Who are we?
Della is a Los Angeles based fashion line that is changing the way people shop. We are a woman-owned and woman-run business working directly with a community in West Africa, providing jobs, education and skills training to our employees. We are not a charity, we are a business done right.
Della was founded by former fashion stylist, Tina Tangalakis, after a trip to Ghana turned into a lifelong decision to help better the livelihood of local women. We produce a growing line of accessories that literally Carry Change; all of our products are made of completely vegan and sustainable materials. Each product is made with authentic West African textiles, and is carefully handcrafted by a seamstress working in the village of Hohoe.
What is our message?
We want people to rethink the way they shop. Della brings socially conscious consumerism to the forefront of the retail market.
Every dollar earned at Della goes toward providing employment, education and financial stability for poverty stricken women in Ghana. Our women receive a steady, fair income and are empowered through education in micro financing, savings, entrepreneurship classes. Our goal is to empower our women so that they will one day take the opportunities Della has provided them with and turn them into a lasting, better way of life.
