When I look for products for your design, my goal is to find beautiful, authentic and unique items that are eco-friendly and tell the stories of the cultures that inspired them! I look for pieces that support local artisans and communities. Some of these are retail sources or affiliate partners where I have worked with the companies to get you a discount as noted. Others are trade sources where if we work together, I can get you a discount.
Before checking on any of these sources, sign up for Ebates, a great way to get cash back on any purchases where the merchant participates.
