In the spirit of giving thanks, why not give back to those who need the most help?
This holiday season, purchase gifts for your loved ones that help others as well.
We’ve selected five beautiful items for the home that also give back.
Nublado Throw | The Citizenry | $395
The Citizenry collaborates with artisans to produce one-of-a-kind, exclusive collections and donates 10 percent of its proceeds back into those artisan communities. Partnerships change from season to season to highlight different crafts and communities.
The Nublado Throw was made by one master weaver in San Pedro, Peru, home to alpaca wool. Each throw takes one full day to knit and is left in its pure state for a natural, soft touch and look.

Curated contemporary selections are of prime importance to Los Angeles-based Local + Lejos. Beautiful handwoven baskets and textiles from Rwanda, Cambodia, Guatemala and more feature bold graphics and simple, sophisticated design.
