Do you know the three secrets of each bag?

Secret 1: We Hide a Secret Message Inside Each Bag

Each bag includes a message written on the inside of the liner by the artist who makes it. The message is sewn up inside the bag where you can’t see it. Each artist chooses her message for each individual bag and writes something meaningful for her; perhaps a verse, her numbers of days of sobriety, or a prayer for the future owner.

We knew this bag was made just for you – you were on our minds as we were making it and we included a secret gift for you before you ever laid eyes on it!

Secret 2: We Name Our Bags After People Who Are Still Struggling With Addiction

Each of our bags is named after somebody we know of who is still struggling with addiction. The artists behind each bag pray for this individual as they are making it.

We receive names from organizations like She Has A Name and Faces of Change in Camden, NJ, which work with individuals still on the streets. 

We let our customers know they are carrying their bag in honor of someone we hope finds healing, just like the women on our team have. 

Have someone you'd like us to pray for and name a bag after? Send us their first name. 

Secret 3: We Incorporate A Nod to the Japanese Art Form of Kintsugi

We feature gold thread in each product as a nod to the Japanese art form of Kintsugi. Kintsugi uses gold lacquer to repair the cracks in broken pottery. What began as a practical solution was so beautiful that it became a form of art. It recognizes that a piece is more beautiful for having been broken.

Just like our women.
