For those who do not know, we normally bid and also purchase wholesale clothing that might otherwise not end up being bought. Ever wonder why we only have a few of each design? Now you know. As a self funded social enterprise, we don't have a huge budget to work with and this has forced us to be innovative in our thinking and small biz moves.
It has always been a fear of ours (or rather Emily's), that we'd get stuck with merchandise we could not move. So she prefers smaller orders that are for sure going to fly off the shelf. Also, after we discovered that the fashion industry is the second largest waste producer in the world, we decided we were going to do our part to help reduce waste, like a good percentage of our suppliers do around the world. For instance, we no longer ship items with ANY plastic, we no longer use plastic bags to package our purchases at pop-ups or in-store. We bid on "overstock" or "deadstock" (we finally got a seat at several bidding and wholesale distributing tables) and we get them to you at pocket friendly prices.
This week, from our overstock purchases, we have a new collection of socks in stock.
Socks are some of our bestsellers and so we got on URStyle and decided to create sets. We think the secret socks would be perfect for fitness wear and also for flat shoes. Some days, you just need socks with your flats and we've got you covered. The neon colors are to remind you in between life's seriousness that you are allowed to smile and be joyful even though things get heavy (choose happiness anyway).

Tell a friend about our socks (and everything else) and THANK YOU for shopping us across the globe.
We love and appreciate each and every one of you.

PS: Here is the latest mix from one of our favorite DJs who was based in Australia and is now back home in Kenya.
Listen to the mix while you drive, while working and everywhere else.
Wishing you peace, good vibes, love and neon colored socks.
