What’s a trip without bringing home a few souvenirs?
These treasures from Colombia – a beautiful representation of the weaving done by indigenous women of the country – are adding so much life to our home … and my wardrobe.
The blue cross-body bag’s leather was stitched in Bogota but the colorful strap was woven by the Wayuu women who are known for their large bucket-style purses and skillful hamacas. The home accessories were made by women of the Waounan tribe in the department of Choco. The palm fibers used to create these beauties are woven so tightly that the vase piece we bought could hold water without leaking! Amazing.
The one store we loved unfortunately doesn’t have a website. Such a shame since their products were all so modern leaning and tastefully done and displayed. But, if you find yourself in Cartagena, their address and phone is below. If you’d like to shop for a vase of your own online, here are some shops that carry an assortment: one, two, three.
Centro, Callejon De Los Estribos
No. 2-40, Cartagena
’Tis the season for travel and one of the things that I struggle with the most while away is feeling like I never have the right bag for the occasion. Sometimes a girl needs a sassy clutch purse and other times she needs a comfy backpack for exploring all the better. Whatever the reason for the getaway, these bags top my wishlist for always being prepared. And of course, a little organizational help from Gin & Jacqie, a Malaysian accessories company with a passion for traveling well and tidy.
Hello, I hope you all had fabulous weekends. I spent a good part of it prepping for the big Anamu sale that begins TODAY!
Check out the updated Etsy shop for new $5 cuff bracelets and one-of-a-kind clutch purses starting at just $25! I’d love for all of the pieces to go to happy homes so please share the sale with your friends and family!
Friday brings good news for you Anamu accessories fans!
With my forthcoming move overseas I am cleaning house and need to have a HUGE Anamu MOVING SALE! Though it’s been a while since I’ve created anything new, I will be adding never before seen cuffs, frame clutch purses, and leather wristlet samples to the Etsy shop.
I’m slashing prices like crazy so you’ll be able to grab a piece of Anamu (and kind of like a piece of me ;)) for as little as $5; practically pennies for one-of-a-kind pieces!
The sale will begin on Monday, March 28 and run through Wednesday, March 30. Please tell your friends, family, your postman, anyone! Would love for these creations to find happy homes before I move.
See what’s currently online here and be ready to pounce come Monday. Have a joyous weekend!
