By now you have entered our Behind the Seams Giveaway. So, now it’s time to get to know our partners better. Let us introduce you to Noonday Collection. Noonday Collection was founded in 2010 by Jessica Honegger with the mission to partner”with talented artisan entrepreneurs to make a difference in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities.” She knew that using fair trade would be the smartest way to develop and empower her network of artisans, so they could have a sustainable job and future. Noonday supports 29 Artisan Businesses in 12 countries to designs their collection of handcrafted jewelry and accessories. To involve people locally, they created their Ambassador Opportunity program which encourages women in the United States to host trunk shows and spread the Noonday message. The end result is cherished children, empowered women, and global impact. For the Behind the Seams Giveaway, Noonday Collection, submitted two of their most iconic pieces, The Great Escape Bag, and the Just Go Passport Case. The Great Escape Bag From spa days to weekend trips, this block printed canvas pattern and soft leather framed bag keeps you stylish and organized while on the go. Just Go Passport Whether you are traveling from Peruvian hot springs to Vietnam beaches, the Just Go Passport Case is the perfect place to house all of your adventurous stories. Bonus, it is handcrafted by a group of talented leatherworkers in Haiti who also weave their stories into each case to create a truly special accessory.
