunity to grow above poverty. each artisan is given above average wages for their quality handmade products plus medical care, access to saving programs, and pride themselves on providing an encouraging work environment. this gives these ugandan artisans the ability to provide for themselves and their families with homes, food, and education. each item you purchase from this lovely handmade store comes with a small card letting you know exactly who made your item. my bag (seen above) was made by a stunning lady named sally and let me just tell you this bag is flawless. they have an assortment of handmade bags, clutches, accessories and even have a small children's line. you can see some of my favorites here, here and here.

- p.s. happy happy new year!! i'm so grateful for you all! xoxo - sara
