Tribal Societe – Hot Spring Accessories, A Seasonless Cause
Written By Andrea Kiliany Thatcher, on March 23, 2010
Spring is in the air, and the urge to shop is blowing in on that lovely breeze! Give a quick jolt to your still transitioning wardrobe with many ladies’ favorite category – accessories. Tribal Societe just released their spring ’10 look book, and it’s full of fun, colorful pieces. We’ve selected some of our favorites – including a roundup of stunners in spring’s hottest hue – turquoise.
From the delicate and romantic, to the chunky and statement making, there’s a lot of variety to be had in the collection. And it’s not just jewelry, either. Unique and reasonably-priced footwear made by artisans of Thailand will keep you stylish by the pool or pounding the pavement.
But one of the biggest reasons you’ll want to shop Tribal Societe, either on their Web site or at boutiques across the country, is their commitment to selling quality items handcrafted by artisans of tribal villages around the world. No trust fund socialite strung these beads. A portion of all sales goes to the Global Fund for Women which grants money to women’s and humanitarian causes around the globe.
Each piece tells you where it was made, from Ecuador to Brazil to El Salvador. Given the distance many of the items have traveled, as well as the expense of charitable and fair trade initiatives, it’s remarkable the products remain so affordable, few items reach $100.
As the company likes to say, the items where made around the world, but where will you take them?
