Anna Welsh, littlebags.BIGIMPACT

Some entrepreneurs work around their day jobs while they build their businesses. Anna Welsh must work around school and homework. Just 13 years old, Anna is CEO of a thriving company that combines fashion, recycling and philanthropy.  

“I handmake bags from recycled materials, and I donate 15% of proceeds to Tree House Books, which provides free books to kids in Philadelphia,” says Anna, a graduate of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy, a national program that helps young adults find their passion and create businesses.   

Anna has been sewing since age six, but her business idea wasn’t born until 2016 when she made three clutch bags for her mom. Soon, strangers were asking where her mom got the bags. They were astounded when they heard the answer.

Today, Anna’s company, littlebags.BIGIMPACT, is churning out eye-catching clutches, mini-clutches, sunglass cases and more from fabric that would otherwise be thrown out. In just two years, she has recycled over 1,000 pounds of fabric and donated enough money to purchase 1,000 books for children in need.     

Come see Anna on September 22 from 10AM – 4PM at McConkey’s Market in Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA).

“I always remember my mom sewing, and at a very young age she taught me,” Megan says. “By the time I was in high school I was sewing quilts, clothes and even an 1880s reproduction ball gown. I’ve always loved vintage and historical fashion, so creating clothes with vintage style was a natural progression for me.”
