Store Review: Global Girlfriend

Fair trade boutique Global Girlfriend lets you put a little love in your purchase power by selling goods handcrafted by women in conjunction with non-profit organizations and women’s cooperatives around the world. From “anti-sweatshops” to programs that promote esteem-boosting job skills, Global Girlfriend provides detailed info on how your specific purchase is used to help the disadvantaged women who created it. Sure beats a tag that simply reads “made in Indonesia.” And the goods are gorgeous too! Ranging in price from around $4.00 (Lavender Glycerin Heart Soaps) to $80 (a steal for a hand-crocheted poncho), you’re sure to find something here that would catch your eye. Shop Global Girlfriend online or request a catalog for future reference. Because if giving is better than receiving, doing both at once is best.

Bold Silk Cosmetic Bag – $12

Made from 100% silk, these bold tropical print cosmetic bags are handmade by a fair trade group in the Tamil Nadu region of Southern India. The organization not only provides sustainable employment and good pay, but also free meals, health care and education for employees and their children.


Global Girlfriend is a no-brainer for gift giving, so be sure to keep them bookmarked for upcoming special occassions.

Citrus Vanilla Gift Bag from Thistle Farms, a non-profit in Nashville dedicated to helping keep women off the streets – $18.50

Beaded Mirror in Organza Pouch, available through a women’s fair trade project that helps combat poverty in India – $10.00
