Amanda Hearst: I Support 'Fashion. Love, Africa'

Model Amanda Hearst wears her support for the new, eco-friendly totes Fashion. love, Africa.

The bags are beautifully constructed and handmade by women in Africa who receive a steady source of income for the production. The designer Ryan Clements, who previously worked at Zac Posen, purchases the bags with $10 from each tote going back to help the women and their communities in Africa.

Rachel Bilson and Kristen Bell are even fans of the line!

Ryan was inspired to create the collection after an eye-opening trip to Kenya. For more info on the bag line, visit!

    The bags are great. However, they’re selling for $50.00 on-line, and the women who make them are only getting $10.00/bag. Why aren’t they getting 50% of the sale? Someone is being exploited. Jared, please explain.

    ‘Model’ Amanda Hearst. Are you really a model if your parents own the magazines you’re featured in?

    I’m asking, how many children would be able to drink water and to eat food, with the cost of those shoes.

    Same thing with other people clothes.

    Susie#1 I think the $10 is what goes to the entire slum community (ie. people who didn’t make the bags).

    Quotes from the website:

    “Each bag is purchased directly from the woman who constructed it, allowing her a consistent source of income.”

    “After profits from the sale of each bag, ten dollars is deposited into a fund benefiting the entire slum community…”

    I’ve been to this slum, and I know the Fashion, love, Africa approach will be doing amazing things for these women and their community. A steady income (rather than a sale here or there) really makes a difference.

    lol Says:

    When has Rachel Bilson or even Kristen Bell ever been seen walking around with these totes?
    And why do the people that need the money in Africa only recieve $10 out of every $50 made? Now if they got $25 out of every $ 50 then I would buy the totes… but otherwise no thank you.

    @Susie#1: I couldn’t agree more! I went to the website to look at the bags, and I was aghast that they cost $50 with only $10 going to the women in Kenya. Where is the other 80% going???????
