Annie O’s belts and bags are like embroidered jewel work. They are hand-crafted in Peru and support a women’s cooperative there. Annie O. works directly with these women to create modern accessories, and the belts and clutch bags use bright traditional designs — for example, cheerful pink flowers on turquoise, or multicolored flowers on a brown background — and all for a good cause! So feel stylish and distinctive while helping other women in the Southern Hemisphere![galleria]
