We care so much about what we eat, where it comes from, the ingredients… But what about the other stuff. What about clothes? We kinda know what happens with clothes, we kinda know that most of the brands use people from developing countries who work endless hours under terrible conditions or even use kids to manufacture thir clothing. We also know that animals are killed in order to obtain leather and other fabrics. We know all these things deep inside our heads & hearts.
But, the world works like this – we like to say – I can’t change it.
Well, while it’s true that you, alone, can’t change it from day to night. It’s also true that giving money to all these brands is also doing nothing to improve the situation.
And I’m not saying don’t ever again buy clothes from big companies. I understand that some people, like me, don’t have the right amount of money to shop ethically, or, also like me, the right body shape to find clothes in a second hand market (I’m too petite and never find anything that fits well). I’m just saying, let’s all think about it for a while and maybe take some little actions that can help improve the situation.
This is why I want to start supporting – and sharing with you – little companies and enterprenours who take their job seriously and design and manufacture their clothing maximizing the benefits of people and minimizing the impact on the environment.
The design for this Minimalism tee was made by the lovely Amani Amber. I had the pleasure to talk to her – she is the most passionate and charming girl – and get to know the brand a little bit more.
Amani Amber was created to inspire people, to add some positivity to this world and help others realize how important is to dream big and to priorize health. She had to struggle a lot to get where she is now, and I’m proud to be helping her in spreading such a positive and powerful message.
All her tees are made in the US. Sweatshop free. Cruelty free. And made of 100% Organic Cotton.
Minimalism is sophistication – It’s clean, raw, and appreciates the inherent beauty in simplicity. – Amani Amber
P.S. I wasn’t paid to write this post, I just love to support passionate people who put all the effort to make their dreams come true.
