Web Site Review: GlobalSistergoods.com
April 9, 2007
What: Girly goods for a global cause from Global Sister Goods.
Why: Searching for that perfect gift for your globe-trotting friend? Check out the global gifts at Global Sistergoods. This Web site specializes in products produced by women, for women, around the globe. There are a variety of items that are great for everyday use, such as this Naturally Dyed Shoulder Bag with a trendy long strap, produced by the persecuted Burmese Karen people who live in refugee camps near the border of Thailand. You can also pick up ostrich shell earrings from Africa, beaded pillows from Pakistan or hand-embroidered handbags from Cambodia. Searching for an item from a particular destination? Check out the listings by country.
Why Not?: The country-by-country listing of items is currently limited to seven, with a majority being from Africa or Asia. Although Global Sistergoods claims to partner with NGOs and other trade associations, the Web site should not be confused with a non-profit 501Â©3.
Keep it or Return it? Keep it! Global items always make for great, authentic, unique gifts for that hard-to-shop for friend. Plus, youâ€™ll feel so good about helping women around the world that you might even pick up something pretty for yourself!
