Meet the Makers
In 2016, we were able to help New Hope Girls achieve their dream of having their very own workshop. It has become a sacred space for women to grow as artisans and individuals. Both of our limited-edition styles were crafted there, by hand, in the Dominican Republic.
Before Ana Silvia became part of the workshop, she longed for a safe and healthy place to work. Since joining the workshop, she has been welcomed into a community with a mission and purpose. Ana Silvia believes each woman in the workshop is a world changer.
Wanda is an overcomer who persistently cares for and encourages the other women in the workshop. She believes that every bag sold is one step closer to victory for each and every life that New Hope Girls touches.
The workshop of New Hope Girls was born in Rosa’s home. She believes that when you are faithful with little, you will be entrusted with much more. A pattern maker with an eye for design, Rosa has seen so many women’s lives transformed throughout the years.
Yosy inspires those around her by singing and laughing as she works, fully aware of the gifts of her sewing machine. Every day she is thankful for the opportunity to support the mission of offering light to girls from the darkest of places, while providing for her own family with honor.
Ivelisse learned how to dream big dreams when she joined the workshop staff. Every day she is filled with gratitude that she is able to provide for her children and believes that their lives will continue to be shaped by every bag purchase.
Nena has experienced profound growth since joining the workshop. She is now filled with the hope that comes from making bags that hold such purpose. She believes that the world will know New Hope Girls’ bags and choose to support their important work.
Before joining the New Hope Girls workshop, Mella had no previous sewing experience. But she has dedicated herself to her craft and is now able to provide for her daughter with honor. She dreams that those still waiting for their rescue will experience the same freedom she has received.
