In addition to her thriving fashion label, Lauren Conrad is the co-founder of a growing global shop, The Little Market, which sells beautiful lifestyle accents, home décor, and fashion accessories made by artisans in developing nations. Today, Conrad gives us a look at her favorite pieces from The Little Market's collection of summer-ready handbags.
Sunscreen, sunglasses, and a towel are a few of my go-to essentials for a perfect beach day. My absolute favorite item of all is a great beach bag that fits everything. We recently added a colorful assortment of accessories from Madagascar to my fair trade shop, The Little Market. The playful tassels and pom-poms on these bags make them the perfect companions on a summer outing to the beach.
Every purchase of these handcrafted products empowers artisans working with Mar y Sol in Madagascar, 80% of whom are women. At The Little Market, we create a platform for these unique products to celebrate the rich traditions and techniques of artisan communities around the world. Most importantly, every purchase empowers artisans and helps them build a sustainable livelihood to support themselves and their families.
