Feel Good Accessories!

Buyer’s remorse, yuck. It seems to be all too common considering the economic state we are in. This time, imagine buying an amazing piece for your home while changing lives in an impoverished country! You cannot possibly feel bad about that – therefore we recommend Ekobo. Although located and retailing in France, these accessories are made by local workers in Vietnam.

Ekobo’s mission is to keep these artisans in their local villages rather then having them rush to the large cities where their quality of life lessens dramatically. Creating healthy work environments for the Vietnamese and using locally grown bamboo as their main material, these pieces are a beautiful creation in so many ways. If a trip to their retail shop in Paris is out of the way, shop at Terence Conran in the US.
