ABOUT. US

WELCOME to WORKSHOP/CoOp , the place to indulge your need for style while providing aid to women around the world. Think of us as shopping without guilt.

Founded in 2010 by Leslie Thomas and Sally Armbruster, our mission is to provide you with fabulous accessories made by artisan led cooperatives. These artisans not only ethically organize their fabrication and pricing structure, but they’re also paid fairly. This is really at the heart of what we do since a fair wage allows these women to feed their families, keep their children off the streets and literally change their communities. Pretty heady stuff, don’t you think?

BUT keeping our accessories fabulous is important to us too, which is why we’re always expanding the line with new products, different size bags and new color combinations. We’d love to hear your thoughts on our product gallery so send us an email at connect@theworkshopcoop.com .

WORKSHOP/CoOp bags can currently be found at several stylish boutiques as well as online. We also feature fun new products and exclusive designs through private trunk shows so let us know if you'd like to host one in your part of the world. It’s a great chance for us to get direct feedback from our customers and for you to join our team while doing the world some good. Not bad for a day’s work, don’t you think?
