Call it fashion for a cause.
Mbarqgo, the Los Angeles and Paris-based accessories brand, is using Kickstarter to sell its new collection, and is donating a portion of the proceeds to the Restavek Freedom Foundation, an organization that helps end Restavek, a system where parents who can’t afford their children send them to live with host families to perform chores in exchange of food and education.
The line, which is named Libre after liberation, includes a field satchel, a bandolier, an oversize canvas tote, a silk scarf and a leather wraparound bracelet. Pieces in the collection include details that are inspired by Haiti, including hand-etched and finished Haitian hardware. The collection ranges from $59 to $269 and is available now on Kickstarter.
