MZW Gives Back program will benefit the Foyer
Oct 10, 2019

MZ Wallace has partnered with the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation to create a tote bag featuring the iconic typeface that Josef Albers designed for the Bauhaus. 100% of the net proceeds of its sale will benefit Le Foyer de Tambacounda, enabling more girls to live there while attending local high schools.

Adorned with one of Josef Albers’s dictums, “Good teaching is more a giving of right questions than a giving of right answers,” the bag also includes two pouches, one of which features an Anni Albers quote: “Students worry about choosing their way. I always tell them, ‘You can go anywhere from anywhere.'”

Monica Zwirner, a cofounder and designer at MZ Wallace said, “Empowering women has always been important to our philosophy of giving back to the community, whether on a local or global scale. Ensuring that women have access to an education, and the opportunities that arise from it, is an impactful way to put this philosophy into action. We are thrilled to partner with The Josef & Anni Albers Foundation to support Le Korsa.”
