Buying a gift for someone’s home is especially meaningful to me, because I am very particular of the items I choose to display and use in my home. I live my life with the assumption that others are the same way. Some of these pieces are purely for aesthetics, others incredibly useful because we all use sheets & towels!
These brands are in no particular order, if you are looking for something not on the list be sure to comment below and I’ll do my best to send you an ethical option!
Gifts for Home
Balthazar & Rose
Foutas, Soap, & Hand Towels
Since the pandemic began we’ve all been washing our hands more often, or at least you should be! And these artisan-made soaps support local artisan communities and clean your hands. I find these soaps dry out my hands less. I particularly love Balthazar & Rose’s foutas, these 100% cotton hand woven foutas are incredibly soft and versatile. Use as a towel, pack as a lightweight blanket while traveling, or wear as an oversized scarf. It’s always in my suitcase for when I travel!

Zuahaza was founded by Tatiana Ordoñez in 2019 in Bogota, Colombia. In 2018, Tatiana made a trip to Charalá to learn about the rich history of cotton growing, spinning and weaving in this region. During her trip, she met with Corpolienzo, a cooperative of artisans. They decided to create a new line of textiles, born of the artisans’ extensive knowledge and of Tatiana’s desire to share creative, innovative textiles with the global market.
Zuahaza means “my sister” in the Muisca language of the people who lived in the Cundiboyacense mountain region of Colombia. As a social enterprise, Zuahaza strives to embody collective sisterhood between women in Colombia.
