Denim Therapy Donates Denim To The HaitiCorps International Handbag Project


Denim Therapy has been donating unclaimed jeans to a good cause, and now we want you to see the results. Launched in November, 2011, the handbag project is a partnership between HaitiCorps International and FAVILEK (Fanm Viktim Leve Kanpe/Women Victims Get Up Stand Up), an organization dedicated to helping women who have been victims of gender-based violence.

Through the Handbag Project, HCI and FAVILEK will train women in sewing and other techniques and offer stable employment with a fair wage. A profit-sharing agreement between HCI and FAVILEK will ensure that the project remains responsive to the needs of Haitians themselves and will allow FAVILEK to expand its much-needed programs to more vulnerable women. See some of our jeans transformed into handbags below.
