The "tribal" trend is huge for the quickly approaching spring season. What better way to indulge in this trend than to buy handmade and support hardworking international artisans? Here are my top ten fair-trade accessories picks to add a little exotic color to your spring wardrobe, guilt-free.

What does it matter that this scarf is eco-friendly, fair-trade and 100% natural when it features such a fascinating combination of orange and turquoise checks? It definitely matters. This cotton scarf is also available in adorable purple and yellow checks.

2. Sterling Silver Red Sea Coral Earrings (Indonesia)

Here are a pair of outfit makers for you! The perfect embellishment for a little black dress, a turquiose cocktail ring, and a scarlet pout.

3. Bead and Bone 10 Round Bracelet (India)

The devil-may-care attitude of mismatched bone and glass beaded bangles combined into one vibrant cuff. This will instantly electrify a simple gauzy blouse, high waisted stovepipe jeans and strappy sandals.

4. Twenty Star Blue Coconut Horn Necklace (China)

Frida Kahlo would rock this necklace with red roses in her hair. Turquoise loves red, its color wheel complement, so try popping this on with red shoes or even a red dress for brilliant results.
