Here's one way to really stretch your do-gooder dollars beyond the border without even leaving Los Angeles. Certified B corp brand Someone Somewhere is popping up for the first time in the U.S. on Abbot Kinney, where it's holding court through the end of October.
To help fulfill its mission to uplifting millions out of poverty in Mexico, the fair trade lifestyle label puts a modern spin on traditional embroidery and art in the form of print-happy clothing, bags, and accessories — and in the process employs 200 artisans (most of them women) in the country's poorest states. Its Venice pop-up shop (located in fine jeweler Sofia Kaman's former space) stocks women's and men's tees and sweaters, backpacks, hats, travel and tech cases, blankets, and other globetrotter-minded accessories ($29 to $149) featuring designs made from five different ages-old techniques.
Someone Somewhere is open from 11am to 7pm daily.
