JoyBound Apparel Sucre Clutch

How often do we stop to think about what goes into the things we buy?  Who made it and why?  The why may seem simple: for profit.  But, what if it was done at the expense of someone else?  If we knew the truth, how many of the things we wear would we be proud to own if we knew what went into it?

JoyBound Apparel is one such brand.  It's name alone conveys it's mission.  Intention.  Optimism.  Empowerment.  Started by Mia Eliza, a wife and mother, determined to inspire others to seek joy in everyday life, her line reminds you to take deeper look at life and beauty.  

Inspired during a missions trip in Bolvia, Mia collaborates with local artisans to make this lovely clutch.  Made with beautiful handwoven aguayo fabric, I love how it's helping women across the world earn a fair wage; a portion of sales also supports a number of charities.  And the quality is better than things I've seen in the store.  It's a piece that's more than just a fashion statement.  It's a piece that reminds me to make the most of every moment, to seek joy, to share joy, to choose joy.

I began following Mia and JoyBound Apparel on Instagram over a year ago when it was just beginning, and it's been amazing to watch her small company grow.  With new products, including the launch of "Abode," a home decor line recently featured in West Elm (popup shop here and here), this is only the beginning for a brand I can say I'm proud to wear.  Rooted in equity and philanthropy, sharing joy through opportunity and style.

  1. I checked out the website when I saw your post on instagram and fell in love with the floor pillows. I'm waiting for one to come back into stock. It'll be perfect in my office and my room.

    1. I'll be waiting for one too, in the blue/neutral color. :-)
