CASTELLANO, a London based, ethical fashion brand has achieved initial target goal of £10.000 in the first 24 hours for an ethnic backpack that supports and preserves indigenous hand craftsmanship and provides direct jobs to more than 250 women in Colombia.
Austin, TX – November 16th 2016 – (SMWire™) – Daniela Castellanos, 27, a young social Colombian entrepreneur, is aiming to raise £50K or more
in 30 days. Her innovation is an ethical backpack, which takes around 20 days to make using solely handmade, fine crochet techniques and soft leather. This piece not only preserves Colombian heritage, it supports women from the Wayuu community in La Guajira Colombia who live with limited access to electricity, water and food.
Daniela’s story and journey as a social entrepreneur has been covered by Forbes and the Huffington post.
Recently Daniela was recognized by Cosmopolitan UK as one of “7 Young
women doing amazing things to empower others”.
