It’s safe to say that most of us take clean water for granted.
If we take a shower, we expect clean water. If we take a sip from the water fountain, we expect clean water. If we go to the grocery store to buy bottled water, we expect it to be clean. For those around the world that are less fortunate, clean water is a luxury that isn’t readily available.
United Kingdom brand Mahi Leather is stepping in by manufacturing made-to-order leather goods and donating $1.50 of each sold item to FRANK Water, a UK based charity that has helped over 300,000 people gain access to clean water since 2005. It’s their mission to connect consumers with craftsmen, offer unmatched value, and hopefully do some good along the way.
Mahi Leather believes that consumers are always dealt the short hand of the stick from high-end stores and designer brands. The process of making and moving the product from one middleman to the other results in the final price for consumers being much higher than it is actually worth. This means higher prices for you and poor value for your money. Mahi Leather eliminates these problems by removing the middleman and making every item they manufacture made-to-order. This business concept reduces waste and lowers the cost. If this model was an equation it would be: Made-to-order + good cause – middlemen – excess inventory = Huge savings for you, the consumer. It’s easy math.
Every Mahi Leather bag or good is made with soft leather, durable brass accents, and quality YKK zippers. Their bags are built to last, sit comfortably over your shoulder or in hand, and are great for commuters, students, and travelers. It only takes one day to make your bag and four days to reach its destination.
Another great offer from Mahi Leather is personalization. They offer custom embroideries in three colorways for their black and brown bags. For any brown bag you choose, you can embroider your initials in a black, brown, or cream color. For black bags, you can choose black, grey, or white. It takes an extra two days to manufacture, but it’s totally worth it to have a bag with your name on it.
Mahi Leather teamed up with Frank Water to make cleaning water available to those less fortunate in India. Mahi Leather takes it’s name from the Mahi River in western India. For many in India, the Mahi River is a sacred waterway. Its significance is more than symbolic, and that’s why Mahi Leather has made it their mission to make a difference. If you would like to join Mahi Leather in their support of Frank Water, you can buy a bag or you can support them directly through their website.
