Store your daily essentials in one of these gorgeous, hand-loomed Workshop/CoOp bags (just featured in O Magazine); $45-$95 at theworkshopcoop.com. With every handbag sold, a 6- or 12-month supply of hygiene products will be given to a woman or girl who has been displaced from her home in Guatemala. Plus, the Chicago-based co-op — started by Pilsen mom Leslie Thomas — guarantees the women creating the bags earn a fair wage.
