Get Involved at Purse & Clutch

Opportunities at Purse & Clutch

We believe that we are connected with the men & women who make our clothes whether we're intentional about that relationship or not. One of our goals here at Purse & Clutch is to make buying Fair Trade & Ethically sourced items as easy as possible by curating beautifully made & beautifully priced handbags & other accessories to help create sustainable jobs for the artisans who make them. 

The way we've chosen to grow our team has been to see Purse & Clutch as a platform for driven, entrepreneurial minded folks with a passion to change the fashion industry by fostering better connections between artisans & markets, and are looking for just the place to try out their ideas & to practice skills to either better prepare themselves for a job they would find more meaningful or to create their own job within Purse & Clutch. 

We have several entry points for differing levels of involvement & locations:

Join our Insights Focus Group

We believe that the more bright minds working on a project, the better the outcome. When that project is sustainable employment for men & women in Ethiopia & Guatemala, we take that task very seriously. With responsible decision making  in mind, we believe in building strategy from data driven insights. That’s where you come in - you fashion gurus, you data analysts, you curious puzzle solvers. Join our Fall 2017 Sessions to provide insights (both initial reactions + researched analysis) on product development,  branding & marketing, & consumer market trends to help us create a strong brand that will continue to provide empowering employment opportunities for years & years to come.

Ethical Fashion Feedback Insights Group

Become an Apprentice

Founder & Director Jen Lewis offers an ten week unpaid apprenticeship program that focuses on giving a glimpse of what it takes to be a entrepreneur. This is a great way to learn the ins & outs of a social business as well as to see where your skills & passions may fit with the current needs at P&C if you should choose to stay on & create a position or program! This can be done in Austin or remotely and is a 15 - 20 hour a week commitment. 

Fair Trade Apprenticeship Program

Host a Workshop or Party

If you're passionate about Fair Trade & fashion and are looking for a way to introduce it to your friends, open up your home, schedule a conference room, or connect in a local coffee shop with your friends & colleagues. We'll pair you with an Ethical Style Director in your area (currently the Austin & Shreveport areas) to help you put together the kind of workshop or shopping event that gets you excited!
