04 Jan Old and New
Endings and beginnings bring about a lot of emotions in people. That longing to hold on to what was as we venture forward into the unknown is something we, as humans, find reassuring. We are not blind to notice that the world around us is constantly changing and that we MUST evolve with it.
Fast fashion is slowly fading as consumers are getting smarter and more ethical choices are highly accessible. No retailer will survive in the next decade or so unless they have some form of transparency and sustainability in their policies. It is up to us end-users to transition our world into a full circular economy.
I was fortunate enough to be one of the pioneers of incorporating traditional practices into the modern lifestyle. To witness first-hand the value of an ancient discipline passed on to generations and to assist in manifesting it for today’s needs is nothing short of awe-inspiring.
CHECK ALPAS BAG here
Featuring the ALPAS backpack bag with its classic shape and pragmatic volume, one may take it from their everyday adventures, to a summer getaway, and even to their corporate life! A perfect example of old and new coming together to bring about a notably durable, functional and yet chic lifestyle. Chuck in your picnic blanket, your Surface Pro, or your Switch Lite fresh from Santa and you’re good to go wherever your feet takes you.
We only have one earth and every mindful purchase and utility extends our time living in it. Before all the clichés, reminiscences, and future hopefuls come exploding their way into your social media, I want to thank you all in supporting my brand, our earth, and the traditional owners of our land. Cheers to another year, fellow earthlings!
