Find a Better Boyfriend
The trend in jeans is heading away from ultra skinny and super tight denim. Comfortably chic boyfriend jeans keep a small ankle but add a bit more fabric through the hips and thighs. KUT’s Catherine Boyfriend jeans give you the look you want without bagging.

The distressed look works well to show off your new Short Boots when you roll up the cuffs.

Fabulous Faux
Real or faux, fur is back. Detachable collars, toasty fur lined hats and gloves or vests give you Boho Chic with the price.

The classy Elsie Faux Fur Vest keeps bulk to a minimum so you don’t look chubby in your vest by replacing the back with fabric. Tie the attached belt loosely at your hips, and you’ve got the look for Fall.

How Angels & Hummingbirds Saved 21 Communities

snow geese

Have you noticed the flock of hummingbirds and angels that have flown into Terra Verde? They are made of Ef*ivory (elephant friendly ivory) also known as sustainably grown tagua nuts in Ecuador.

Fair Trade Tagua Nut Angel

Developed by Pro Pueblo, the foundation  creates work opportunities, and encourages growth and independent livelihoods for local artisans in their home villages. One of their primary efforts is to help the women produce handicrafts that allow them to work out of their home and care for their family.

Tagua Nut Hummingbird

Rather than hire the artists, Pro Pueblo helps the groups by offering support in logistics and finances by absorbing the artists’ credit risk.  The foundation offers artisan financing for the purchase of small equipment and tools which is deducted in small amounts from the work purchased.

Packaged in charming hexagonal handmade boxes, Terra Verde’s Tagua Nut Angels, Owls and Hummingbirds are unusual and unique presents that make a significant difference in the lives of the artists who create them.
