In our quest to find unusual items and indigenous designs, we are aware that  many artisan accessories will come from those who have a rich cultural heritage, but may not be wealthy in the way of the material world. INDIGENIE’S commitment to donate a portion of every sale ranging from 1-5% to a charity, non-profit or org in the country of the product’s origin is one of our priorities. This includes the US of course.

Our first beneficiary is a Tibetan orphanage in Shangri-La. The connection to this orphanage is through our friend Maria, who sponsors children from this orphanage. You can read about this story on my blog  entry Give a Girl the Right Shoes,” or go to one of these  websites to learn more about the orphanage.

We will identify more organizations as the collection and our travels expand.
