We Are In This Together

March 22, 2020

As we find ourselves in these very confusing and difficult times, we have stepped back these past couple of days to gather our thoughts and put things into perspective. Some of you may have seen companies and small businesses asking for your support by purchasing their products or service. Yes, it is important so that people continue to be employed and have the ability to provide for their families. But most importantly, before you do, take care of yourself and your loved ones. With the uncertainty of how this will impact the economy and jobs, it’s important to be smart and conserve enough money for basic needs until this is over.

Being that we’re a small independent brand we don’t have significant expenses or people relying on this for a living. Instead of asking you to purchase any of our products we wanted to share some resources for financial help, education, and entertainment to hold you down. And as most of us find ourselves with a significant amount of time on our hands, we’d like to encourage you to work on that project you’ve had in the back of your mind, pick up that book you’ve been meaning to read, or do things to improve your well being like stretching or meditating.

With respect to our future plans, in the midst of us working on our 1-year anniversary collection, much of the world seems to have been brought to a halt. Therefore making it unclear if our planned release date would be a smart move. We will continue to analyze the situation and act accordingly. We are excited to share the projects we’ve been working on with you. As always, thank you for your ongoing support, and remember we are in this together.
