Happy Spring, friends! As we begin our month-long journey into “Planting the Seed” it only seems fitting to introduce you to a brand that embodies the notion that all great things begin with hope and intention. After all, one must plant the seed before we can bear fruit. All gardening metaphors aside, our debut contributor this month is one that brings inspiration to the table in spades.
Travis Gravette created Red Earth Trading Co. in 2010 as a way to bring fashion to the market while allowing artisans in East Africa to showcase their goods in a broader spectrum. Gravette’s mission is to “create hope and opportunity through commerce” and helping sustain economic growth for the artisans, all while donating a portion of the proceeds to Know Think Act. Not only does Red Earth Trading Co. do good, they also bring good. The Liz Bracelet and the Wanderer’s Wallet are a couple of personal favorites, but don’t let my preferences sway you. Browse through the shop and find your own favorite pieces. With Red Earth Trading Co., you can feel good about looking good.
