When it comes to fashion, many of us are unaware of the negative impact we can make with our consumerist habits. So many brands fail to advocate for the workers who are making their products, and this can result in cycles of poverty and inequality that are perpetuated by our purchases.
But what if you could make a positive impact with your style? What if your purchases actually changed workers' lives for the better? At Straccio Rico, that's our mission. Come visit our boutique in Mt Pleasant, SC!
IT'S NOT JUST A BRAND, IT'S A STORY
Reflecting our owner's own ethnic heritage, our title is a combination of the Italian word for "rags" and the Spanish word for "riches." This reflects our goal to bring Wayuu artists in the La Guajira region of Colombia out of poverty. With every purchase, you create job opportunities for Colombian artisans. We are passionate about timelessly stylish items that are ethically and sustainably made by indigenous communities.
We make slow fashion for travel-loving spirits, and our one-of-a-kind, handmade items offer you a glimpse of South America. When you buy our handbags and accessories, you're paying for quality and culture. Rather than buying just another disposable, trendy item that will wear out or go out of fashion in a few months, you're investing in your own unique style and in the lives of others.
