The Little Market
The Little Market is a fair trade shop founded by Lauren Conrad and Hannah Skvarla where customers can purchase beautiful products handmade by artisans around the world. They provide design insights, helping our partners to showcase their traditional skills and cultural techniques to a broader audience. They also practice fair trade principles, and every purchase from The Little Market generates meaningful income for the artisans and their families.
Working through cooperatives and social enterprises, our artisan partners improve the quality of life in their communities in a number of ways, including literacy workshops, business training, and health programs. Women artisans are often able to work from home while caring for their families, and they can use the extra income to send their children to school. Oftentimes these children will be the first generation to graduate high school.
The Little Market is an independent nonprofit, charitable organization [501(c)3]. All sales revenue generated is retained within The Little Market, and any surpluses are used to purchase product and expand the number of artisans we work with around the world.
& Other Stories
This is a sister brand of H&M and COS. Founded in 2010 by a small group of creatives, & Other Stories grew from the wish to give women the freedom of expression through one brand. & Other Stories loves to share stories and invite you to discover our three design ateliers and collections. Their day-to-day world involves everything from the sketch of pair of shoes and the fitting of a new collection to a photo shoot in the studio and new beauty products and fragrances being tested.
UO sources textiles with sustainability top-of-mind, including their sustainably - sourced merino wool and recycled polyester made from water bottles. They take great care in the selection of their stateside and overseas factory partners, keeping working conditions and ethical practices a forefront priority. Since the company’s founding in 2013, its growth has accelerated with the lithe ferocity of a 100-meter sprinter: 800 percent in 2016. Outdoor Voices has eight retail stores in four states, with another five planned for the coming year, all of them aimed at people who are, sure, active, but who are not defined by it.
Based in London, UK, Thought uses “forces of nature” materials such as bamboo, cotton. wool and hemp. But for them, Creating Thoughtful Clothing alone isn’t enough. They value doing the right thing and want to feel good about everything we touch. That means they work ethically. From the fabrics used, to how the design is and make and deliver the garments. Thought thinks about every impact their business has. And it’s with the greater aim of minimising our environmental footprint. They are also proud supporters of slow fashion, which is why they design clothing intended to last.
Böhme was founded by Vivien and Fernanda Böhme, sisters from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil who immigrated to the United States as young girls. With the usual struggles of an immigrant family, work was inevitable from an early age. Their strong work ethic, dedication, and passion for success lead to them opening Böhme in 2006 at just 23 & 24 years old. Böhme is led by Vivien’s mind for business as CEO and Fernanda’s eye for design as Creative Director. Today we have store locations all across the western US and employ over 200 women. Böhme strive to work only with factories that provide a living wage and humane working conditions when developing pieces for their own private labels, which are manufactured both in the USA and abroad.
