It's been more than a year since the world was this open. Many of us are coming out of our hibernation period with new perspectives, priorities, and passions that we want to share with the community around us.
In this blog, you'll find all of the ways that Lucia's is here to help you show off your love for fair trade and the ethical goods that you are curating for your home and closet. We've got best-selling items, artisan stories, and quotes from our team about exciting products for this summer.
The weather is warming up and we are finally beginning to gather again. These best-selling items for the year will be a big hit with your circle.
Add a little pop of color and fun to your summer outfit with our string charm bracelets. New accessories are a must to refresh post-pandemic. Our fair trade Salsa Bowl is perfect for serving your favorite chips and salsa at your first post-pandemic party! Pair it with our tapas dishes for a fair trade feast.
The beautiful and diverse products we offer here at Lucia's would not be possible without the artisans we partner with. These artisans, some even in the face of oppression, are dedicated to preserving their heritage in their handicrafts. Take for example, many of the woven products we carry from Guatemala. These items are woven using a backstrap loom, said to be given to women at creation in Mayan tradition. Read more about weaving and textiles in this artisan story, and share it with your family and friends when you use a fair trade product.
