They're quite the power couple. For the past five years, Kate Spade New York and Women for Women International have teamed up to provide women in war-torn areas (such as Kosovo, Rwanda, and Afghanistan) with sustainable employment. Through Hand in Hand Partnership, skilled female artisans create one-of-a-kind accessories based on designs by Kate Spade New York President and Creative Director Deborah Lloyd and earn fair wages in return.

The latest collection features limited-edition smartphone, tablet, and cold-weather accessories knitted by disenfranchised Bosnian women. With the money they make from producing the line, the women are able to help rebuild their communities and make a living for their families. Forget the crystal-encrusted and Hello Kitty covers—mix your high-tech with something hand-knit for a true world connection. (Available exclusively at Kate Spade through August 21.)
