"Vans joins hands with Della, a socially-responsible LA-based company employing more than 50 women in the developing villages of Ghana, West Africa. Specializing in handcrafted, one-of-a-kind textiles made with sustainable materials from the region, every purchase of a Della product helps provide jobs, skills training, weekly literacy classes, money management workshops, social security, and healthcare benefits. The Vans X Della collection offers six models featuring colorful Della fabrics perfect for the spring season. Each pair will be one-of-a-kind." Vans
"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 driven by awareness of the need for a global market that provides socially-responsible, quality products. We are not a charity; we are a business done – and doing – "right." Della
