For the entire month of March, Etienne Aigner will be donating 10% of all proceeds from EtienneAigner.com to Womankind in honor of International Women's Day, so that they can help communities heal from trauma and violence.
Etienne Aigner is a handbag and leather accessories brand founded in New York City known for quality, craftsmanship, and heritage. As an immigrant himself, Mr. Aigner was born in Hungary, trained in Paris, and moved to New York to open his showroom in 1959.
“I’ve lived in poverty and in wealth, in three different cultures on two different continents. I’ve survived two world wars, forced to flee for my very life by the Nazis, and endured what might have been fatal physical conditions plus numerous arrays of disappointments and setbacks. Still, under every sort of condition, happiness was within my grasp. And when absolutely everything seemed to be going wrong, my conviction that one must never give up gave me the strength to go on. I believe this philosophy can work for anyone, and as a result, what seems to be adversity can be turned into advantage, and then triumph." - Etienne Aigner
As we celebrate our 60th anniversary this year, Etienne Aigner is happy to announce our support for Womankind's services for survivors of gender-based violence and for the immigrant community.
