Over the weekend we had the chance to take some photos for Conscious Shop Collective member Manos Zapotecas. If you’ve checked out their profile in our ethical shopping directory you already know how gorgeous their fair trade bags handwoven by artisans furthering the Zapotec traditions are. Globally inspired goods are huge right now and people are so drawn to designs and patterns that reflect cultures like Oaxaca, Mexico and their rich pasts. I believe that if more consumers knew they could reach and support makers directly by opting for an authentic piece rather than a trend-influenced, mass produced product inspired by certain traditions, they’d choose that instead!
We’ll be doing a more in depth feature on MZ this fall, but we wanted to share their stunning fall 2016 lookbook as shot by Mikola Accuardi with you in the meantime.
