Be good and look cute on purpose with Kate Spade's new bags
The accessories cognoscenti continues its bid for female empowerment through fashion

You know what we love more than cute bags? Cute bags with a mission.

That's the idea behind Kate Spade's long-running On Purpose project, in place since 2014. Through for-profit handbag manufacturing organization, Abahizi Dushygikirane Ltd. (ADC), Kate Spade puts 150 women from rural communities in Rwanda on its payroll; 150 women who are full-time accessories specialists, paid a monthly salary regardless of product sales. This steady source of income allows them to support themselves and their families, all the while building on their artisanal skills. 

Their latest labour of love? Check out the purses with purpose below. We got dibs on the camel clutch.

Kate Spade's On Purpose collection is available in stores and online.
