“La Vidacita is truly helping change the world on a community level”

This is truly what slow fashion is. The products sold on La Vidacita are made in small batches from the women's homes, which to me, makes them that much more valuable. When you purchase from La Vidacita, you aren't just purchasing a clutch or upcycled jacket, you are purchasing a gift, a work of art, and you are sharing in the journey of empowering women around the world. This is another company that is truly helping change the world on a community level and for the cost of a purse from Anthropologie, you can feel great carrying a piece of art, knowing that it is directly affecting a community.” -Kata Joy, blogger, yogi, and seeker of joy at Live Joyful

“I’m grateful for a company that exists to benefit others.”

“La Vidacita is an incredible company making clutches & jackets that are beautiful and of great quality. BUT, some of the best parts about this company is that they partner with women artisans who haven’t had access to markets that give them a fair price for their creations, La Vidacita ensures that for them so they can provide for themselves & their families. I’m thankful for a company that exists to benefit others.” - Emmy of Good for Thought

“The best kind of gift to give another woman”

“The best kind of gift to give another woman, something that was made by women, for women, to empower women. If you’re looking for gifts for your army of lady friends this clutch is a great idea. Anyone who would get it would be super excited because it’s so cute and it goes with so many things and once you explain the story behind it and who is making it and where the proceeds are going then they’re going to want to show it off and rock it even more.” – Classroom Couture, teacher of Spanish + style!

“It’s impossible to hear the story of La Vidacita and not be moved.”

“As someone we loves stories deeply, it’s impossible to hear the story behind La Vidacita and not be moved. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to think about all the inequality and brokenness in the world. But most of the time, there’s something that can be done to make positive change happen. 
It usually involves starting small and saying yes. La Vidacita says yes to thoughtful designs. La Vidacita says yes to empowering women worldwide. La Vidacita says yes to forming meaningful connections. La Vidacita says to celebrating life. And when I carry my clutch, my voice joins in the chorus and sings, “Yes.”” - Mustard Tights, storyteller and empathy extraordinaire (and the magician behind our first lookbook!)
