ABLE is an ethical fashion brand that employs and empowers women as a solution to end poverty. They’re deeply devoted to quality – both in the products they make and the quality of life they aim to provide. They invest in, train, and educate women so they can earn a living, break the cycle of poverty, and thrive.
ABLE has grown from hand-woven scarves to a lifestyle brand with leather bags, clothes, shoes, and jewelry. Their jewelry is all made in-house in Nashville, TN, and their leather goods, clothes, and shoes are made by manufacturing partners in Ethiopia, Mexico, Brazil, India, Portugal, and China. Around the world, they work with entrepreneurs who share their values. They’ve found that partnering with local community leaders results in a more powerful economic transformation rather than trying to command change from the U.S.
