The Fabulous Fall Scarf Tour | fashionABLE

“I am ABLE to face new changes.”

That’s what Feleku, a scarf artisan in Africa, believes after partnering with fashionABLE. FashionABLE is a nonprofit group that focuses on creating sustainable business for women in Africa who have suffered from the effects of poverty. I couldn’t feel more blessed to be featuring a scarf from such a rockstar company.

Marisa, a fashionABLE representative, shared a bit about fashionABLE’s background with me. It is so inspiring to see a small idea bloom into such a fabulous endeavor … not to mention a beautiful scarf!

I was working for fashionABLE’s parent company, Mocha Club, when fashionABLE was just a little idea. We launched it in the fall of 2010, and in 2 short years it has been amazing to see how we’ve grown! We’ve sold over 22,000 scarves, and employed over 25 women in Ethiopia. It’s so rewarding to see our supporters realize the power they have with their purchase — and that we can be intelligent shoppers and invest our resources and create sustainable business across the ocean.  I love that they are not only beautiful products with great style, but there is a story behind each scarf — actual lives being changed.

Here’s a peek at Marisa, out and about promoting the scarves and women of the fashionABLE team!

You can read more about the women’s stories, fashionABLE’s commitment to making a difference, and ways to style your scarf over at fashionABLE’s site. It’s a really fun website to peruse, not only can you purchase lovely scarves, you truly get a peek into the lives these scarves are changing.

In the opening photo, I’m wearing the Feleku scarf in the ecru charcoal color. Isn’t it the best? It is such a versatile color without being plain ol’ black or white; I’m beginning to think it matches everything in my closet which is a pretty awesome if you ask me. This scarf is beautifully crafted and I’m thrilled to share the story behind it when I get compliments … which is all the time.

Even better than my getting compliments, is the fact that Marisa and fashionABLE are giving away a beautiful scarf to one of you! And, the most fun part of this giveaway … the scarf is going to be a mystery! This is probably a good thing because if you’re anything like me you’d have a really hard time picking just one! Enter below and spread the word about fashionABLE!

… Oh so many ways to follow along …
