We are ending January in the DFW with perfect weather: SUNNY&&75. I honestly can't get enough of this sunshine. It has been the perfect week to start spring a little early, and whip out my Luxe Tank Dress that I got from Ethos Collection

Seek Wander Share

#SeekWanderShare


We are getting ready to go back to Uganda for our camp with Reaction Tour later this month. Being able to travel with Reaction Tour has given me some perspective and a real view of the poverty that exists in this world today. Every time I visit areas that have large amounts of underprivileged communities I am reminded why Narrow Collective is so essential! We get to share companies and products that all have one common purpose. And that purpose is to make a positive impact on the world! With that in mind, we are sharing a new brand with you today that just launched this year! 

Seek Wander Share is an ethically-sourced shop that is made up of a collection of handmade pieces for your every day girl. I love my pink scarf and bracelet set, sourced from Guatemala. (Guatemala has a happy place in my heart) It is a versatile set that will add a pop of color to any outfit!

Seek Wander Share partners with artisan groups around the globe and employs them to create products in their collection for a fair wage. At Seek Wander Share modern meets tradition. The artisans use their traditional craftsmanship and processes to craft products that are modern and relevant.


This might just make the PERFECT gift this Holiday Season! Especially with our 15% discount. Code: SWS15 [valid through Dec. 31]

 

Cambio Market

Cambio Market is an online boutique for handmade and ethically sourced products. Whether they're selling recycled cards made by former victims of sex trafficking, jewelry made from upcycled T-shirts, or vegan hair accessories to help species at risk - every purchase supports their social enterprise partners and gives back to a social cause!! You name the issue, they probably have product helping that need. Here are a couple of our favorites that we are featuring:

 
 

 
 

 I love the difference in impact between these products. Especially the fact that one that is helping over in the Philippines and the other right here on our own soil. It makes "making a difference" so convenient.

 

These greeting cards are sold by Good Paper across North America, but they are actually made in the Philippines by 80 women who have been pulled out of the sex trade. These women are a part of The Paper Project. Their goal is to give former victims of sex trafficking in the Philippines an opportunity to use their skills to make an income for themselves in dignified work. Love the work that these groups are doing for the ladies in the Philippines!

Do us a favor, and show them some love- buy your Mother's Day Card from Cambio Market

AMERICAN NOMAD: Discover Authinetic Style

AMERICAN NOMAD is the perfect place to shop for a wide variety of beautiful products that you know, without a doubt, are impacting underprivileged communities around the world.

Each item on their site is handmade by artisans from all around the world. [India, Kenya, Ethiopia, Bangladesh, United States, Ecuador... Ok you get it.]  When you search the pages of products you can see where each piece was handcrafted. Everything, from the lounge-wear to the home decor, is made by artisans who are working in various cooperatives striving to beat poverty, overcome discrimination and allow for skill development. When you click on a product, you can read a bit about the history of who created it and how the work and skill development from that piece has impacted the community. 

 

We love our vase and bowl we found on AMERICAN NOMAD! These are a product of Nkuku sent over just in time from American Nomand for the rennovations in our office! This co-op aims to develop the traditional skills of the artisans in various communities. These people have amazing skills! However, on their own they have little opportunity to use their skills to make a living. Nkuku brings the work of these artisans to new markets and retail channels, and that is EXACTLY how we found these great pieces! Two claps for AMERICAN NOMAD
