"I'm sorry to keep writing with bad news" said a text from Maria on Sunday.
My heart sank. My sweet friend & the Production Manager for our Mexico collection has already had an exceptionally tough year. I braced myself.
"My house got broken into," she said. "They took pretty much my whole house."
Y'all. They even took her mattress.
Thankfully they weren't home. She, her partner & their dog are safe.
She generously wanted to talk about the stolen samples for our upcoming Spring Collection & make a plan to replace the materials, but that can wait.
Let's help Maria rebuild her home.
When pressed, she shared she thought they lost about 200,000 pesos (about $10,000) worth of their possessions. If we could help with ½ that they could begin to get back on their feet.
Maria selflessly spends her time devoted to connecting artisans in southern Mexico to brands like Purse & Clutch so they can continue to work to support their families - especially with the devastating effects of COVID in the community.

After such a difficult year, I would love to be able to really surround Maria with support & love.
