The holidays are right around the corner, and here at BELatina, we have curated a series of gift guides with ideas for your tías, primas, and basically any Latine in your life.
However, we know you want to get the perfect, most unique gifts for your entire familia and friends, and if they come from Latine-owned small businesses, then that’s even better. So, if you have a friend or family member who’s a nature lover and enjoys anything that’s planet-friendly, this list is perfect for you.
Here are some Latine brands that will get you the best present to celebrate an eco-friendly holiday.
This Latina-owned business offers curated vintage and secondhand clothing items and accessories. What’s more to like than sustainable fashion?
