Summer 2021 is going to be the summer of new wardrobes, and also the summer of fashion with a cause. And when it comes to bags for this summer, you absolutely need to know about Parker Clay. If you’ve never heard of them, here’s what you need to know: Parker Clay is a worldwide luxury brand that sustainably creates beautiful leather bags, while also supporting the rights of underprivileged women.

All of Parker Clay’s pieces are handcrafted in Ethiopia. There is such attention to detail on the sourcing, stitching, and even the grain of the leather. These bags can last a lifetime, and they even get better as they age. With offerings ranging from wallets to travel bags for all genders, there’s truly something for everyone to purchase to support this truly momentous brand.

Parker Clay was started by entrepreneurs Ian and Brittany Bentley partly in order to help women in Ethiopia. The brand creates employment for women, and is committed to paying fair wages in an economy where, very often, jobs with that level of pay don’t exist for women. But creating safe and rewarding work for women in Ethiopia was just the start, and Parker Clay didn’t just stop there. The company is a certified B Corp, which means that social and environmental causes are central to their business, and they’re a company committed to a more just and sustainable future.

So, we’ve basically established that a Parker Clay bag needs to be in your rotation for this summer, and you can hit up their website to shop! Also, check out their Insta for their latest releases.
