Our solidarity project in collaboration with the Vicente Ferrer Foundation
ALMA, a symbol of how we apply EMPOWERMENT and DEVELOPMENT of women at BIBA.
It was born from our collaboration with the Vicente Ferrer Foundation with their workshops in Anantapur (India). Alma is a cloth doll made by women who suffer triple discrimination: being a woman, belonging to the 'parias', the lowest caste, and having some kind of physical or psychological disability. It is included in all our BIBA bags.
THE ALMA DOLL: The dolls are manufactured in the Vicente Ferrer Foundation workshops located in Andhra Padresh, India.
THE CAUSE: The women who live in these workshops suffer triple discrimination: being women, coming from the lowest castes and for suffering some type of physical or psychological disability.
HIS POETRY: The name of the doll reflects the soul of the initiative.
The dolls can also be purchased independently in our stores. It is our way of making our guests and friends part of this initiative without linking it exclusively to the purchase of our products.
