Our Shupaca throws woven with all natural alpaca products are 100% hypo-allergenic and eco-friendly. Warmer, stronger and lighter, these incredibly soft blankets are perfect for cozying up by a fire.

Specializing in accessories handmade with alpaca and Andean sheep wool, Emilime collaborates with an expanding network of Peruvian craftsman and celebrates the creativity of each knitter. Their on-trend fingerless gloves, ponchos, neck warmers and scarves are not only plush, but practical.

Our monogram jewelry is perennially popular. The recycled gold discs in multiple sizes are the perfect elements to design your own necklace. Whether a single initial or a group signifying children or other loved ones each necklace is very personal. The manufacturer donates a plate of food for each piece sold. We love when looking good always means doing good.

The rattles and small stuffed-animals and sea creatures in the shop are fair-trade project from Bangladesh. Each of the crocheted pieces are magical and ever more so when knowing they are benefiting a work group supporting women. The penguin is our signature piece for holiday but the octopus, owl and rainbow bunny are favorites year-round.

We are always on the search for fairly-traded product. Ask us when you’re in the shop and we’ll give you a tour of newest additions to our collection of fair-trade or locally made products with purpose.
