Excellence Magazine is particularly proud of the results achieved by Eileen Akbaraly included in the nominations for her Made for a Woman project. Our magazine awarded the young entrepreneur, during the Gala evening dedicated to the Green Awards in 2020, for the Sustainable Fashion category.

explains the publisher Nicola Sangiorgio.

The Made for a Woman project was born with the aim of improving the lives of vulnerable women in developing countries by allowing them to express themselves through the art of weaving. Made for a Woman is a luxury accessories brand founded in 2019 among the bright colors of Madagascar, a garden of Eden where people live in misery, often on less than € 1 a day.

To honor Eileen Akbaraly for the consistency and dedication she is showing in carrying out such a great project, we dedicate our photo gallery to her creations.
