Did you know Ethiopia is the largest producer of livestock in Africa, and one of the top ten worldwide? They've been exporting leather and precious spices since the days of the Pharaohs, and Parker Clay is tapping into that market, rendering exquisite leather accessories out of hand-picked, high-quality leather. Their values say it best: Ruthless focus on the details. Take no shortcuts. Use the best global partners. Be vigilantly creative. Bring high fashion down to earth.
Founders Ian and Brittany Bentley actually moved to Ethiopia to lead this organization and work side by side with the women they're serving.

- The Good Factor: Parker Clay works with vulnerable women in Ethiopia, creating jobs and providing opportunities for these women to support themselves and their families. They have partnered closely with Women at Risk, a non-profit organization that has been helping women in Ethiopia for 18 years through rehabilitation, counseling, and skills training. Together, Parker Clay and Women at Risk have been able to successfully lift women out of prostitution and walk alongside them as they heal and move forward.
