Mille Boutique, a provider of unique homewares, fashion and accessories from around the globe, is urging UK consumers to have a more socially conscious Christmas this year.
UK shoppers spent more than £77 billion on Christmas related purchases in 2016 according to a report carried out by realbusines.co.uk, with the numbers expected to hit record figures this year.
With large multi-national corporations really cashing in on the UK’s Christmas gifting each year, Mille Boutique is offering another option for friends and family members who want to give something with real meaning to their loved ones this festive season..
Champions of African craftsmanship with an ethical and environmental edge, the latest products to join the Mille Boutique collection ready for Christmas are handmade using traditional materials and processes and utilise recycled materials where possible to help preserve the natural environment.
Unlike many other gift offerings you’ll discover on the high street this year, Mille Boutique’s beautiful, handmade products help to create jobs for African craftspeople, helping them to support their families and keep traditional skills alive.
For socially conscious fashionistas, the exquisite midnight blue clutch bag embellished with gold thread stars and matching recycled gold zip detail is a must for the party season. Available in small, medium and large sizes, not only are these handcrafted bags on-trend for the festive season, but they also provide a much-needed income to African artisans and their communities.
For families and friends that love to lounge, Mille Boutique’s range of beautifully soft, hand embroidered dressing gowns are created using natural kente cotton with contemporary detailing for a touch of pure luxury.
This material is made using traditional methods that have been passed down through the generations; the result is a wonderful gift for men and women that gives something back to the talented people that created them and doesn’t line the pockets of fat cat companies.
