Hand Painted Crossbody by Rosa Mexicano

A couple of years ago, I was shopping in downtown Blowing Rock, NC and visiting my favorite gift shop. I left with one of my most favorite possessions. It was a hand painted clutch bag with a Maria design. When I started this online boutique, I contacted the designer of the bags in Mexico and she and her artists have painted many bags for us now! Last year we offered the oversized clutch bag (we still have a few left)  and this year we added a new style: the crossbody bag! It comes with an adjustable strap so you can wear it as a crossbody, a regular purse or lose the strap altogether and carry it as a clutch. These are incredibly unique and we are so excited to partner with such talented artists who are contributing to their communities through small business employment.

Why Engaging in Purposeful Shopping is More Pertinent Than Ever

If you ask any consumer about the origins of their clothing, you’ll likely hear them reference the brand or website from which the article was purchased. Unfortunately, our current digital landscape and its practices have put even more distance between consumer and source, leading many well-intentioned individuals to partake in less than ideal shopping practices. Furthermore, the digital age and fast fashion have only exacerbated the issue. While third-party suppliers often purchase clothing from a variety of different designers and brands with little to no research about how their policies and practices affect others.

Moreover, a lot of self-informed shoppers want to be better about their purchasing habits, but rely on fast fashion for affordability. As a result, it’s not always easy to find places to shop in Charlotte NC that promote an ethical experience while maintaining a realistic price point. Elizabeth Leigh aims to fill this gap by upholding a fair pay structure that ensures both designers are adequately compensated for their work and customers don’t have to pay exorbitant amounts of money to feel good about where their clothing comes from.

With that in mind, our goal at Elizabeth Leigh is to make the practice of purposeful shopping accessible to shoppers of all kinds. We’ve found that if there are too many hoops to jump through, it often has an adverse effect on getting people to engage. To counteract this issue, we exclusively oversee the curation of our clothing and home goods collections by partnering with people and companies we respect and trust. We’ve personally curated a vibrant world market Charlotte NC patrons can access with the utmost confidence. Our team of certified experts goes through all the necessary channels to ensure that every vendor we partner with is one that helps us achieve our goals.


How it Works – Getting Involved

While we are based in North Carolina, Elizabeth Leigh is proud to ship to customers all across the United States. In fact, we offer free domestic shipping on all orders over $50 to incentivize and reward those who choose to shop ethically.

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is, “How does Elizabeth Leigh choose its partners?” It begins by carefully vetting those we work with and verifying that their own practices and procedures align with ours. We choose to partner with like-minded organizations and artists that share our concerns for creating a positive world impact through fashion. Together, we’ve created an around the world market Charlotte NC locals and customers across the states can conveniently access. More than anything else, it’s pertinent that we choose to collaborate with likeminded artists and companies that share a similar desire to enact positive change.

Our team is always on the lookout to build new relationships and partnerships, which is why we encourage artists to seek out our services if they’re interested in a potential collaboration. However, in keeping with our reputation for quality control and assurance, we choose to only partner with artists who do not engage in mass production and operate using wholesale pricing. In short, we customize and personalize collections based on exclusivity and features. To keep with our promises of excellence, Elizabeth Leigh carefully vets the artists and companies that we partner with. We have strict parameters regarding our Charlotte NC gifts, clothing, and home goods inventory. With that said, if we believe a working relationship would be beneficial for both parties involved, we’re dedicated to maintaining and building strong reciprocal relationships.
