About

"Everyday it's the same thing. Another trend has begun. Key kids! This might be the one"

I've been knitting since I was 8 years old and have always dreamed of selling my knits. But it wasn't until I heard the lyrics of this song(for the thousandth time) that it really hit me. The idea that I could not only open this shop and fulfill a dream of mine, but that I could and need to do so much more with it.

"With all of our fashion, we're still incomplete. A God of redemption could break our routine"

In a culture where we are brain swept into thinking we need and deserve more, where we buy and "treat ourselves" mindlessly, and where other cultures are suffering from poverty I believe it's time to break this routine and start a trend of love and purpose with every purchase.

We still need to buy things. We always will. But we don't need to buy things we will just throw away in a year because trends have changed or because it was poor quality in the first place. We need to start buying quality, items to not only support small businesses and hand makers around the world but to free ourselves from the captivity of owning more than we need. And to top that, we need to start equalizing people in poverty every time we buy. We need to slow down and help them catch up.


This is just my personal tiny step towards helping humanity but my goal is to inspire people to think about people living in poverty when walking into a store. To acknowledge our wealth and where it's most valuable when we decide to shop. To start really treating everyone in the world as equals by loving and caring for them by putting our money where our mouth is.
I believe that every time we shop we should ask ourselves what we can do for the world. There's a new way to shop and it's just that. To help the world.

To create New Humans we must become New Humans.

The Mission:
A new way to Shop, Think and Live=NewHumans.
