Enter sustainable and fair-traded textile company Proud Mary. The passion child of humanitarian Harper Poe, the company provides exquisite products made by the intricate hands of indigenous textile artisans from around the world. Proud Mary’s mission is anchored in their motto, “Pride not Pity.” The company works in Mali, West Africa, Guatemala, Morocco, Peru, and Niger with both women’s cooperatives and male artisans who hand paint, pattern, and weave their specially made baskets, pillows, dresses, and bottle openers.
