Our story = our artisans' stories, which chronicle the courage and determination required to invest in oneself.
In rural Honduras, young people are often pulled out of school before 6th grade in order to support their farming-focused family. Although it feels impossible to imagine, it tells of a worldwide reality.
Through Lazarus Academy, students receive three years of vocational training while obtaining their high school education. When they graduate, they have a marketable skill they can use to support themselves and their families for years to come. The students who choose leatherwork as their vocational training path can get a job making leather goods at our leather studio. 100% of the profits from sales of our beautiful leather goods go back into this program to support our artisans.
All finishes are high quality. This is a handmade leather item, and by nature, there are variations in color and markings, adding to the unique character of each product.
People matter and so do their stories.
