Buy native crafts that benefit the community

T+L contributing editor Shane Mitchell, an expert on artisan collectives, shares her recommendations: “I adore Tanda Zulu’s necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, made by artisans in South Africa, who are paid up to seven times the minimum wage. All profits go toward helping orphans in the region. India-based women’s collective Qilasaaz sells silk scarves embroidered in the centuries-old chikankari style, as well as handbags and kurtas. Or pick up beaded necklaces by designer Julio Pagliani (juliopagliani.com); they benefit Tarahumara Indians and mestizo families in Norogachi, Mexico.”
