In two week’s time, the most important day of the entire year will arrive: Mother’s Day! It took me becoming a mom to realize just how significant and important this holiday truly is. Every year I try to buy my mom something practical and something that she would never buy herself. Well, I found the latter thanks to Symbology Clothing. I think any mother would be happy with any thing from their website, however I am smitten with one particular item, the stylized feather cashmere scarf in soft pink and black.
Since I wear mostly black, this scarf goes with everything in my closet. Not only is it my favorite color, but it is also ridiculously soft. My son loves snuggling up with me when I am wearing it! Plus, I adore all of the compliments that I receive when I wear it.
I am teaming up with Symbology Clothing and in honor of Mother’s Day all my readers will receive 30%-off any scarf with code MAMAGIFT entered at checkout.
Symbology Clothing employs women artisans from India and the West Bank, each bringing beautiful cultural artforms to the collections. They aim to produce both amazing clothing and to preserve traditional art forms in each garment — from Indian block printing to Palestinian weaving and Native American embroidery. They believe that the well-being of their artisans is central to their company, which is why they pay each of their artisans a livable wage, allowing them to provide for their families. We further believe that through sustained work opportunities and involvement in the design process, their artisan partners can affect change not just in their own lives, but throughout the world.
Founder Marissa Heyl was inspired to start Symbology Clothing while on a research trip to India to understand how fair trade empowers craftswomen. Watching Gita, a young mother of three, block print beautiful designs onto a tablecloth, Marissa envisioned it as a dress. As a result, Symbology was born with the goal of making fair trade sexy! She wanted to redefine the fashion industry, so that ethical fashion would no longer be the exception, but the norm. Symbology Clothing celebrates textile arts worldwide by fusing them with modern designs to create inspired, unique pieces that each tell a story of empowerment.
