QUITE A GIFT: Lord & Taylor is sporting a new accessory, tote bags made in Guatemala, and got a surprising run on them last week. “One woman came into our Scarsdale store and bought 125 to give out at a bar mitzvah,” said Brendan Hoffman, L&T’s president and chief executive officer, who greeted moms and their kids at L&T’s afternoon tea Friday celebrating Mother’s Day and supporting UNICEF’s efforts to provide nutrients for undernourished Guatemalan children through the sale of the totes as well as Guatemalan cosmetic pouches. L&T has partnered with Feed Projects, founded by Lauren Bush, to exclusively sell the products. The bags and pouches come in a variety of colors and woven patterns reflecting Guatemalan culture, and cost $39 and $19, respectively. Among the crowd supporting the cause and buying the bags was Dina Chartouni and her daughter Isabella, who said she created the Be-a-Part campaign to raise awareness about child marriages. Isabella said that with her friend Cami Winding, they’re launching a Web site, selling T-shirts and will do a documentary to fight the problem.
