Founded in 2007, this enterprise empowers women—most especially mothers—in Payatas, Quezon City by helping them convert their knowledge in making rags from fabric scraps to sewing wearable art and other fashionable garments. Reese Fernandez-Ruiz, its president and co-founder saw a huge opportunity to alter the lives of these women struggling to make ends meet when she and her fellow co-founders discovered how talented they are. By cutting out the middlemen in the age-old structure thus allowing the women to earn more money from their creations, as well as partnering with local designers to elevate the quality of the products, Rags2Riches has given these women and more in the succeeding years to thrive financially and creatively. "This not only meant higher wages," as stated on its website. "It meant a deeper sense of pride, self-worth, and empowerment."
