Friends, I just have to tell you – my mind is EXPLODING with all the fair trade, ethical fashion supporters there are out there. Every time I search for something new I am coming up with more and more options for making purchases that make a difference.
Do you see my tabs open up there? Those are ALL different companies, individuals, ministries, businesses who provide products for sale for the support of changing families and lives around the world. And those aren’t even the ones we’ve already featured – I can’t even begin to touch on them all! Mind.Blowing. At some point I’m going to have to stop, it would appear the opportunities are endless!
It is so possible to change the way we shop, and so encouraging to see so many businesses changing the way things are produced. It has started, and we can join to be a part of the movement to change lives.
That brings me to our feature company for today:
Symbology Clothing is a boutique that specializes in mixing artisan textiles and styles with current fashion to bring us some pretty great looks while providing opportunities for local women.
How does Symbology make a difference?
3 central benefits with Symbology

I love this little Peacock clutch in mustard – it is hand-stamped with a technique that’s been used for thousands of years!
