Be Sweet

It seems to be all about felt lately - I have been seeing it everywhere! {Be Sweet} is a company with a conscience - founded on the principle of kindness. It was created in 2003 by Nadine Curtis, while she was living in Cape Town, South Africa. The mission is to bring socially and environmentally friendly products to the consumers of fashion. The products are meant to bring a sense of individual style, while helping to support developing communities around the world. She began wholesaling these handmade items in Northern California and upstate New York - now they can be found in over 200 boutiques around the world. Be Sweet works with job creation programs in South Africa, empowering women in the Xhosa tribe of Eastern Cape and Johannesburg. They earn fair wage, work in stable environments, and learn new skills - while enjoying their job. These women work on making mohair, bamboo and organic cotton yarns, accessories and home goods. Custom hand-dying is available on a lot of the items which is
super cool!
