Gaia + WestPack Clutch

Gaia + WestPack Clutch


This is the collaboration between WestPack and Gaia. A special collaboration between two companies with a heart for turning adversity into opportunity. Hallie Swope of WestPack and Paula Minnis of Gaia Empowered Women have a shared passion for people and fashion and bringing the two together. This is the story of WestPack. It is the story of a family that is dedicated to searching the world for artisans that stand for something and products that are fresh, innovative, and – most importantly- relevant to you.


Gaia creations are handmade by resettled refugee women living in Dallas, Texas, using artisan-made, vintage & sustainable materials. Our mission is to empower refugee women through empowerment, encouragement, & dedication to their long-term success in our own local communities. Through a living wage & continued training & development, our goal is to lead each woman to financial independence & self-sufficiency. By unlocking a woman’s potential, we hope to help build a brighter future for herself, her children, & her community as a whole.
