Smart, Sustainable, and Chic

Smart, sustainable, and chic are the three core passions that inspired Shana Yansen to start Jute and Jackfruit.  And last month I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Shana and learn more about her company and the Jute and Jackfruit blog.

Jute and Jackfruit is an environmentally and socially conscious clothing online boutique selling limited handmade clothing, jewelry, and handbags.  Here are some of my favorite items from the online boutique.  This is the perfect time to start thinking about holiday gifts right?



I ended up buying the silver and black Masha Messenger Bag.  Here are a few features of this "smart design" bag.
1. It was made from over 1600 recycled aluminum soda pull-tabs, hand crocheted together.
2. Socially-conscious program empowering Brazilian women to gain crochet skills and obtain a source of employment. A portion of sales is donated to community building programs.
3. Made by artisan women in Brazil, fair trade.


Also, from now until November 30th, 2010 you can use the code Naina15 at Jute and Jackfruit to receive 15% off your first order. (clearance items not included)

That's a brilliant line N! First of all, I love jackfruit though I always have a hard time explaining it to friends here. Socially responsible companies like these need our support and purchases! =)

I'll look into it!

Hi N!

Me again.. Wanna drop you a line on a few things! That necklace is surprisingly from the store we both frequent and I suppose love - BR!

So, I decided yo gey that same scarf you javr. Did you notive that though its the same pattern as the ruffled blouse, its actually not made of the same material? Scarf is more like satin silk while the top is made of crepe silk.

And.,, bought the sequin dkirt yoday! I'm back in Montreal - boy the holiday dresses are gorgeous!

Miss ya!
