Ethical Fashion and Why You Should be a Part of the Solution Not the Problem
A year ago, I was introduced to a weaving tradition in Guatemala. I’d been searching for textiles for a while and wanted to find the right artisans and community to work with. I came across a man named Juan in small town around the lake in Guatemala where I’d been searching.
He said he came from a long line of weavers and artisans and that he would love to show me his work. I walked up to his small little stall and was so in love with the weaving patterns they created.
I asked if I drew a pattern if they could weave it or something similar, he said yes.
I was instantly drawn to his work.
I felt inspired to help him and his family succeed in their work of preserving their ancient tradition.
Ever since, I have been learning from them and working together to create a unique handbag collection.
My name is Tori and I am the founder and CEO of Reveree.
