united we stand

In an attempt to make even a small difference in the world, one that is often fraught with conflict, I designed the United Collection, representing people coming together in freedom, harmony, balance and unity. Twenty percent of all proceeds from sales of the United bags will go towards the global humanitarian organization, International Red Cross. With my mission in place, this was certainly a fun project to work on. Photographer Hélène Loire and I spent a beautiful late afternoon photographing the collection, beginning with that which we are all entitled to, freedom.

In addition to donating 20% of United bag sales to International Red Cross, I’m giving away a bag to one of my readers (chosen at random Dec 1st) as an early holiday gift.

Meanwhile, let’s all try to maintain a sense of freedom, harmony, balance and unity.

    My favorite is freedom. It evokes the feeling of flying free through the air, and dreaming of no boundaries. Which is how I dream; both literally and figuratively!

    The Freedom bag is my favorite! Not just for what it signifies, but also for what it inspires. And it’s beautiful in blue!
