Growing up in a home full of seamstress, I am so in love with this instagram page and the wonderful stories about the hardworking women who remind me of my mother and grandmother. I love the amazing work they are doing and the items are spectacular. Please stop, read and make sure to follow @shopelda: ————————————————————————————————–
@shopelda: Meet Mirlande. She’s a hardworking mother, seamstress, care giver, and a child of God. And she is one of the thirty seamstresses behind Elda. She has a contagious kind of giggly smile, and she pours out love and peace freely. When complimented on her perfect pleats, Mirlande would simply blush and shyly smile as she points to the sky exclaiming, “Grace a Dieu!” [thats creole for “Because of God!”] We are humbled by her sincere humility. With every purchase, like, sharing of a photo or story you do, you spread the story of these women’s God given gifts! Not to mention, by doing so you help to provide for every financial need too.

#HaitianGirlsRock: From the desk of @lindsmariephoto ————————-While in Haiti, a dream was realized. Elda, the mother of the Jean Marie orphanage in #Gonaives had been trying to start a workshop for 30 years! This past June, her sewing workshop had begun, as well as a career for 30+ #Haitian women. Including the three beauties you see above. My talented friends @angelineroseminnocci & @amandajjohnson12 organized this workshop to teach in Haiti for 2 weeks. They designed and cut patterns to bring. Along with hundreds of yards of fabric and six sewing machines. Then, 37 eager women created a brand @shopelda! Garments handmade in Haiti, sold here in the U.S. where total profit goes back to the makers.

📝 @shopelda: Laundry time. // hand washing a load of clothes SEEMS easy enough, right? Soak em in water, swoosh em around, wring it out and presto! Guess again. Thinking back to the mothers at the Good Samaritan Orphanage tirelessly and skillfully creating suds upon suds by scrubbing the fabric together between their knuckles. Sounds of laughter erupting from women & children alike at the sight of our team quite literally rubbing material together until our knuckles bled and our whole selves got soaked. Humbling it is, to learn how others do things, and amazing grace how sweet the sound when you get put on wringing duty!
