MY FIGHT | Tops + accessories made by artisan women to help fight poverty

written by JILL September 17, 2017

My Fight creates handcrafted products that are made by women fighting their way out of extreme poverty in Ethiopia, India, and Nepal. MyFight started with a mission and goal to help end poverty. Instead of starting a new organization, MyFight decided that they would join the fight in a different manner and partner with existing businesses and small community workshops to help at risk communities fight poverty. They sell jewelry, clothing and different ethically sourced leather bags and purses.

PARTNERING WITH ORGANIZATIONS

My Fightpartners with local organizations in Ethiopia, India, Kenya, and Nepal.  These organizations provide services that empower people in at risk communities to access sustainable income through their own talents and skill sets. When asking these organizations what they needed most the answer was almost always the same:

they needed help connecting with the western market to share their vision to a greater audience.

My Fight connects artisans, business, and organizations that are fighting to overcome poverty with those who wish to help support this fight, not through handouts but by buying quality products that give back.

MY PIECES

BLACK LEATHER SLIM CLUTCH

This chic black leather clutch is made using leather that is sourced from the food industry. It is a part of MyFight’s ‘Moringa Collection’ which focuses on the use of Ethiopian leather made as a by product of the food industry. Moringa is one of the groups that MyFight supports and is based out of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Moringa employs artisans from within local marginalized communities.

This little clutch is great to fit your essentials in and use as an alternative to your main purse. You can fit an iPhone 6/7 plus, sunglasses, lip gloss and some money in it all at once. My favorite part is the cute zipper tassel which adds a bit of an elevated touch to the bag.

MBILI DOUBLE PENDANT NECKLACE

This necklace is made from Kenyan ethically sourced cow bone and recycled metals. The metals used for these pieces are recycled by a large team that collects scrap and recycles it into fine jewelry. It is a long layered necklace great for low cut tops/dresses or to add some class to a basic T. I love the pop of white from the bone and I’ve found that this necklace can really go with any outfit, casual or classy.

TYPEWRITER TSHIRT

A basic white graphic T-shirt made with 100% cotton in Guatemala. The quote on this tee says:

“Some men see things as they are, and say why. I dream things that never were and say why not.” – G.B. Shaw

I am wearing a size Medium, and it fits great, a little loose which I like and great for rolling up the sleeves or tucking it into your jeans. They also have a few different graphic tanks that you can shop HERE.

Make sure to take some time to read through the inspiring stories of the organization and artisans they have teamed up with and help support the fight against poverty.
