Shopper’s Diary: Artisanal Wares from Colombia at Someware Goods

August 31, 2016

On our radar: Someware Goods, the LA-based online shop that features housewares “handcrafted by artisans and designers from around the world,” is currently featuring a line of Colombian-made products. (It’s fitting, as the site’s founder, Giselle Hernandez, is Colombian-born.) We think the indoor/outdoor enamelware and woven totes (made of fique, a leafy plant native to the Andes) are perfect for the transition from summer to fall.
