One of the co-founders of MULXIPLY told their company's story the best:
"My friend and I started a business about a year ago in partnership with a women's cooperative in Nepal. We wanted to make beautiful products as a job-creation project for women in the developing world, but we wanted them to be modern and interesting. So off we went to Nepal to figure out how that could be done. Fast forward, MULXIPLY (pronounced multiply) was born!
Based in Somerville, Massachusetts, we design small-batch accessories that are then fabricated with hand-felted wool and leather by artisans in Nepal. We are inspired by minimal, modern design, and strive to ensure that our products -- from the raw materials, to the labor used, to the finished product -- are created ethically (and beautifully)!"
Lisa and I are ALWAYS looking out for anything new and fun, so off to their website we went. It was love at first sight with their clutch. It's casual, different, and fun. Total 'girls night out' bag. I see it with jeans, booties, a gray Vince sweater.

I want one. And at $72, you might want one too! Or, better yet, want to enter our giveaway and win one?! Yes?! What do you have to do, you ask? Two things: 1. Leave a comment below telling us how you would use the clutch and 2. "Like" MULXIPLY's GIVE GIVE Facebook page. Lisa and I will choose one name at random and BOOM, MULXIPLY will send that winner a clutch. Entries close on 8:00pm EST on Thursday, December 5th. Winner will be contacted and announced the week after.
In addition to the clutch, there are a bunch of great, unique holiday gifts on MULXIPLY's site. Thinking of the iPad sleeve for my husband (shhh…) - it's only $44.
Need a couple of 'Secret Santa' or 'Yankee Swap' gifts? How about a couple of these $34 pouches? They come in a couple of colors, but I love the peacock blue one.
Or how about these cute hand warmers for $15? Great stocking stuffers! (They come in heart shapes too!)
Lisa and I hope you enjoy their products as much as we have. Off to do some holiday shopping! Good luck! ~ JH
