Filson + Apolis Philanthropist Briefcase

filson-briefcase

Filson  and Apolis have partnered together to produce the Philanthropist Briefcase which uses cotton that was grown, milled, woven, and dyed in Uganda. The briefcase is then handcrafted at the Filson workshop in Seattle, Washington and would be perfectly suited for an urban commute.

The Apolis model of “Advocacy Through Industry” is a revolutionary way to harness the power of business to create social change. This model is founded on the simple idea that people can live better lives when they are given equal access to the global marketplace.

The Uganda Project is a micro-economic program employing formerly displaced Ugandans in the rebuilding of the once-strong Ugandan cotton business.

Price: $396 USD (Only available in black)
