Shop Smart with Annie O.

Annie O. Waterman’s eponymous accessory line, Annie O, was inspired by the vibrancy and cultural beauty of traditional Peruvian textile work.   Her collection includes hand-embroidered handbags, belts, scarves, and jewelry, melding ancient weaving techniques with contemporary design.

To manufacture her products, she turns to various female artisan cooperatives around the world.  The cooperatives are made up of female victims of domestic abuse and extreme poverty; by employing these women, Waterman ensures that they have job security, a market for their goods, and protection from the abusive practices of corporate sweatshops and wage slavery.

This is a call to all the PeaceKeepers in the world:  Shop Smart To Save Lives!By shopping smarter (that $5.99 strip-mall top isn’t worth the unfair labor practices that went into making it), you can save lives—and by purchasing items made with care and skill, you’re saving money too!  Annie O’s collection is a perfect example of how one person, through even the smallest effort, can make a change for the better in the world.
