This is the perfect gift for the soccer player on your list.  Hayworth Athletic, led by Austin-based CEO & Founder Justin Lea, makes beautiful hand stitched soccer balls. What we love most, though, is the fact that this company is empowering women in Mongui, Colombia. These women are known to be some of the best stitchers in the world, but jobs are hard to find in this rural developing community. Hayworth Athletic hires these women and pays them middle class wages to make these match-quality soccer balls. The ballmakers make each ball with pride because they are treated with respect and honored with worthy pay. $95
