Here at GAIA, we believe you vote with your dollars, that your purchases have power. When you choose ethical fashion vs fast fashion, you are voting for these types of goods to exist in the global marketplace, as opposed to the variety created in unacceptable conditions. Ethically produced goods are getting more and more votes these days, and we couldn't be happier about it.
*Steps off soapbox.*
If you're still reading, that means you dig this whole ethical fashion thing. Awesome! In that case, Elliefunday is a line you should definitely know – they dare to ask #WhoMadeMyClothes, and have created their own line of textile-based goodies that help support marginalized women in India. They also create super cool, always ethical gift guides. Our Dash Earrings made their Valentine's Day guide! Help us spread the love & give these goodies!Continue reading
Like we were saying... we love a good gift guide! This one is of the Canadian variety, which means it must be THE kindest of them all, because we all know Canadians are the nicest people on the planet... Eh?
We couldn't be more thrilled that we made Jillian Harris' "Nice List" this year! Check out the full guide for more goodness!
We love a good gift guide! Especially when it's a gift guide that features goodies for the greater good... (try saying that three times fast!)

Safe to say that never did we ever expect GAIA to land on Billboard's radar... and yet here we are in their Music Insiders' Holiday Wish List!
We have Erika Enders to thank for this unforeseen pleasure! Who is Erika Enders you say? Prolific Latin singer/songwriter/actress (aka she co-wrote Justin Bieber's song "Despacito" that you've sung a thousand times with your best Shakira moves even though you have no clue what they're saying). Enders included the custom African Mud Cloth pillow we created with Raven + Lily exclusively for their site. The pillow is now sold out, but we just had to document this because... remember that one time we were featured in Billboard?? LOLZ for life!Continue reading
Texas Monthly has cateorized their 2017 Holiday Gift Guide into 8 helpful archetypes, and GAIA goodies landed in 2 of them! Our Rizma Pillow is featured in their "Marfa Type" persona, and our Tibbs Mini Kitty Purse was featured in their "Kids & Pets" category (although mistakenly called "Chester" which also happens to be a very cute Mini Kitty!) Double whammy! Thanks for the shout out(s), Texas Monthly!

"Always be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn, then always be a unicorn."
