It’s always such a joy for me to present my readers with companies that have a deeper purpose than simply offering their wares for sale. When a company strives to make the world a better place, I want to point you in their direction. When it’s their very reason for existence, I really want to wave flags of celebration. Build a Nest is just such a company. Their mission is to help women in poor countries to start their own businesses, thus allowing these women to provide for their families and to improve their communities.
How do they do that? By selling a wonderful line of products for the home. Profits help women in need to fund their own art-based businesses, giving them the opportunity to not only make a living, but express themselves artistically as well. One of the items you’ll find on Build a Nest is this wonderful sarong from India. Made of cotton voile fabric, the print comes in three colors. I have the natural with purple flowers (seen in the middle of the three pictured), and this is just one of those items that a photo can do no justice. The print is very detailed and the fabric feels wonderful. Tiny glass beads on the edges add a subtle embellishment. I’ll be using mine as a beach wrap this summer, perhaps a skirt depending on how the mood strikes me. But you could also use the sarong as a romantic tablecloth, a curtain, or whatever your imagination conjures.
Build a Nest is kindly offering one dkMommy Spot reader their own sarong, in choice of colors. ($73 retail) I’d highly recommend entering the giveaway; take a look around their site as well. You’ll certainly find something you can’t live without, and purchasing will make you feel good knowing you’re helping a woman somewhere in the world to support herself and her family.
