Bags are an extension of your personality. Their style and materials sort of represent who you are and what you are. Like canvas bags which are commonly sported by college students, faux leather bags by vegans, and “it bags” that represent a person’s status in the society. So next time you’re going to buy a new bag, choose wisely. It’s more than just a calling card of stylish flair at your fingertips.

Speaking of bags that represents, I recently discovered an online handbag brand called Angela & Roi which was founded on the belief that fashion can be fused with philanthropy. Founders Angela and Roi Lee believe they can use their resources productively in a way to impact the greater community. They promise to donate a portion of each sale to contribute to chosen non-profit organizations specializing in prevalent health issues.

They have five limited styles of handbags from totes, shoulder to cross-body bags which are all vintage-inspired with contemporary twist, made of vegan leather and fabric materials. Those handbags are also available in various colors with A & R signature ribbon which both represent a health issue to increase its awareness.

They have a mission called Donate by Color” where a portion of the proceeds of a single handbag sold will be donated to a chosen non-profit health organization which the color of the handbag represents. For example, when customers purchase a pink handbag then five dollars will automatically be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
