Which of you, my Glamorous Moms, are on the hunt for handmade designer purses and handbags for Spring 2017? Who’s looking for a splash of hot color and a way to give back? Designer Jennifer Olson has my attention, with her brand, products and vision for lifting her communities. Take a peek at Boutique Mexico and you’ll see exactly what I mean.
Ancient Craft + Modern Design = Artisan Empowerment
My research on handmade designer purses and handbags for spring 2017 took a sizzle as I ventured online to Boutique Mexico. I was greeted with fresh, clean pops of color and patterns, and a deep desire to book a flight STAT. Not only was I craving the product, I fell in love with eco-friendly Boutique Mexico founder and designer Jennifer Olson’s vision for fighting poverty. Boutique Mexico celebrates community with partnerships in Guerrero, Hidalgo, Puebla, Chiapas, and Oaxaca. Jennifer’s brand donates to La Escuelita de Sonia School for needy children and Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve.
Here’s the scoop on my two Boutique Mexico product faves:
STELLA MEDIUM SHORT HANDLE TOTE
The Stella Medium Short Handle Tote, that Mexican classic and perennial favorite is now a chic, stylish carry-all in hot colors that moves from daytime to after dark and never looks back. Carried by fashion adepts from New York to Cabo, it looks great anytime, any place. Handwoven by artisans in Oaxaca, Mexico.
