Indigenous Apparel - A Love-Making Fashion Company

This is not just another story about an organic, fair trade clothing line. Yes, Indigenous is a luxury, ethical fashion, B Corp that weaves low-impact dyes, organic fibers, and fair trade wages into every piece.  But this is a story about a community loving another; a company seeking balance for their spirits and the spirits of all beings. I guess you could call this a love story.

by Jocelyn Mercado | Pachamama Alliance

We live in a time of accelerating change. Technology, transportation, buying and selling of goods and services, and information sharing are all occurring faster than ever before in human history.
