Check out Indego's new brightly colored, swampgrass bracelets ($20) and woven banana leaf bangles ($10) made from recycled materials by women artisan co-ops in Rwanda. I just put in my order for the stack!
Her smartly designed line of jewelry, bags and clutches are exploding onto the scene at these fine stores: Shop Laltitude, The New Museum, The International Center for Photography and Arcadia Boutique.
Bookmark their lightweight, Infinity scarves ($58), Mariposa necklace ($78) made from coconut shells and tagua and their felt Lola Hat($68). I've just seen their new lookbook for spring and I'm hoping to get first dibs!
My IOU Project Men's Real Madras Blazer ($169) is one of my wardrobe staples! Check out all the fabulous products and meet the person who made them through their website! The Vegetable Wash Skinny Jean($85) is on my wish list this holiday.
My brocade & leather trim Weekender Travel bag ($225) is perfect for getaways to the beach or a visit to the parents' house for the holidays. The contrast Guatemalan textile lining is a nice surprise detail when you open the bag. Love the dip dye pillows($50)! They'll be a perfect fit on my daybed. I just got my hands on a new dip dyed clutch which I will be rockin' this spring!
Her burlap, leather & tropical wood clutches($280) are awesome!
Founder, Zane Wilemon, has been creating holistic and sustainable change in a village called Maai Mahiu, Kenya since 2000. Their L.I.F.E. totes bags ($12)are also made there. I love my HOPE Campaign bag!
