How can bowties be a fashion statement for women's empowerment in Uganda?
Lion's Thread is a social enterprise that focuses on fashionable, high-quality products that make a community impact and change women's lives. Need a Father's Day gift? Give your Dad a symbol of economic freedom from Eastern Uganda. See our collection of bowties at Shared Trade. If you need a brush-up on how to tie a bow-tie, watch this great video.
Below we share their inspiring story from Sydney, their Creative Director.
“Every day should be World Fair Trade Day, because women’s lives matter everyday. We have the opportunity to make a difference through our purchases everyday. How much more impact could we make if each day we thought about whom our purchases were impacting. If you thought, where is this piece of jewelry or dress coming from? Our small decisions can make an impact on a woman’s life to help send her kids to school or buy nutritious food. A Fair Trade movement like this can help organizations like us grow and reach more women in our community.”
