Art meets fashion + environment: Artisan Life
This week The Upcoming discovered Artisan Life, an online eco-boutique that lets you indulge your fashionable and artistic side while doing your bit for the environment. This label was established in 2004 with the view of promoting, developing and supporting Colombian artisans and their craft. Artisan Life specialises in jewellery, accessories, furniture as well as decorative interior items for any home.
Right now, we are going gaga over their eye-catching jewellery line that can add oodles of pizzazz to any outfit. Take for instance, this Gallo pendant (£17.99) that might not have diamonds but comes with lot of personality. Inspired by pre-Colombian designs, the pendant has semi-precious stones such as garnet, quartz, jade, amethyst, malachite and pyrite and is combined with strings in silver and alpaca. Team it up with a flowing maxi dress and you are ready to take the sun-kissed city by storm.
Needing more colours in your life? This bright clutch bag (£59.99) is your answer. Handmade with durable cowhide leather, the vibrant colours are perfect for giving a pop to your monochromes. Looking to give your kitchen a makeover but don’t want to break the bank? Try this batea tray in wicker and quarry stone (£59.99). This lovely eye-catching item uses the finest natural willow wicker and quarry stone sure to uplift any corner of your kitchen in an instant. You can also add this Tai desk lamp in wicker and canvas (£119.99) that will bring sophistication and mystery to your living room.
