Cordula Kehrer Bins
Cordula Kehrer, these bow bins are quite unique. Produced by the Aeta people of the Philippines using traditional basket weaving techniques, they’re made from recycled plastic and rattan. Not only are these baskets beautiful, but the fair-trade practice enables these people to make a living and to have a better life. Use the blue, aqua or red bin as a trash basket, for storage or even to hold toys. Can be found at a threetwewntyeight favorite, Beklina.

Julie Park Drop Crotch Pants, $180
sweats have been around for years. These days, they aren’t just about lounging though – they’re kind of fashionable if done right. Appropriate for a picnic in the park, trip to the store or wandering around downtown. Good with heels, espadrilles, sweaters, tees – these pants are surprisingly versatile. I actually have a pair of old-school sweatpants that I wear a ton, but since these are cropped, they are a great alternative for the warmer months. I found these harem pants at Northern California’s “first, and original eco-boutique”, Beklina, and are made by Julie Park, an off-shoot to Australian company, ParkVogel – all about creating luxury, eco-friendly items. Did I mention they have pockets and an elastic drawstring waist? Pretty much, the perfect addition to my weekend wardrobe.
African Print Bag
African print bags over at the eco-boutique Beklina. They are made from sustainable materials and are hand printed and sewn in Ghana. The best part about these bags is that they are empowering the women of Ghana to practice their trade and giving them financial independence. In addition to these beautiful printed purses, the Beklina shop has a great assortment of organic/green clothing and accessories.
