Mar Y Sol Has Soul
Mar Y Sol translates to "the sea and the sun" – but more than just a beautiful name, Mar Y Sol is a socially-responsible brand that cultivates fair trade relationships to create an inspired collection of unique handcrafted totes, bags, clutches, hats, and throw pillows that will make you happy. Designed by collaboration with local artists in New York, owner Laurel Brandstetter has cultivated relationships with artisan women in Madagascar where these accessories are handmade using only natural materials that are sustainably sourced from their forests. When buying a Mar Y Sol product, you are supporting the economic independence of these women.
Mar Y Sol's unique accessories have been featured galore in practically every women's magazine in the aisle! Lucky, InStyle, Marie Claire, Glamour, O, Real Simple, and Brides – just to name a few. Check out their online shop and Facebook page for more of their wonderful collection.
And stop into EmBo. on Southport THIS WEEK to see what owner Heather George has available from the Mar Y Sol collection. You will receive 15% off just for mentioning Little Bits of Green! (Ends this Friday.)
