Las Otras Hermanas Boutique Moving

Las Otras Hermanas Boutique is ditching its Civic Space Park digs for more DIY-urban territory: Beginning next month, the fair-trade, non-profit shop will sell its independently-made wares inside of Way Cool Hair Pollution, 1524 East McDowell Road.

In August 2009, Charis Elliott opened the volunteer-run shop next door to the new Fair Trade Café at 424 North Central Avenue. While there, she stocked and sold all sorts of fair-trade, handmade items, including clothing made by low-income woman workers in Juárez, Mexico. (The boutique is a spin-off from Las Otras Hermanas, a non-profit that provides entrepreneurial resources to those women.)

Charis' brother Joerael Elliott, who added his own touches to the old store, is expected to contribute additional designs to the new spot inside of Way Cool Hair Pollution. (His collaborative mural with Jesus Rodriguez already graces one of the building walls.)

LOH Boutique plans to have a grand-opening party on October 3. Check out www.lasotrashermanas.org for more information.
