What are you Manifesting?

What are you Manifesting?

I recently read a quote and can’t seem to find it again but the general idea was this - when bad things happen, what will come out of you?  If you are filled with joy and optimism, even in the worst of situations, that is what you have inside to let out.  Wow, that stuck with me these last few days and I decided it is worth sharing. I hope that you will consider what you are filled with.  Is it happiness, love and joy?

5 U.S. Artisans that Create Jewelry by Recycling

A true artist can visualize something beautiful out of anything! We are in awe of the jewelry that can be made from recycling. You might be thinking we are crazy, but just wait until you see how these five U.S. artisans are turning waste into art you can wear! 1. Hathorway has been a top seller in our boutique from day one. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, every piece is designed by designer, Jessica Phan, who wanted to reconnect with her Vietnamese heritage by preserving a 400-year-old craftsmanship which uses ethically-sourced buffalo horns, a material—like leather—that has been...

Fast Fashion - A Parable

The other day, two ladies were browsing our sale rack just outside the store.  I was inside and heard them commenting on how cute the clothes were. When they got to the end of the rack, one of them said, “$99 are you F#@$’ing kidding me?”  They were looking at an ethically made dress from our partner in Portugal (BTW, it’s on sale at 40% off of $99 in the store).  I wanted to run outside and explain to her why our boutique may seem expensive compared to shopping at fast fashion retail stores.  They didn’t bother to come into the shop, and I was left realizing what a long way we have to go as a society in understanding and recognizing what fair labor practices are in the garment industry. Afterall, education is a key piece to our vision and trust me, we are still learning too!

What is Zero Waste Fashion?

When we envisioned what Ginger Threads Collections would be, we knew we had to focus on our values to be successful. We value people and we value the planet. When we started looking for designers to partner with, we had an idea of what we were looking for and what we weren’t. But, along the way, we have been so incredibly humbled by the people we meet and get to call our partners.

From the beginning we 1000% knew fast fashion didn’t align to our values. Sustainable fashion is where our heart is! But, wow there has been so much to learn about sustainable fashion along the way. One of those concepts is zero waste fashion - which is a way of thinking - forcing designers to challenge existing techniques. So, what is zero waste fashion? And why is it even a thing?
