Embrace a boho chic style that expresses your unique tastes and inspirations. You can live the life you love while you’re globe-trotting and when you’re enjoying the comforts of home by incorporating vibrant decor into your space!
La Vie Boheme
Stereotypes about the bohemian lifestyle abound. Writer Sarah Thornton reminds us that “Parisians originally adopted the term, associated with nomadic Gypsies, to describe artists and writers who stayed up all night and ignored the pressures of the industrial world.”
The best thing about this style? There is no “box” to stay inside of! Each bohemian space is an individual expression - as unique as the free spirits who are drawn to this type of aesthetic. You can choose to dabble with a pop of bright color or jump in fully, filling every nook and cranny with eclectic treasures.
Whether you’re redesigning your whole house or are searching for a few of the perfect accent pieces, Global Groove Life has you covered with an abundance of fair trade goods in the Home Style section of our website.
More Is More
When it comes to boho decor more is more! That means more rich textiles, more tribal accents, and more patterns can weave together to create a cozy vibe in your nest. So have fun and let your imagination soar! Experiment with introducing different combinations of hues and prints into your living space.
Adorning your space with bright colors and rounded shapes can create a haven of comfort and style. Strands of bright pompoms bring a curtain of juicy color and delightful texture to any room. Bohemian living entices us to expect the unexpected and expand our style horizons.
Mix & Match
Do you love the rich color palettes of indigenous embroidery from one part of the world and the standout patterns that create an entirely different look and feel? Great! Mixing and matching - or even clashing - are all celebrated when you choose to go with a boho decor. So go ahead, expand your sense of style.
Add one of our patterned yoga ball covers to any room and invite friends and family to find comfort in new ways when they come over for a visit. GGL has plenty of multi-tonal yoga ball cover choices that will keep you feelin groovy in your home. Your living room can be a happily full reflection of your internal joy and excitement.
Feeling inspired to recreate your living space as a plush boho wonderland? Check out these bold patterned cushion covers. There are so many ways to display your well-traveled, interesting, and ethically sound aesthetics with your home style choices!
“‘Style’ is an expression of individualism mixed with charisma,” John Fairchild. GGL encourages you to be bold, be expressive, be you!

Yoga Mat Bag – Which way do you roll?
I’m no yogi. In fact I don’t necessarily even practice yoga or even know much about it. However, when it comes to groovy accessories, especially bags – I’m pretty hot on the fashion scene!
While adventuring in Bali, I was scoping out the local market when a distinctly unique pattern caught my eye. Though it was a super-cute bag, it was super-oddly shaped.
I had no idea what it was for, so feeling slightly on the stupid side, I inquired within. I felt even more stupid when the reply I received was simply:
“Yoga mat bag, want to buy?”
Rather than hanging my head down and sulking away in embarrassment, I simply stood there, trying to figure out what in the world I could use a yoga mat bag for. Because I certainly don’t own a mat to put inside of it.
I was seriously determined to find an excuse to buy it.
I considered how it would make a great fashion piece, coming up with a number of better and worse ideas. A beach bag, a travel bag, a tent bag, a laundry bag….wouldn’t a case of beer fit perfectly? Honestly, the possibilities were endless. And then it hit me.
I want to buy a yoga mat bag even though I don’t practice yoga.
To be honest, I even considered giving yoga one more go, for the 100th time.
Fashion Forward Fair Trade Yoga--It’s the way we roll
Basically, what I am trying to demonstrate, is that while the bags are extremely useful for yoga.. or tents - some of the designs out there are absolutely incredibly unique. And here’s the way to get bonus points…..When you’re out & about searching for the perfect yoga mat bag to suit your unique personality, remember that you can vote with your dollars and make a difference. Yes, it’s true. Fair Trade yoga mat bags are plentiful. And I’ll be the first to admit that I got carried away on a google search for the hippest bag (just in case), so naturally, I’m now an expert in just how hot fair trade is in the yoga mat bag scene. It’s easy to do your part and take advantage of connecting these factors:
Fashion, Fair Trade & Yoga
You can be a cool cat with fashion
You can be a cool cat with yoga
AND you can be a cool cat with Fair Trade.
Did Some Cool Cat Say Accessorize?
I sure did. Okay, I didn’t but I was thinking it, quite naturally! Who wouldn’t want to accessorize their new yoga mat bag with a rainbow of pom poms and beads? Zipper pulls (& keychains) are just one more way to personalize your already truly groovy and unique yoga mat bag. So many colors and sizes to choose from here, and yes! they’re fair trade, too!
While I may never be a yogi, I’m fair-trade fit, and an all-star fashion guru! Shop cool and conscious, my friends!
