Kite Pride
KitePride Is an Israeli fashion social enterprise based in Telavi owned by Israeli NGO Hope Center and German NGO GlowbalAct.  They create one-of-a-kind BAGS from up-cycled kitesurfing kite, sail, parachute and wetsuits to provide jobs for survivors of human trafficking and prostitution. Through each bag sold, continuous jobs are created, and fabric is saved from landfill. Every bag is designed, and sewn, by someone who has exited human trafficking and prostitution.  Each unique upcycled bag is sewn in a safe environment by these survivors. The business dream was to end human trafficking and forced prostitution.   http://kitepride.com
