Lovely Little Fair Trade Bowls!

We are so smitten with these pretty Eva Hand Painted Bowls (Available at Greenheart & Seven Hopes United):

“These charming bowls look so pretty on display. Each one is hand painted by crafts people from Kashmir, providing employment for these skilled artisans in their own homes. Use them for snacks and nibbles or just for decoration.”

Ohh…we just lurve the hand-painted detail of the wee birdies.

Super cute and so chic.  Plus, you can purchase hand-painted cups, jugs, and trays to match (Available at Seven Hopes United; Cups and Jugs Also Available at Greenheart):

Peace and Love,

What Your Jewelry Box Is Missing: Seven Hopes United’s Long African Trade Bead Necklace

So pretty!  And such a great staple piece!  Who doesn’t love a necklace that can go with…well, almost anything?

Plus, not only is this charming necklace Fair Trade, but it also carries a special history:

In the days of the caravan, trade beads offered a means of exchange that could be used across Africa, even in remote locales.

Crafted from clays, metals and glass, African trade beads are collected around the world, appreciated for their color and intricate craftsmanship. Our trade bead necklace pulls together a variety of new and old African trade beads in a necklace that looks great alone or stacked.

Doesn’t it look fabulous on?:

We are in necklace love!  Definitely a strong piece to add to your collection.

Peace and (Necklace) Love,

Your Fair Trade Trendsters
