EmiLime’s beautiful products are hand-knit by women in Peru, allowing the artisans to support themselves and send their children to school.

Showcasing a different knitting technique from one of Peru’s many cultural regions, this scarf from emiLime is chunky, yet delicate and feminine. We’re envisioning it paired with jeans and boots…or maybe dressed up with a tulle skirt and flats… however your gal wears it, it’s sure to become a winter staple in her wardrobe! $58.

This is Maruca’s Johnny Bag ($86)—their “half-sized messenger” as they call it. It fits her dog-eared favorite novel, ipad, or hiking trail maps…without the bulk of a messenger bag. She can keep all her jewelry, cosmetics, odds, and ends organized with the help of Maruca’s cosmetic bag ($21) tucked inside.
