The main reason was to let my daughter experience other cultures, languages, foods, and all of the life lessons that come from travel in foreign lands. Crazy, you may say - probably!

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.
