Still in the process of decorating our new apartment, the Reversible Fabric Bins have been such a sweet touch. Perfect for my plants and guest bathroom, the hand-stamped batik bins are easy organizers and a great alternative to simple bins. Reversible is an added bonus! Made by Kriya and Me Creative Studio, each bin is produced in Indonesia using ethnic fabrics, and are meant to enrich one's life story. The Beaded Wristlet reminds me of jewelry and is a lovely statement piece to dress up your outfit {almost too perfect with the wave pattern against a beach scene, right?!}. The wristlets are big enough to fit your cell phone, cards, lip gloss and a few other little purse necessities, and are handmade with love in Singaraja, the Northern part of Bali. 

Besides the lovely fabric bins and beaded wristlets, The Nomadic Trails offers a little bit of everything; pillow cases, jewelry, leather goods, handbags, servewear and clothing. Above, I have posted a few of my favorites. The Alana Pillow Cover is made in Indonesia by Krea Living, and the Barasata Dragonfly Necklace, made in Bali, is a reminder that "we are light and can reflect the light in powerful ways if we choose to do so". Have somewhere to go? The Leather Passport Holder has you covered! Safe travels :D
