All of these cool, beautiful and one-of-a-kind goodies are from unique boutiques from a mix of different cultures. These handmade goodies are all ethically sourced and each item plays a part in helping to serve a larger purpose by helping to fund several humanitarian initiatves: provide women in Malawi, Africa and Guatemala with business opportunities and honorable incomes; help care for orphans in Makindu, Kenya; help feed malnourished children and provide literacy classes for women. Fashion with human impact is important in todays world of mass commercialism, and who doesn’t love goodies that are uniquely artisan made, respect fair trade and are globally philanthropic. Being able to make an impact and look cute as a result is pretty amazing and this round-up of goodies for your babiekins is just that!
About Debbie Jovel, Contributor
I am a mom who has spent the last 20+ years working in the fashion Industry; my passion for fashion truly is 24/7. I have directed and managed Creative Design teams for global brands designing and developing: children's wear; women's wear; hard goods; beauty products; accessories & footwear. I love writing for Babiekins as my outlet for all things petit because I get to share my favorite fashions, decor and playthings with my fellow moms -- a result of my constant obsession with pinning and trend research which really never shuts off! I consider myself very "pinteresting" because I am always on the search everywhere for inspiration. Together, my family and I (my husband, son, dog and cats) love to explore and travel to experience and discover everything and anything new. I am a Minnesota girl who moved to New York City, then San Francisco, then Germany and can't wait to see where in the world our next adventure will be. Yes, I am busy; but I enjoy every second of motherhood, designing, traveling, exploring, writing, living, loving and laughing. You can find me on Instagram @petit_swag.
