Yes, I know . . . it seems like every blogger has their own list of favorite sites, but I decided to do my own after a text conversation with a friend in the ethical fashion world who wasn’t aware of a few I’d mentioned. (In my own COVID-19 preparedness today I overbought from some of my favorites to make sure they were still having sales right now. #Oops #NotReally ). I figured . . . if there were groups she wasn’t aware of then there are ones that others aren’t aware of, either.
Except for those listed in the bottom section, these are all boutiques and shops I have personally shopped from.
These are in no particular order. In addition to the few links that are affiliate links (which I shop from regularly), I volunteer as a Mercy House Global Ambassador. Most of these on the list are just boutiques & brands I love and want to drive as much attention to as possible!
One way to get a taste of a variety of items from around the world is through a Fair Trade Friday subscription box. There are a variety of options starting at $12.99/mo including an Earring of the Month, Bracelet of the Month, and the Original Box (my personal favorite!) Many of the brands below are ones I first discovered through Fair Trade Friday.
Many of these groups have wholesale options and I would be happy to put you in touch with the correct person, if you are interested.
