The Tote Project is based on a friendship, on a shared dream. It is a shared passion for empowerment, for restoration, for freedom. Fay Grant and Michelle Chavez founded The Tote Project because they believe that there is hope for the millions of victims of modern day slavery worldwide, and they want to do their part to support recovering survivors pursuing their dreams.
The Tote Project’s fair trade products are sewn in India by women who have made the choice to journey out of the sex trade and into freedom. Additionally they donate 20% of their profits to Two Wings to help survivors of human trafficking in the United States pursue their dreams. Each tote has a card tucked inside that lists the signs of modern day slavery and the number to call if you encounter a victim.
