It would give me no greater pleasure than to visit Morocco. The light of North Africa, the colours of spice, the intersections of costume and traditions of Berber, Jewish and Muslim communities. I don’t have immediate plans to go, but I have found a way to enjoy a bit of Morocco [and Peru] from Canada and that is through Jessica Torres of Welland, Ontario.
Like me Jessica fell in love with One Earth and decided to become a sales consultant with them. One Earth products meet my own criteria for company ethics and fair trade, sustainable income for locals, emphasis on local and hand made products, and well, the products are seriously cool.
From Jessica, I’ve already bought the small tea pot and a hand-tooled leather bag pack made in Morocco, but I’ve got my eye on the Lala Satchel Purse for me and the Peruvian Bliss stacking bracelets which would make exquisite stocking stuffers for my sisters and nieces.
If you are an Anthropologie junkie like me, you are going to loVe Jessica Torres and One Earth. Shopping local in an entire new way.
