American actress Scarlett Johansson has designed a handbag for Spanish fashion chain Mango in a charity initiative to aid victims of the Haiti earthquake.
Johansson’s Haiti handbag will be distributed in all Mango stores worldwide from March 2010. All profits will be donated to INTERMÓN-OXFAM, which is helping victims of the disaster.
The Haiti handbag retails at £16.90 and will be exclusively available in more than 1,390 Mango stores.
Scarlett Johansson, who is the face of Mango, has designed a print on the handbag to represent the ancient cartography of Haiti. It contains the message “Supporting the people of Haiti” written and signed by the actress.
Johansson said: “I’m thrilled to be collaborating with Mango to promote conscious consumerism and to benefit Oxfam’s Haiti Earthquake Response Fund. By purchasing this bag, which I specially designed, you are helping to provide life-saving assistance like clean water to the people of Haiti.”
