US Designer Empowers African Women

 

CHICAGO -  Fashion designer Nicole Miller, who has boutiques across the country, has partnered with the nonprofit Indego Africa to launch a line of fair-trade textile bangles and woven bracelets.

Indego Africa empowers African women to lift their families out of poverty through fair trade partnerships. The nonprofit specifically partners with more than 250 women in five independent, for-profit artisan cooperatives in Rwanda, Africa.

"The partnership began officially when Nicole decided to collaborate on the bracelet design in late September 2010," said Desiree Thomas, Executive Brand Manger and Retail Director at Nicole Miller.

The bracelets can be purchased at the Nicole Miller boutique located at 1419 N. Wells St. or online.

Nicole Miller and her team purchased the bracelets up front from the two Rwandan villages of Cocoki and Covanya to benefit the women. In addition, they are donating 15 percent of the proceeds to Indego Africa.
