You might remember when we shared an ethical shopping guide to Casa Verde, which is an online marketplace celebrating and selling curated handmade goods from in the US and worldwide. We’ve been able to list a few marketplaces in our directory so far, and it’s really exciting because each one brings conscious goods from different artists and vendors. Karli of Casa Verde, for example, works directly with Color Amor, Talent Store, an artisan boutique in Mérida, Yucatán.
If it weren’t for Karli’s work with Color Amor’s Cristina, those of us who aren’t local to Mérida might never know about the goods they sell. So we wanted to take a deeper dive into just one of the places Karli sources Casa Verde’s products, by connecting with Cristina and learning about her local shop.
