It seems natural these days to connect fashion with a great cause. Wren & Roch’s authentic message of empowerment and giving back has meaning beyond the text written on the pages of their beautiful website.
The mission of Wren & Roch luxury handbags (pronounced “Ren & Rock”) is to empower victims and survivors of rape, domestic violence, and childhood sexual assault by raising awareness, eliminating stigmas and educating for the prevention of abuse.
These ladies are not just fantastic handbag designers, they are “higher purpose” driven seeking justice for victims and survivors of sexual assault thru the power of their voice and own personal experiences. Karen and Laura are the epitome of elegance, talent, and grace. This power duo is unstoppable on their journey.
If you ask them, they would tell you this, “Wren and Roch”is what they were meant to do, using fashion as their platform to tell their story, to be survivors, not victims, to raise awareness and actively advocate to end abuse and to make the world a better place. Can the purchase of a handbag really change a life? We believe it can.
At the intersection of high fashion and giving back, each Wren & Roch handbag, proudly made in New York City. Inspired by courageous and resilient women, the brand’s meticulous attention to detail and versatile designs unite a rich combination of sultry and chic, with a rebellious edge.
Wren & Roch encourages you to be confident, bold and strong and to carry your courage and a fabulous bag.
