What is Philo?
Philo is a contemporary line of leather handbags that offers key functional pieces befitting work and play. It is part of a multilayer project that stems from the concept of philanthropy; it is rooted in love, founded on solidarity, and designed for change.
Conceived as a brand with a purpose, Philo represents both a fashion and social statement - a tool not only to carry change, but to enact change. Philo’s core mission is to empower customers in their everyday, while supporting female entrepreneurship. A portion of proceeds goes toward providing business loans to intrepid women who wouldn’t otherwise have access to funds. Upon repayment, each loan gets reinvested into another proactive recipient, creating a cycle of giving and growing.To learn more about Philo, please visit our about page.
