HECHO EN MÉXICO | ARTISAN STORY
HANDMADE FROM RECYCLED PLASTIC
Our recycled plastic beach bags, totes and pouches have a unique story behind them that we are excited to share with you.
Our beach bags, totes and pouches (like many plastic baskets from this area) are handwoven by prisoners in the Oaxaca region. On joining the prison the inmates choose a job that enables them to make money to support their family. Many of the inmates choose to learn the traditional craft of plastic basket weaving . . .
A COMPLETE GUIDE BY SOI 55 TRAVELS
Welcome to the Algarvian city we choose to call our home - Lagos.
Although it is technically a city we think it is much better suited to town status.
Lagos may be framed by holiday apartment high rises but its charming town centre is a jumble of white houses with typical orange roofs, narrow streets, a 15th century church and a laid back vibe.
With an impressive number of golden beaches, stunning rock formations, a colourful historical centre and an excellent variety of restaurants + bars you can see why Lagos has a lot to shout about.
