Through our partnership with Parker Clay, your gift helps employ and empower Ethiopian artisans. An estimated 28 million people in Ethiopia live below the international poverty line of $1.90 a day. Each Parker Clay leather and woven good is handcrafted by artisans in Ethiopia who are paid premium wages, guaranteed pension plans, and follow fair trade principles.

In a few short years, they grew from their first hire, into a thriving team of over 40 full-time artisans. Your gift helps create social and economic empowerment in Ethiopia.

A little bit of structure, a whole lot of style – meet the Bale Sling Bag. Named for the Bale Mountains of Ethiopia, home to stunning landscapes and rare wildlife, this sling-style, gender-neutral messenger bag is designed for everyday exploration and all-day comfort.

Based on a versatile, shoulder sling construction, the Bale can be worn as a one-strap backpack, slung across your chest, or conveniently at your side for easy access. Handcrafted from full-grain Ethiopian leather, this unique bag features a durable, comfort-focused strap and two zippered pockets sized for your essentials.
