Hello

It takes practice, gut wrenching practice, to break open the eyes and really see. But the secret to joy is to keep seeking beautiful where we doubt beauty exists. Love really sees. Love always does. Maybe if we all practiced seeing together...maybe we could start with a, "Hello."

Strength for Today and New Hope for Tomorrow

Sustainably sourced and ethically made, our New Hope Tanks are "soft as bunnies" and dish up the inspiration you need to see beautiful, while also serving a greater purpose than simply clothing. A true "purchase with purpose," your purchase sends a child living in Eastern Congo to school for one month. Perhaps that means you need one in every color? We think that's a good choice.

Snag your very own New Hope Tank - they're flying off the shelves (which means kiddos are lining up for school!).

The True Cost Movie

"Who pays the price for our clothing?" ~ The True Cost Movie

I have thought a lot about this lately. Since connecting with the amazing four women at SHONA who make our New Hope Collection Bags its been in the forefront of my mind. I can't ignore it and I don't want to. I know the faces of Solange, Riziki, Mapendo and Argentine. I know their stories. I know that Solange just had a baby and had complications leaving her still sitting in the hospital - because in Congo you can't leave the hospital until you've paid your bill. I know their faces. I am so proud to carry their work - their art.

I know our t-shirts are made in the USA and I know the faces of those who print on them using eco-friendly practices. I know that our mailers are printed on 100% recycled materials in the states using soy-based inks and I love that a tree is planted for every order I place. I know the man who cuts our 100% recycled aluminum for our See Beautiful cuffs in Michigan. I know the stories of our products. I care.

After preparing our TedX talk with my friend, Steen, who founded Colors: Freedom in Fashion, she asked me (and all those who will soon hear her talk) to dig a little deeper to think about the clothing choices we make. What am I wearing - right this second? And, who paid the real price for my clothing? It's had me digging through my closet, asking questions about the faces and stories and families behind the t-shirts and bargain deals I've "scored" over the years. I didn't pay much at the outlets for those trendy tees years ago, but someone did.

Enter: The True Cost Movie


This. Film. Is. Beautiful. ...and I haven't even seen it yet. But I know it is. Because it begs a question that is seminal to our existence as human beings. It's a story about clothing, but when you peel back the layers, it's a story about love.

The movie is about the clothes we wear, the people who make them and the impact the industry has on our world - dare I write, our impact on each other.

"Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with the world’s leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva, The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes" (The True Cost Movie, 2015). Once invited into the lives of the people who's hands make your clothing everything changes. That's what love does. Love  helps us see clothing differently because it's really not clothing at all. It's people. It's faces. It's other families living and breathing in this world, who feel, just like you.
