Real Couple’s Favorite Fair Trade Products – Ashleigh & Collin

After featuring several other couples favorite fair trade products, I’ve had a few requests for my favorites! As some of you may know, Collin and I founded Seven Hopes United over 4 years ago after a trip to Costa Rica & Nicaragua. Our love of travel and heart to change the world not only helped us start this business journey together, it brought us closer together as a couple, and we were married on September 29th of last year.

As you’ll be able to tell in our favorite products collage, we LOVE anything to do with the beach. Although we both grew up in the midwest, a piece of our hearts have always lived at the beach. After living in California for 5 years, we celebrated our dream wedding on Coronado Beach with several of our closest friends and family members.

We live in a little (well, tiny) beach bungalow in Pacific Beach, San Diego. Our decorating style incorporates our love for the beach, with lots of aqua and sand tones, and artsy splashes of bright colors. We love bringing home small ethnic pieces from our travels around the world.

We, of course, love so many things we carry at Seven Hopes United, but here are a few favorites we received from family & friends for our wedding!
1. Large Capiz Bowl – Teal
This capiz bowl is one of my all time favorites…the colors are brilliant, and it’s the perfect accent piece for our beach bungalow. I primarily use it as a fruit bowl, but enjoy using it to serve salads when we have guests over for dinner.

2. Blue Diamond Vase
This piece has a special meaning to us as it was made in one of the villages we visited on our trip to Nicaragua. The people and the artisans there were part of what inspired us to start Seven Hopes United.

3. Graphic Lidded Hamper – Aqua Comb (Currently Unavailable)
We received this storage basket as a gift from my new sister-in-law and her family. It is so beautiful & the perfect color for our aqua/green bathroom. I use it for storing extra towels, beach blankets, etc.

4. Fig Stripe Vetiver Placemats
I love the natural smell of these placemats & the color works great with our cream and aqua dishes!
