PACT Leather Goods: Handcrafting products with purpose

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new PACT store featuring handmade PACT Leather Goods belts!

The entire project has been in the works for a little over a year and has enlisted a youth workforce who’ve had the opportunity to learn valuable life and job skills along the way. It all started with an advanced PACTFashion spin-off class, where youth were given the opportunity to take leather classes at The Make Den Sewing School. From there, the most committed were offered a chance to earn a paycheque and hone their craft by making belts. Beautiful, good quality, handcrafted leather belts.

Meanwhile, a new PACT life & job skills program was underway – PACT Online Entrepreneur took teens through the process of starting, marketing and launching a new brand. An ongoing program, youth learn about branding, digital marketing and online commerce over 8-weeks, employable skills that are essential for anyone thinking of starting their own business.

Support a teen, buy a belt

PACT leather belts are available in black or mahogany, great for gals and guys. They’re made to last and actually become more supple, improving with age.
To support PACT, please make a purchase (they make great gifts!). Simply visit our web store to easily shop online. Shipping is free for the rest of 2016.

Teens, want to get involved in hands-on learning in fashion or online entrepreneurship? See our schedule and register for an upcoming eight-week session.
