Ethical Fashion News and Good Thoughts
The Indigenous Blog
My summer vacation led me to a popular beach town followed by my new favorite ocean spot. See my family’s vacation pics, and the eco fashion styles I wore. I’m no celebrity or model, but I know how to rock some organic cotton.
INDIGENOUS is a founding member of B-Corporation. But that doesn't grant us B-Corp status for life. We must constantly earn that badge of honor with rigorous evaluations.
We love the high standards that B-Corporations must meet. And that's why we are again proud to announce that our status has been renewed with a score of 129.9, well above the average of 95.
The Double Layer Maxi Dress is our most popular dress. Our fastest selling, and a staff favorite besides... And we didn't think you could tell us anything new about it, but Sustainable Siren proved us wrong and wore it in a whole new way. We love the way she criss crossed the neckline straps to create a bohemian, sorceress vibe. It's boho fashion, but 100% ethically made—and we love it!
INDIGENOUS CEO and Co-Founder, Scott Leonard, was recently published on The Huffington Post. Read his reflections on why so many are searching for jobs that allow them to make the world a better place... Jobs like ours.
Becoming Idealists: Finding Meaning In The Workplace
Traveling to Peru is likely to shake you up and inspire you. It’s a place of rich culture. Layers of ancient civilizations and history live embedded in Peru’s vibrant and chaotic modern society. Yet it’s not necessarily a safe place, and not a wealthy one. Extreme poverty lurks down most streets, with hungry children on many doorsteps. It’s this kind of poverty that changes your perspective. It’s this constant realization that inspires many of us at INDIGENOUS to look for our worth beyond our paychecks. Instead, we have come to measure our worth by how much work we can give to an artisan group. By whether we can spread that work year round, making their jobs and lives easier and their income dependable. We measure our worth by our ability to reinvest in the communities we work with, and the ways we are able to connect individual artisans with micro financing and skills training.
