A little beachy, a little boho, Kimberly Hartman’s JADEtribe line of Asian-sourced, eco-friendly bags, jewelry and home accessories is the perfect antidote to a blah day. Hartman spent 16 years working at the top levels of various fashion houses before jetting off on a trip around the world to fulfill a childhood dream of hers. Traveling through India, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand, she realized that she could blend her love of fashion with her humanitarian values by buying or commissioning handmade fabrics from villagers in developing countries, and paying women fair prices to sew JADEtribe’s signature handbags, purses, totes and cushions. As an ethical partnership born of a spiritual journey, JADEtribe is a vital and vibrant brand – but it doesn’t hurt that the products of this partnership are also gorgeous, heirloom-quality (yet super-trendy) pieces. We’re major fans of the Nicole Messenger bag, the Elizabeth Bag and the Samui Stripe Throw Pillows here at Gilt HQ.
Signature embellishments make for everyday handbags that are never boring. These stylish finds from Isabella Fiore and JADEtribe are made to stand out, from laser-cut leather totes and intricately embroidered satchels to tassel-trimmed hobos and crossbodies stamped with vibrant tapestry prints.
