Announcement   FROM PIECES · MADE WHOLE

Unshattered is a nonprofit social enterprise. We're providing pathways toward sustained sobriety and economic independence for women who are winning their fight against addiction.

Our gorgeous bags and accessories are handmade from repurposed materials as a tangible representation of the transformation occurring in the lives of our artists. Our materials range from fabrics donated by premium manufacturers, to leather coats, to retired military uniforms.

Have an heirloom piece you'd like to transform into something useful? We do custom bags for men and women.

In 2014 and 2015 we returned 100% of our sales revenue to the Walter Hoving Home which is a residential, spiritually-based recovery center serving women ages 18 and over who have been involved in drug addiction, alcoholism, prostitution, and other life-controlling problems.

We enable women in recovery to see and know the value they can bring to the world by creating beauty and purpose out of shattered lives and discarded things.

Love the fabrics! I keep having to buy more of your bags because mine are often going home with family and friends who love them too :)

Just as pictured. A surprise for a friend whose son leaves for West Point this summer. The fact that it was made by loving hands of women starting a new chapter in their lives makes it more special. Plan to get it monogrammed.

Wonderfully made. This will be the perfect toiletry kit bag. I love this ministry, these women and the fabulous bags. Such high quality. This is my second purchase. I bought the cadet gray bag for a gift for Christmas and I just loved it, so I needed one for myself!

Unshattered is the social enterprise arm of the Walter Hoving Home. The Home is a 12 month recovery program in which women are rebuilding their lives that have been shattered by addiction.

The women of Unshattered make bags and accessories out of repurposed materials. Each bag is handmade by a woman who is winning her fight against addiction through God’s grace and redemption.

Our goals are to 1) build employment and job skills for women recovering from addiction and 2) return 100% of our proceeds to the Home which is run solely on donations and fundraising.

The Walter Hoving Home/Unshattered is a 501c3 non-profit which is rated 4 stars by Charity Navigator.

Our bags are a tangible representation of what is happening in these women's lives: something worn-out, discarded and purposeless transformed into something meaningful, beautiful and purposeful.

    I believe in the women of Unshattered more than any group of women I've ever known. Seeing their transformation as they move beyond addiction and the joy they get when someone buys their work is amazing. Thank you for believing in them with me.
