"We are very excited about this year's design as it incorporates South Africa's national flower, the Protea, set among bright colours that reflect the vibrancy of the creators that make these bags,” says Kate.
“It shares the Proudly South African message and serves as a visual support of a product that is both locally and ethically made."
"The continued manufacture of the Elizabeth Arden bags by the Sparrow Society team in South Africa has been a vital part in ensuring growth and sustainability in the programs and jobs created through Sparrow Society. It has served to sustain local manufacturing and revive lost factory jobs due to increased imports flooding the local market. Through partnerships like these, we hope to revive the manufacturing industry in South Africa and help to create a better and more sustainable future for all."
