- OUR TEAM
Elizabeth Roney - Designer
Elizabeth is the perfect combination of creative adventurer and tenacious, compassionate pioneer. She makes amazing food while never following a recipe but almost always burns the chocolate chip cookies. She’s never met an adventure she did not embrace giving her a record for visiting over 30 countries in her first 30 years of life. She does her weekly grocery shopping at the international mart, her Black Friday shopping at Goodwill, and claims that visiting the hardware store is more daunting than an African market. She is the woman I go to for fashion advice, great photography, and a compassionate ear.
Elizabeth is tenacious about what matters in life. Whether its hunting down another package stuck in some international customs office or searching every store in a city for a place to source ethically produced fabric so that women can have jobs sewing fair trade clothing…her life is fueled by a deep integrity, compassion, and desire to fight for justice for women living internationally. - Elizabeth's sister Ruth Ann -
DeeDee Hatchell - Wholesale Accounts Manager
DeeDee and I have been friends since college - she is one of the kindest and smartest people you will ever meet. We have changed tires together, broken into buildings together, and various other shenanigans. DeeDee taught third grade until she moved with her husband to Coban, Guatemala were they worked in community development for several rural Mayan communities. Their work in Guatemala helped us find our artisan partners there. Today DeeDee lives with her husband and young son in Nashville. If you have a wholesale account with us - you probably have had the pleasure of talking to her. - Eizabeth -
Fair Trade Partners
Some of the most amazing women around the world make our clothes. Women who give up so much for their children to have a better life. We wish you could meet all of them, but until then here is a little more about the NGO's we partner with.
