There is a new online store on my radar at the moment. Barefoot Gypsy offers products that are eclectic, beautiful and unique, as well as being responsibly sourced from around the globe.
Founded by busy mum of 5 Maxine Smith who, as an insatiable traveller, decided to harness her love of people, travel and cultures to launch a business inspired by the pieces she kept collecting, initially for her own home.
Maxine is committed to supporting local crafts and artisans, and the store does not limit itself to any one locality. Instead it is a one stop shop for chic items from around the world. Barefoot Gypsy offers homewares and accessories from villages across Bolivia, Morocco, Uzbekistan, Africa and Asia, and they all have a unique story attached.
Whether you are searching for a stunning Bolivian rug, a Suzani Blanket from Uzbekistan, or a Juju Hat from Africa, this collection celebrates traditional craftsmanship and originality.
They do free shipping for Australia wide deliveries, and if you sign up to their newsletter you will receive 30% off your purchase. To see more visit the Barefoot Gypsy website here.
