ABLE IS

Moving Fashion

Forward

Our mission is to create go-to wardrobe pieces that empower both the women who wear them and the women who make them.

 

 

How We Started

We found ourselves in the fashion industry, somewhat accidentally, when we began selling scarves that were handwoven by a few women in Ethiopia who were coming out of the commercial sex industry. Our mission was to provide sustainable jobs for these women so they could create a better future for themselves and their families. Over 4,000 scarves were purchased in two months, and we saw tangible proof that where you spend your money (especially in fashion) has the power to make a meaningful impact. A spark was ignited within our customers who recognized that if you’re serious about solutions to poverty, then you must do two things: create jobs, and do so for women. Customers purchasing and sharing about the impact of pieces they’re wearing is what has carried the ABLE mission forward to what it is today.

 

 

Where We Are Today

We have grown in our mission to empower women with the expansion of both our product categories and location of impact. We are clothing women from head to toe in thoughtfully designed pieces that reflect who she really is: creative, strong, important, worthy, ABLE. Our high-quality leather goods, handmade jewelry, apparel, denim, and shoes aren't just investment pieces for your wardrobe, they are an investment in women around the world. Our two-pronged approach to partnering with vendors includes coming alongside new businesses to help them create better opportunities from the ground up, as well as coming alongside existing, larger scale businesses to support how they’re paving the way in the industry. We are proud to have partnerships in Ethiopia, Brazil, Mexico, China, India, Portugal, and in our own backyard of Nashville, Tennessee.

 

 

Our Mission

Women comprise more than 90% of our staff at ABLE, but globally they often hold the lowest-paid, least-secure jobs. We have seen firsthand how providing women with safe and dignified jobs has the power to change not only their families but entire communities. The more we can support women with jobs, especially women who have overcome extraordinary circumstances and often lack opportunity, the greater impact we will have. That's why we intentionally partner with vendors who share our same mission and vision, but we can’t do it without you and the impact your purchase makes.

As we continue empowering women through fashion, we hope you'll stick around for the journey and join us in Moving Fashion Forward through your purchases. Our favorite part of making an impact on women around the globe is getting to do it with you. Thank you for being here.

 

Our Responsibility

We are here for you! Not only do we thoughtfully design specifically for you, we are constantly brainstorming new and innovative ways to improve your experience at ABLE.

Our product design, materials, manufacturing, and lifetime guarantee reflect our dedication to decreasing our impact on the environment.
