MY BEACHY SIDE is designed for altruist customers who are mindful of what they buy. They create hand knitted beach accessories and provide steady jobs for underprivileged yet talented women around the world. Each of the artisans behind their accessories has a story: disadvantaged, unemployed, and in some cases victims of domestic violence.

MY BEACHY SIDE works with local NGOs to employ hundreds of women—some living in Southeastern Turkey near the Syrian border. Lowest in OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development), Turkey employs only about 30% of its female population outside the home. The brand giving both Syrian refugees and Turkish women opportunities to better their lives.
