“leaving this world a little better than we found it”abury.net
ABURY combines traditional techniques with avant-garde design in their collection of bags, scarves, jewelry and home goods like wool throws and wooden stools.
A multifaceted organization, they bring together up-and-coming designers scouted from around the world to cultivate a collaborative environment where new products are born and presented to the international market. They have also established the ABURY Foundation, a charity that provides free education and promotes intercultural exchange. Every ABURY product sold contributes directly to delivering social services in communities where the products are made, leading to over 100,000 hours of education so far. 50% of the profits from their site are re-invested in the charity, and all employees also donate 10% of their time volunteering for the foundation.
ABURY is credited by the German UNESCO Commission (a branch of the United Nations) as preserving crafts and supporting people’s traditional knowledge and skills to create a more prosperous future. They have been nominated multiple times in the Independent Handbag Awards.
