The rag making industry in the Philippines is not a very profitable one. Especially if you’re just taking scrap pieces of cloth that you find from the leftovers of the clothing retailers, then a normal person wouldn’t really have much to earn from this. That’s where Rags 2 Riches comes in.
Rags2Riches Inc. is a social business enterprise creating high-end designer fashion masterpieces and home accessories that are ethical and eco-friendly. Rags2Riches empowers women of poor communities, and recycles scrap cloths discarded by garments factories around the Philippines.Rags2Riches is committed to establish a pattern-changing, scalable, and sustainable business that values and invests on people, our planet and positive influence.
In a nutshell, my friends from Rags 2 Riches have built a creative, innovative and sustainable means of social entrepreneurship that hopes to help the lives of many less fortunate mothers in the Philippines. They’re a group of creative entrepreneurs who found a way to build a business that is both profitable and helpful to those in need.
WhenInManila.com was fortunate enough to be invited to the Spring / Summer Fashion Show for the new line of RIIR designer bags and purses. I’m no fashion expert, but I definitely thought that these bags were really nice, especially considering that they were made with scrap pieces of rags. Furthermore, I’m sure that any woman would love to carry around an accessory that’s not only fashionable, but socially positive as well.
I think I’ve just found the holy grail of gifts that guys can give to any girl. This is like the jackpot of gift giving! I can see it now….
Vince: “Here you go baby, my birthday gift for you! This bag is not only cool, but it also supports a very positive cause and will show your advocacy for socially responsible businesses and entrepreneurial ventures.”
Megan Fox: “I want you… take me now!”
Anyway, I can’t guarantee the same results for everyone.
But do remember, next time, When In Manila, do get your own socially conscious designer bag from RIIR’s new Spring / Summer Collection. It’ll help out the communities that make them and it’ll make you feel more socially responsible.
