Women Helping Women
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Claudia Gutierrez, founder, designer, and owner of ClaudiaG. She's a busy woman and was so sweet to spend hours with me talking everything from life as an entrepreneur, brainstorming business ideas, start-up recommendations, advice on working with artisans, and so much more. I was in awe of all that she's accomplished through her lifestyle brand, ClaudiaG. And I'm not just talking sales. Claudia is passionate about design and craftsmanship but she also has a huge heart for helping women - so much so, that she made "giving back" one of the core values of her brand.
Claudia grew up in Colombia and now lives in Houston, TX. Our headquarters are just a few miles apart! She designs all of her products in-house and then has a team of artisans who create the products in Colombia. She still maintains a great relationship with many people in Colombia and visits them frequently. As if creating job opportunities and contributing to local sustainability in both the United States and Colombia wasn't enough, a portion of every one of her products sold goes towards charitable organizations that provide women and children with access to healthcare, education, nutrition, and overall access to a better future. She's not only helping women all around the world look great in high-quality fashion pieces, she's empowering them too! She partners with organizations both here in America and abroad. What an inspiration!
It's a total honor to include ClaudiaG in our curated list of ethically made, socially conscious brands.
