Great Online Store: 7 Hopes United

7 Hopes United is a fun online store where you can pick up fair trade gifts and wearables that help communities develop.

I featured their versatile sandals here before, and I got to exploring and found a lot more fun stuff on the site.

Here are my picks:
$85 Vintage sari throw blanket
Cotton saris that are no longer worn and sewn together to be upcycled into this cute blanket.

$12.95 Bicycle printed coasters (set of 6)
These sustainable and recycled cork coasters are printed with old-timey bikes. Would be a great addition to a classy living room.

$17 Earring stand
A two-tiered wooden jewelry stand made by a developing community of artisans in India.

$34 Silk batik scarf
The batik designs on this scarf are so intricate and pretty. Can you imagine carving blocks with those little patterns to stamp and dye this?

$25 Leaf and twig bowl
This decorative bowl is made from recycled metal. I like how it doesn't seem to be connected in many places and the pattern is so open, but it is still a bowl that can hold things (fruit, etc)

$26 Weekender shoulder bag
Cloth bags that hold a ton and are made from local Ugandan fabrics
