Coleccion Luna

"artists"Katie RunnelsComment

Stephanie Jolluck, a native Atlantan, fell in love with the rich and colorful textiles of Guatemala during her time spent volunteering there at an Indian co-op. She formed her company, Coleccion Luna in which she works directly with Guatemalen artisans to create her line of gorgeous "Bohemian Chic" handbags, pillows, and other home goods. Not only does she employ many people there, she also shares a percentage of her yearly profits with various charities in Guatemala. You can see examples of her work and her collection on her website here. She has bags that look great for fall and most are under $60! I love the vintage look of her bags with the wooden and lucite handles. Buy one of these great bags and feel good about supporting a socially conscious young designer with a big heart!
