Dallas: CaritoCaro

CaritoCaro opens its doors the last week of July in the West Village. Next door to Paciugo, the boutique carries a slew of handbags, sandals, swim wear, and jewelry handmade in Latin America. Everything in store is made in super-small batches - of each design there will be only five - and 5% of the total profits will go back to programs that support those indigenous communities.
Can't wait to get one of these mochila handbags from Colombia. Vogue editor Lauren Santo Domingo collects this little gems, and last December everyone from Proenza Schouler, Missoni, and Phillip Lim create their own versions of mochila's for Miami's Mochila Project which benefitted the Wayuu tribeswomen who weave these bags.
