Craft by World Market

Craft by World Market
Cost Plus World Market is one of my favorite stores for kitchen accessories, home goods, and unique foods from around the world. This year World Market introduced a new way to shop for unusual, authentic, hand crafted goods from around the world with CRAFT by World Market Collection. Each month a small collection of handcrafted goods are released by artisans, crafters and designers from around the world – they are available for pre-order for a short time period. If enough people pre-order an item, the product is brought to life. Kind of like mini-kickstarter, except every item is limited edition and one of a kind.

These are some of the pieces that are in the collection for June. I'm loving the Cotton Modol Scarf, it merges traditional design with vibrant colors and patterns. Check out this video below for more details.

I'm definitely excited to see what's to come with this new program. It's a new innovative way to approach the way we shop. What do you think? Check out the program here.



Monomatopee

November 07, 2012


i had such a great time traveling and can't wait to share some of the pictures from my trip. there were so many things i wanted to buy and bring home but resisted so i wanted to share some of the cool things i saw. these monomatopee bags are so neat, they looked hard but they were actually super soft and so modular. you can fold them every way and they become really compact. they even have a line of origami inspired inflatable scarfs too!

i haven't been able to find a us retailer for these but will update if i do.

Mochin + Baggu

August 11, 2011

Baggui love baggu's! especially their zip baggus [see how i used them on my asia trip here.] their zip baggus are great for traveling everything has a place. recently the city of long beach put a ban on plastic bags [YAY!] so people are encouraged even more to bring their own reusable bags. i try to keep a stash with me at all times but i think i am ready to add these to my collection. i love the new pattern designs by mochin.
