Today, March 8, is International Women’s Day. We founded The Little Market with the mission of empowering women around the world by bringing their beautiful goods to a wider audience. We are so excited to add these candy-striped bags from Guatemala to our collection, because each bag sold helps a talented woman in Guatemala earn a fair wage. By providing steady employment, these bags are more than just beautiful accessories. They can be the key to helping a woman reach opportunities that millions of women before her may not have had. So make a difference, by thinking globally and shopping for change.

These bags are my go-to for all my essentials, because they are beautiful and functional. The tote bags are a great accessory for the beach or brunch, while the travel bags are perfect for carrying cosmetics, jewelry, and everything in between.
Each bag is handmade by a Mayan weaver in the highlands of Guatemala.
Each artisan who makes these bags is provided with opportunities for scholarships, skills training, home improvements, and microlending programs.
This playful striped bag is perfect for cosmetics and other essentials when you’re on the go.
