“Your heart will always lead you in the right direction.”
OMG. I love these yoga mat bags. If you aren’t familiar yet with Soulie (@thebeautyofhandmade on Instagram) and you like pretty things (who doesn’t), then you are missing out! Soulie offers artisan yoga accessories like mat bags, straps, and scarves. Their signature is vibrant, rich hues and jewel tones combined with just enough sparkle to make you smile. The best part, though? This do-good, feel-good company supports local artisans in developing countries, and uses a portion of their profits to benefit a scholarship fund so artists can hone their craft to create a livelihood.
Because I love you, and I love LOVE, I am so excited to give away one of these stunning “Unconditional Love” mat bags for Valentine’s Day. Just follow the link below to get hooked up with the entry.
When we caught up with Renee Lamb, founder of Soulie, this is what she had to say about the unique vision of her brand:We work at the intersection of art & design, economic development, and cultural preservation. We only work with artisans and non-profits committed to making the world a more ethical and beautiful place. We don’t mass produce anything – every piece we offer is handmade and incorporates traditional craft techniques so the more pieces we sell, the more jobs we create. We only create pieces that have a tangible beauty and unique story. Every yogini is unique, and we believe that the items she carries through life should represent that one-of-kind nature and beauty.
Personally, I am always super inspired by female entrepreneurs who are going full force for what they believe in! Renee is a woman after my own heart, with a love of green juice and chocolate croissants, a passion for fiery sunsets, and a soft spot for time with her family. Go give her a follow on Instagram or Pinterest to keep up with this design guru! And don’t forget to enter the giveaway to make one of these gorgeous mat bags your very own.
