Beautiful beaded evening bags without guilt

Last week we posted an article about evening bags – those essential additions to turn an evening dress into a co-ordinated evening outfit. We mentioned this years ‘must have’ – the beaded bags but questioned how anything so labour intensive and intricate could be delivered without the stink of a sweatshop.  Well we have been proven wrong and are delighted to be so.

We have found beauty and fairness delivered together in bags sold by Monsoon and the accessories arm, Accessorize. The Monsoon Group not only insists on suppliers signing up to a code of conduct but they do regular visits and spot checks. Any issues are addressed through co-operation and failure to play a fair game results in business being withdrawn. More than that, their ethical compliance team works with home-based artisans ‘to ensure these craftspeople receive fair ‘piece rates’ for their wonderful work.’

So the Sassistas are delighted to cover a selection of simply gorgeous bags which are lovely not only for their design but also for ensuring that the women who make them are not suffering for our desire to be Sassy.

The Monsoon bags

Monsoon tend be more subtle than Accessorize so go here for elegant bags in gold, silver and pearl shades – or sassy black and understated.
