Rags2Riches Inc., an artisan-focused enterprise based in the Philippines. Rags2Riches started as a specific solution to a specific social problem of inequality and unfair trade. It was built to be an ally and a business partner of rag pickers and artisans who were victims of unscrupulous middlemen. Today it has evolved into a sustainable platform, a life and livelihood partner for artisans to get out of poverty. We have trained 900 community artisans and we create sustainable livelihood for them through creating with them fashion and home accessories made out of upcycled scrap cloth, organic and indigenous materials found in some of the 7,107 islands of the Philippines. We provide our artisans with access to the most sought after designers of the country and of the world, access to the local and international market, and access to training and education.
