Looking for the perfect beach bag? Look no further than our Ghanaian woven shopping baskets! You can't open the pages of a fashion magazine without seeing a basket bag at the moment! Often a trending item that comes in and out of fashion; we think basket bags are here to stay. Timeless, classic and beautiful, basket bags are the perfect accessory for almost any occasion. Make a statement at the beach or local market with one of our hand-woven basket bags, handcrafted using 100% natural materials. Perfect for carrying all of your essentials.
Jewellery / Make-up Pouch
Everyone needs a make-up, jewellery or toiletries bag when travelling. Our Indian Block Printed Pouches are available in 2 sizes, so whether you travel lightly or pack for 'just incase', there's plenty of room for all of your essentials. The soft cotton and slight padding of these pouches makes them perfect for jewellery as it will be nicely protected. We particularly love the Garden Tiger Moth print when travelling as the darker colour means it won't be obvious if it gets a bit grubby in your suitcase.
Wherever you're travelling to, you are bound to find yourself in a hot and stuffy situation at some point. From airport queues to long bus journeys, sometimes you just need a bit of air. That's where a handheld fan comes in handy! Available in a range of bold and colourful designs, our Ghanaian Wax Cotton Fans will help to keep you cool. Taking a fan with you on your travels also reduces your need for air conditioning or electric fans, helping to reduce your energy consumption - perfect for the environmentally conscious traveller.
Gladiator Stud Hoop Earrings
For those that like to pack light, our classic Gladiator Hoops are a carry-on essential. A timeless and classic design, they will be your go-to piece of jewellery that will suit all occasions. Whether you're lounging on the beach, dining at a gourmet restaurant or dancing the night away. Made using 100% recycled brass by our artisans in Kenya.
We've all been there; enjoying a restful nights sleep when suddenly the early morning sun comes streaming in, disturbing your precious 40 winks. That's why we always travel with an eye mask! Never be caught out by thin hotel curtains again. Our 100% cotton eye masks are super soft against your skin and the beautiful prints are sure to give you sweet dreams.
Wherever you are travelling, we hope you have a lovely trip and travel safely! If you are looking for advice on how to travel more sustainably, have a look at our previous blog post here. Or explore our Ultimate Sustainable Travel Guide here.
