Target continues to wow us when it comes to teaming up with our favorite brands and designers for winning collections at (much-appreciated) approachable price points. And just when we were finally getting over the excitement surrounding the debut of the retailer's new spring 2017 line, Target announced its latest collaboration with the globally curated, ethically sourced online marketplace Accompany, which may be the best yet—at least in the décor department.
Dubbed Accompany Us to Target, the limited-edition line includes impeccably designed goods sourced from six different countries. Some highlights from the colorful collection include wooden Kuni bowls from Kenya, woodgrain printed journals made by local women from the Himalayan foothills of India, a cozy herringbone throw woven in Bhagalpur, India, and one-of-a-kind splatter paint enamel mugs made by locals in Amatitlán, Guatemala.
“Accompany’s mission is to build income-generating opportunities for local people across the developing world,” said founder Jason Keehn. “Traditional crafts and indigenous methods for creating products are being lost every day, and we aim to support the livelihood and communities of these craftspeople by connecting their goods with a wide consumer base. Through our partnership with Target, we’re able to shine a spotlight on the communities creating these goods and help them continue their traditions, now and in the future.”
In other words, you can feel good about stocking your home with these goods. We'll take one of everything.
