beyondBeanie is a social fashion brand dedicated to empowering artisans and helping children in need.
All our products are made with care and love by talented artisans in Bolivia who personally hand-sign each one of their creations, so you can know exactly who your purchases support.
Furthermore, every item helps children in need or children of the street. Example:
All our artisans are either women that have not had the chance to get an education, women that have been victims of abusive relationships and are now alone raising their children, or women that have had hardships through life and have found in beyondBeanie a way to get value for their work and, more importantly, as individuals.
At the moment, with the help of our supporters and retail partners, we are able to support 20+ artisans from the areas of La Paz and Cochabamba. You can meet our artisans through our artisans' page. You are more than welcome to visit them in Bolivia too if you ever get the chance to travel there.
We help children of disadvantaged backgrounds from child centers and rural communities where access to basics such as meals, dental care, and school supplies are very difficult, scarce, or expensive to afford.
To do this, we form direct ties with the organizations and communities that we support. Among our partners, we can highlight the Amanecer Child Center and the children of the rural and impoverished town of Punata, in the district of Cochabamba.
