Annaïse Tote Bag®

2020 is a year of change that has shaken the world in all aspects of life. In this photograph, Racky layers the biography of Malcom X that she had from her library above model Annaïse to reinforce and remind the history and legacy of today’s new wave social justice. Although, this is a revelation for many, empowering the black community has been a long overdue diligence for the world.

We are proud to introduce the Annaïse Tote Bag with all profits will be donated to the Black Healing Fund @black.healing.fund, an inspiring volunteer-run initiative that exist to provide Black Folks in the Tio’tia:ke/Montréal area with discretionary funding and resources that contribute to mental health and wellness.

The photograph of Annaïse is accompanied by a powerful declaration of women written by Maycie St-Louis.
