In addition to running a thriving fashion label, Lauren Conrad is the co-founder of a growing global shop, The Little Market, which sells beautiful lifestyle accents, home décor, and fashion accessories made by artisans in developing nations. Today, Conrad and her partner and friend Hannah Skvarla share their favorite packing hack.
This beautiful hand-embroidered bag was repurposed from a Mayan woman’s traditional blouse, known as a huipil. Each huipil is a work of art and can take months to complete. The bag has a hot pink lining and an interior pocket. No two bags are alike!
Similar to the cosmetic bag, our bikini bags are made from repurposed huipil. The clear plastic lining makes it especially durable for cosmetics and toiletries.
Available in two sizes, the playful striped cloth in this bag is made by women artisans in Guatemala on a backstrap loom. The bag is lined with recycled denim made using a process that saves thousands of gallons of water.
This adorable bag, made from huipil in Guatemala, is cute and compact. The colors, weaves, and designs have important meaning; they can symbolize the weaver’s personality and the village where she is from.
In addition to their functionality, what each of these bags has in common is that they create opportunity for the women artisans who make them. See our complete collection at The Little Market.
