WHEN IN NEW YORK PART 2: BROOKLYN

Last week we shared a few of our favourite spots in New York. But this city has so much to offer we can’t resist sharing a bit more of it’s goodness. When in New York make sure to reserve enough time to discover and enjoy Brooklyn!

Our good friends from bureau YOI sure did and listed some of Brooklyn’s awesome places to spot organic design products and enjoy organic drinks and bites.

True fashion in Brooklyn

To color you closet ethical and ethnic Bhoomki is the place to be! This shop stocks unique sustainable design pieces with lots of interesting prints and handcrafted details. In the same street you’ll find ‘Bhoomki home’ for a nice selection of pretty soaps, candles, home wear and special gifts.

Gotta love these gorgeous bangles spotted at Bhoomki!

Kaight provides their customers with fashion-forward clothing and accessories that are locally produced and Fair Trade and made of organic textiles and/ or reclaimed materials. Since the opening, Kaight has been recognized as a leader in the slow fashion movement in New York City.

Close to Kaight, in the same street you will find this very well curated store The Primary Essentials. This shop is just stunning and stocks special objects that put an emphasis on how we live our daily lives.

This pretty bag is designed by Los Angeles-based stylist Agnes Baddo, handcrafted and made locally with canvas and veggie tanned leather.

Coffee time

For a peaceful lunch with a French taste and the cutest café in town you need to stop by The Little Sweet Café. Make sure to try their gluten free and vegan cookies!

Drink your take away latte or cold pressed organic juice in this green oasis.  Perfect hangout during a hot summer day. You can definitely feel that people from this community project put some mindful love in this garden. (at the corner of President Street and Fifth Avenue)

Brooklyn, see you soon!
