Daphne, who was born in Peru, raised in St. Louis, and is a W. U. graduate, started creating a line of sustainably-made Peruvian leather handbag and accessory pieces  in 2018. She has recently added a winter collection of alpaca fleece and pima cotton clothing to her collection. The designer also donates a portion of her sales back to the Peruvian communities where her bags and clothing are made. Read more about Daphne and see more of her great-looking designs here.

In Arthur’s words: “Join me in welcoming the Central West End Farm’s new manager Lee Cagle. A long time CWE resident, Lee has been a farm volunteer and supporter for years. She is a @newcityschoolstl parent; her daughter Aiko participated in New City School’s farm’s program while in 4th grade. Among her many gifts, Lee @leeaikokai brings her joy, community building and a commitment to continue the farm’s mission to help feed the hungry in our community. Thank you Lee. May your dedication and service be richly rewarding.#cwe #joy#urbanfarm @nancyculbert @arthurculbert.”
