Stash was created in 2017 to produce thoughtfully designed bags made in partnership with artisans around the world.
For months, we searched the globe for skilled artisans to transform our idea into a reality. We found the perfect partner at the HAFDE factory located on the outskirts of Addis Ababa, where leather crafting is a family-run business.
For our debut collection, we partnered with the Ethical Fashion Initiative, dedicated to training and developing artisan businesses.
The Ethical Fashion Initiative acts as a bridge, connecting marginalized artisan communities in challenging and remote locations with global lifestyle brands.
We believe that the fashion industry has the power to be a force for positive change in the world. It is so important to take a more considered approach to design.
Our mission is to change the way leather goods are produced - starting from the sourcing of materials, working with ethical tanneries and factories, and minimizing waste in every step.
