Coming out of Women’s History Month, we’ve been thinking a lot about the women in our lives. Whether shopping for Mother’s Day or sending a gift of appreciation, these gifts are truly unique for those that mean the most to you. All items are designed or made by female artisans and designers. And remember to include a gift note if shipping directly to the gift recipient.
- HABIBI T-SHIRT
All you need is love. Send Lyoum’s cotton t-shirt with the word Habibi, or ‘my love’ in Arabic, to your love. Wear with a pair of jeans (or Anissa Aida Culottes), tuck into a skirt, or sport it for summer with a pair of shorts.
- CUSTOM EMBROIDERY
Customization is a special way to show your love with a name, monogram or phrase. Oakland-based artist Sam Saavedra has perfected her elegant chainstitch script embroidery to make a truly unique gift for a friend, family member or yourself. Remember to add both the fouta and the embroidery to your shopping bag. What message will you write?
- TRIANGLE BASKET
Female artisans in Tunisia work in groups at home to weave local grass into elegant and practical shapes for the home. The triangle basket is perfect as a centerpiece filled with fruit, or fill it with a batch of homemade cookies when gifting for a personal touch.
- GOLD BABOUCHES SHOES
Gift these gold babouches slipper shoes for the one with a heart of gold. They can be worn all-year-round as a slip-on with the heal down or as a loafer with the heal up. Great for around the house, running errands in style and comfort, or a jaunt to the beach.
- MICRO SQUARE BAG IN BLACK
Worn all-year-round, this petite leather bag fits the essentials and adds a clean edge to any outfit. The removable shoulder strap lets you use it over the shoulder, across the body, or as a clutch.
- E-GIFT CARD
Don’t know the size? Can’t decide? Send an e-gift card and they’ll find exactly what they wants. Include a personalized message and the balance never expires. It’s a gift that’s always the right size.
- MONOCHROME CERAMICS
Serve a fresh green salad, summer pasta or fresh fruit in NOA Atelier’s stylish monochromatic serving bowl. Designer and architect Nesrine Ouertani preserves traditional methods and techniques, which are entirely done by hand, in creating elegant and contemporary pieces for the home.
- FISH PILLOW
Tilli Tanit’s head of the atelier, Rachida Sfaxi, leads a team of female embroiders in the coastal town of Mahdia. For this playful pillow, they drew inspiration from another Tunisian craft: the Sejnane region’s signature pottery, passed down through the generations from mother to daughter. Translated into linen and thread, the result is this whimsical pillow, hand embroidered in navy mohair by female embroiderers.
- NOURISHING BALM
Ditch the strong perfumes and colognes for L’Odaïtès’ Nourishing Balm, which will transport you to the gardens of Tunisia while nourishing your skin. This roll-on balm for the face, hands and body is made of 100% virgin oils, including antioxidant-rich date seed oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E.
Every day we celebrate talented female communities around the world. The individuals who fight, who fall, who are fearless, who endure, who break barriers, who are quietly moving mountains. The Tunisian designers, artisans and entrepreneurs we work with. The creatives and experts behind the design, content and development of our website. The community of peers, friends and small business owners we lean on. The customers and clients we work with. To our global community, THANK YOU.
