I love new designers. I love eco friendly designs. I love people that are about helping other people express their talents and share with others across the world. Thus, I am excited to share with you The IOU Project. They are officially up and running on line and it is so exciting. When asked what makes IOU different, they answered, “The IOU Project makes unique, handmade, traceable apparel. That alone is exciting. But the real difference lies deeper. Because each fabric is unique, we provide end buyers with the ability to trace the process from finished item right down to the weaver that hand-wove the fabric. The stories of how that item was created, of the people involved, of the customers who purchased them, are the essence of the e-commerce social network which The IOU Project has built as a meeting place for a community that shares our brand values of authenticity, transparency, uniqueness and both social and environmental responsibility.” There are some great finds – and I love that each is unique. Plus, I love spending my money towards a good cause – and this is a great movement in the fashion world, so I am all about it.
Are you willing to spend more on something that is more eco friendly and unique for the support of the artist? Is there one item you are willing to splurge a little more on? Go check out The IOU Project and share the love!
