Meet the Founder, Natul Middlebrook
Four years ago, I set out on a quest to give jobs to 8 former street boys in Haiti. Job creation for young orphaned men was a dream that God planted in my heart and I quickly learned that impossible things are possible when dreams grow legs.
And boy, did the dream grow legs! Today, we have 13 new teens in our transition program and 10 additional contract artisans. In addition, we’ve partnered with like-minded artisan groups to bring you more beautifully crafted accessories from which to choose.
We are especially excited about our new Home Collection that is a unique blend of neutral cotton with the urban metal that Haiti is famous for. We’ve taken a traditional folk art and transformed it into modern wall hangings that resonate a global feel.
We've come a long way and while we are within reach of creating hundreds of jobs —we know there is much work to do when it comes to equipping and empowering people living in under-resourced communities.
Thank you, friend, for believing in fashion that fuels change. We invite you to step foot into the HUGG Mission Market and see how beautiful shopping with purpose can be!
