About Us

Hello there!

If you’ve found us because you love sustainable products, you’re in the right place! If you're here because you’re passionate about fair trade production and making sure workers are taken care of, you’re in the right place! If you stumbled in here because you love a pretty picture— you are in the right place (and we hope you’ll stay for the thoughtful living journey!). So why are we here? Six years ago we uprooted our corporate, suburban life in search of more joy, more time enjoying our children, and fewer... check boxes. This space is where we share our ongoing journey toward a more fulfilling existence. In the years since, we’ve slowed down and taken the time to figure out what things are most important to us. We’ve had the opportunity to hone the values we want to share with our children. We’ve gotten to know them, and ourselves, so well. It hasn’t been easy, and there have been many bumps along the way, but we are a beautifully flawed work in progress. Living smaller and seeking joy has ignited a passion for sustainable living. It has afforded us the opportunity to know where our products are coming from, and who makes them. It has opened our eyes to products and processes that exploit people and the environment, and has challenged us to be better. To inspire better. So regardless of your reason for being here, we hope this moment, right now, will convince you to stay. Learn with us. Grow with us. Reveal and create a better world with us. 

Live well. Do good.
