Because every women deserves to feel confident and empowered
What do we do
Our objective is simple, to work closely with local charities, organisations and community groups across Dorset, Hampshire, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole to provide clothing to women in need of clothing support. Our aim is to provide a local community resources for organisations to use and partner with, enabling them to support more people in more ways by connecting with us. There is No judgement, no criteria, no questions asked – we trust the professional opinion of the organisation submitting the clothing gift bag.
We hope to move away from the notion of clothing donations arriving with the women who need them in a black bag (the embodiment of a bag of rubbish). We use good quality donated clothing for our gift bags, donations we receive from the general public and also from retailers and businesses. The clothes are laundered, ironed, folded and beautifully presented in drawstring bags, lovingly handmade using up-cycled fabric. Our clothing gift bags are personally tailored to the recipient’s size, style preference and clothing need. Each gift bag contains approximately 18 items, an inspirational message and a handmade lavender heart. A foundation wardrobe of everyday essentials.
There are many women living in the UK who need clothing and many women who have a wardrobe full of clothes they no longer need. Clothes they do not wear, no longer fit or have fallen out of love with. We believe we can bridge the gap by supporting women as well as promoting sustainability and extending the life of garments.
