Holiday Gift Guide – Sustainable and Ethically Made Gifts

by Sanne
French barrettes, ethically made holiday gifts

The holidays are just around the corner, so I thought I would share this holiday gift guide from Mitzie Mee Shop where I am selling products from Fair Fashionista. The products from Fair Fashionista are made in collaboration with social businesses in Cambodia and Thailand, committed to providing good conditions for their employees, a fair salary and reducing waste of resources. Your gift purchase have a positive impact that goes far beyond the holidays, which makes gifting an even more joyful experience.

French Barrettes Hair Bows

The women from CWSG (Cambodia Women’s Support Group) make the beautiful hair bows from leftover fabric from the garment industry in Cambodia. CWSG was founded by Ky Kanary with the purpose of providing a source of income as well as social support to the women in the group. The small logo plate has a butterfly stamp and is made by Angkor Bullet Jewellery from old bullet casings.

The metal French hair barrettes are from the French company Delsol. You probably have not heard about them, but they were actually the ones that invented the French barrette back in 1920. They are the only company that produces this kind of hair slides in Europe, and their French barrettes are of a very good quality.

The hair bows come with a small drawstring pouch made from upcycled fabric.

Handwoven Tea Towels

The beautiful tea Towels in handwoven cotton come in many different colors and patterns. Some of the designs are made in Thailand, where Sylvia and Nor-Nor from Chimmuwa source the handwoven fabric from artisans in the small villages along the border to Myanmar. Other designs have been developed in collaboration with Weavers, which is a social business in Cambodia, empowering women in the villages to take charge of their own life and gain independence and pride that comes with earning an income. This year we also have a selection of tea towels with block print from the fair fashion brand Domlei based in Phnom Penh.

Contoured sleep mask, Peace Silk

Contoured Peace Silk Sleep Masks

The cute contoured sleep mask ticks all the boxes. The mask is made from soft Peace Silk (silk made without killing the silk worms) with a core of patented Metric 66, developed especially with comfort in mind. The 20mm deep eye cups means no pressure on your eyes and plenty of rooms for your lashes. Perfect for those short naps on board a train, bus or a plane, but also great for a good night’s sleep during daytime.

The women from CWSG (Cambodia Women’s Support Group) in Phnom Penh make the sleep masks and the embroidery details are hand-stitched. CWSG was founded by Ky Kanary with the purpose of providing a source of income as well as social support to the women in the group.
