Inspired by the shape of the iconic Italian shoulder slouch bag and featuring a chic tassel, the Mimi Shoulder Bag is a contemporary update of a classic style -designed in collaboration with Mandy Moore.
American actress and activist Mandy Moore credits her mother, Stacey Moore, with encouraging her to use her platform as an artist to lend a voice to beautiful and empowering stories. For this reason, the Mimi Shoulder Bag is designed in gratitude to Stacey Moore, who still affectionately refers to daughter Mandy as "Mimi."
While starring in hit TV series This is Us, Moore simultaneously makes time for activism. Her history of social advocacy belies her years; Moore serves as ambassador for the UN Foundations'sNothing But Nets malariaprevention campaign, as spokesperson for Dove'sWomen Who Should Be Famous campaign, and as co-founder of Indrani's Light Foundation to help raise awareness and campaign against domestic violence.
Moore was one of the demonstrators at the Los Angeles 2017 Women's March and has expressed support for the recent #MeToo movement and TIME'S UP campaign.
This professional and personal commitment to supporting underprivileged and marginalized women make Mandy Moore a great partner in Parker Clay's endeavors to empower women in Ethiopia.
At Parker Clay, we express unwavering commitment to providing our artisans (the majority of whom are female) with fair wages, retirement accounts, cellular, food, and transportation benefits (read more in our recent Impact Update). These added resources strengthen the families and communities of our artisans. We continue to support our non-profit partner, Ellilta Women at Risk, as they use holistic, relationship based recovery to break the generational cycle of prostitution in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
We are grateful Mandy has chosen to add her voice to the story of the abounding beauty, potential, and opportunity in the people of Ethiopia.
