As the ethical fashion industry continues to grow and inch a bit further towards what we consider mainstream, we have seen a lot of inspiring brands and stores launch and put their product lines out into the world.  Some have stood the test of time, while others have had to withdraw to regroup.  Let’s be honest, the fashion industry is extremely competitive and it’s not just about great design, but also a good combination of entrepreneurial drive, fashion industry knowledge, solid focus, business and marketing savvy, organization, excellent listening skills, and vision for the future, amongst other things. Sica Schmitz of Bead & Reel has the recipe for success and the world is taking notice.  Here is a peek into how she came up with the idea for Bead & Reel, some of her strategies in selecting brands, inspiring and fulfilling moments, and what she sees for the future of Bead & Reel.

For the team at Barefoot Eco Outfitters, that’s pure bliss. Maybe it is for you too.

I love all things upcycled and now that I’m a Mom, I’ve been looking more into upcycled children’s clothing.  If you’re like me, you asked for all second hand clothing on your baby registry practically begging people, “It’s okay please don’t buy it new, go to the thrift/consignment store, wash it, and I’ll think you’re even cooler, trust me!”  You want to continue that mindset as your child grows and luckily brands are making it easier for us.

Beru Kids is an ethical children's clothing brand repurposing deadstock materials into original styles for kids. Styles like harem pants, bomber jackets and breezy dresses from soft, durable fabrics in playful prints are designed and crafted locally in a partner factory implementing sustainable practices in downtown Los Angeles.
