Los Angeles based designer Tina Tangalakis touched down in Ghana unaware of the changes that would occur. As a volunteerand teacher at the Happy Kids Orphanage, Tina met localseamstress, Beatrice Agabe. The two quickly bonded over theirshared love of design and passion to improve the lives of others.It was there, in the vibrant village of Hohoe, among the scraps of fabric, rough pencil designs and long conversations between two unlikely friends that Della was born.
Tina’s premier design, her Classic Hobo, is the cornerstone of the Della collection. As functional as it is beautiful, the Classic Hobo’s design is constructed with Ghana’s stunning local textiles. Each purse is handmade in Beatrice’s workshop by economically vulnerable women working under Beatrice’s mentorship. The sale of every bag has a positive e!ect on the people of Hohoe. Tina’s intention behind Della is to provide jobs and education to the community, while bringing awareness of Hohoe’s struggle to the Western World.
