Joy Bryant Designs For Charity

Actress Joy Bryant has teamed up with purse aficionado Monica Botkier to create the Joy Braynt Satchel. Made of soft brown pebble leather and costing a whopping $575.00, the versatile summer carryall is actually three bags in one and is part of a collection of bags by Botkier whose profits benefit Oxfan of America, an international relief organization for which Bryant is an ambassador. “I am a Sister on the Planet for Oxfam. It’s an initiative engaging women of all walks of life to raise awareness about the environment. I hosted a cocktail party in N.Y.C. to talk about the work we are doing and Monica [Botkier] came and asked, ‘How can I be a part of this?’” said Bryant. “I love the notion of creating a product where your dollars are helping make someone’s life better.” Bryant is going to Tanzania later this year to educate farmers and coffee growers on sustainable farming methods . . . and, she says, “I can’t wait to show the women the bag—I hope they dig it!” The Joy Satchel is sold exclusively at


  1. I love big fat bags like that but even for charity, I still can’t afford it.
