It’s hard to believe that Christmas Eve is 10 days from today. Yowza! So, I wanted to highlight some more fair trade gifts before the timeline closes for Christmas delivery. Don’t forget, you have until this coming Friday, December 16, to order in time for Christmas Day delivery!
Don’t Forget to Shop Fair Trade!
Before I dive into some of the beautiful new fair trade bags we have for this holiday season, don’t forget our fair trade campaign, Divas4Divas, is still going strong! Divas4Divas is a campaign to inspire women to help other women by shopping fair trade.
The Divas4Divas website has a really comprehensive list of retailers who sell fair trade products made by women. So, shopping at any of these retailers means you’re helping change someone’s life for the better. These gifts are doing double duty!
Fair Trade Gifts to Consider
I have to say, the new bag designs we’ve gotten in for this holiday season are delectable. Not only are these bags fair trade made, but most are made with either hemp, organic cotton, or recycled silk. So, they’re sustainable as well! Here are a few more of my holiday favorites.
1. Red Sling Bag
I love the rusty red color of this cotton sling bag. We stonewashed the cotton to give it that ’80s textured look, and this is the kind of bag that you can wear and use everyday. Love it!
2. The Blue Hobo
So, you can probably sense a theme here. I’m infatuated with our stonewashed cotton bags, and this one is no different. I love the different shades of blues and greens in this bag, and the stonewashed cotton just adds to the rustic look of this hobo bag. You can find out more detail on The Blue Hobo here.
3. Recycled Silk Bag
First, sorry this picture isn’t as bold and beautiful (and big) as the others. It’s definitely one we need to retake!
I have this bag myself (you can see it here).
It. Is. Gorgeous. It’s made from recycled silk, and the colors are incredibly rich. This would make such a lovely gift for someone special because it’s beautiful, it’s fair trade made, and it was created with upcycled materials. I love it!
