I am happy to share with you The Native Market, a company who works directly with artisans from Colombia and other South American countries, who create 100% handcrafted products.  They do fair trade and give back to these communities who are living in poor conditions.  They seek to empower the female artisans through their art by preserving their traditions and building a stable source of income for them to provide for their families. 

I am showcasing their Wayuu Tierra Bag.  Most of their Wayuu bags are full of color and life, featuring bold patterns and styles.  There are however a few simple ones like this.  I tend to have alot of patterned clothing in my wardrobe and love the way the simple, one color bag looks with a busier outfit.  But their colorful ones sure do make a statement!  These bucket style bags make great carryalls for everyday use, picnics, beach or river days...

I styled it here with my favorite little Novella Royale dress, an old favorite sweater and the yummiest boots from Manitoba.
