Item of the Week: Hasso

{image source 1, 2, 3}

Hasso is a Columbian company run by two young guys who are as obsessed with detailing and quality as we are (probably more).  Not only do they design and sell incredibly sophisticated garments but they specialize in accessories as well.  They have everything from satchels, backpacks, ipod cases, laptop cases and the list goes on.  Also, everything is made my master artisans in Bogota, Columbia.  Cool huh?

Tie in Some Justice

AOL featured an article of things you just HAD.TO.HAVE.  I thought I would just judge for myself and lo and behold they DID have something YOU can’t live without.  FIGS is a company that specializes in neckties and helping children in developing countries get school uniforms.  For every tie that you purchase a school uniform goes to a child in a developing country who is ready to go to school but can’t afford the required clothing.   (BTW the owner/founder Heather Hasson used to work for Gucci so she KIND OF knows what she is doing in the design department!)  Check it out and help a child in need.
