The Only The Brave Foundation was created in 2008 as the not-for-profit organization of the group OTB with the mission to rebalance social inequality and contribute to the sustainable development of less advantaged areas and people throughout the world. It currently spearheads most of the group’s corporate social responsibility initiatives


“A Special Bag” is a solidarity project featuring a series of limited edition handbags, designed by creative directors of the different brands that comprise the OTB group (Maison Margiela, Marni, Paula Cademartori, Dsquared2, Diesel e Just Cavalli), and created using the textile waste of each respective brand. The manufacture of the handbags was then entrusted to “D-Hub”, a charity organization with the mission  to support the emancipation of disadvantaged women – in particular young mothers, through specific traineeships helping them acquire new skills, but more than anything, a new awareness of themselves. Make a purchase for a good cause, proceeds will support D-Hub and women in need. Bags are availble exclusively on  www.farfetch.com
