Target is going all in on the global decor trend. In addition to the retailer’s spring and summer Threshold collections taking a worldly view, Target also partnered with online marketplace Accompany for a new collaboration that features home goods and accessories handcrafted by locals in six countries: India, Kenya, Guatemala, Ecuador, Turkey, and the United States.
This is a collection to feel good about shopping: Purchasing any of the items directly supports the communities where they were made, whether it’s Downtown Los Angeles or a village in the Himalayan foothills of India. See how some of the items were made with behind-the-scene videos and shop the whole collection now on Target’s website. The line also hit 12 U.S. stores yesterday.
