At A MONTRA / THE WINDOW we like to switch things every now and then. And although we’re all here for the new season buys, it’s still summertime after all. Forget September is just around the corner and enjoy your days at the beach in the most stylish and ethical way possible.

 

ONE

ONE / the TOTE

I recently spotted this tote during a shopping trip in London and immediately fell in love. Made from all natural materials by artisans in the Philippines, Indonesia and Malasya. KAYU gives back by providing these women with a living wage. ($125 KAYU)

 

TWO

TWO / the KAFTAN

Kaftans are officially a thing. This sleek, effortless style from New York-based brand Cienne is a summer must-have. The brand is engaged with sustainable and environmentally friendly practices and aim to create styles that you will wear for a lifetime. ($345 CIENNE)

 

THREE

THREE / the BRACELET

A statement piece of jewelry handcrafted in Kenya to complement your summer tan. Soko’s artisans quadruplicated their income within the two months of joining the project. ($85 SOKO)

 

FOUR

FOUR / the HAT

A summer essential with a twist from Indego Africa, a brand highly committed with creating a positive impact on the lives of the women who handcraft their products in Ghana and Rwanda. ($85 INDEGO AFRICA)

 

FIVE

FIVE / the AFTER SUN

Combining all natural ingredients – aloe vera, mint and lavender – Herbivore Botanicals’ after sun mist will help your skin regenerate from long exposition to sun. The brand does not test in animals. ($12 HERBIVORE BOTANICALS)

 

SIX

SIX / the POUCH

Ethics + aesthetics it’s the idea behind Australian brand Sunday Tracker. This pouch, made of palm leaf and wild grass in the Philippines, is the go-to accessory for those hot summer nights. ($65 SUNDAY TRACKER)

 

SEVEN

SEVEN / the BEACH TOWEL

A beach towel handmade by local artisans in the south-east of Turkey using GOTS-certified cotton. (€28 IN THE LOOP)

It takes up to 100 hours to make one of these. They’re 99% wood – and 99% biodegradable – and can be ordered at A Montra/The Window store. (€780 A MONTRA / THE WINDOW)
