While upholding the traditions of Akris in fabric development, printing and sophisticated embroidery, this collection was brought to life in the spirit of “Pure Freude”, meaning Great Joy.
Each year, Akris will celebrate Women with Purpose with a new accessory, a Symbol of Purpose, and a portion of sales will be donated to a chosen charity. This year will benefit Kinderstern e. V., a nonprofit organization dedicated to projects for children in need.
Celebrate the Women with Purpose in your life with this year's Kinderstern charm. Wear one with pride and share with those you cherish.
