Blumpari: NYC Design Competition Handbag Designer of the year
We are so proud of Cherry Kwunyeun, designer and founder of Blumpari who has worked closely with us since 2007. Blumpari recently won NYC Design Competition for "Most Socially Responsible Handbag" and we couldn't be more proud!
For those that don't know about Blumpari, pronounced "bloom-pari," comes from the designer's Thai given name Parichad, meaning the "eternal heavenly blossoming flower." The budding social enterprise seeks to link hot designers, micro-financed producers, corporate partners, and savvy consumers to support cultural and economic sustainability globally.
