In 1999, Dave Bolotsky visited a Smithsonian Museum craft show in Washington D.C. and was fascinated by the variety of unique handmade goods and the talented people who created them. He saw a significant demand for beautiful design and quality products. He also realized the artists who created the pieces were often traveling great distances in order to sell their designs at the show. Inspired by his experience, Dave had a vision to create an online marketplace to connect makers and their creations with individuals looking for truly special goods, regardless of the physical distance between the maker and the shopper. Dave turned this idea into UncommonGoods, an online marketplace brimming with unique products, which meet the highest standards for design and social responsibility.

Rose & Willard: Empowering, Sustainable, Ethical Elegance from Great Britain
Written by Carolina Flaminia Perrone - Saturday, 12 March 2016

Only 60 years ago, women were mostly wearing aprons and impractical cocktail dresses.  Once they began competing for jobs traditionally held by men - politicians, judges, stock brokers, CEOs - women had to come up with wardrobes that would communicate their reliability, skills, professionalism, and ability to get the job done as well as their male counterparts.  In the workplace, men had suits that inspired respect, power and trust.  What did women have?


Forced to prove themselves in a male-dominated, gender-biased world which, to this day, still operates under the unspoken rules of glass ceilings, sexism, unequal pay and hiring criteria, women often found themselves losing their own sense of identity and femininity, and ended up adopting more and more of the masculine style, appearance, and character traits.


Heidy Rehman, founder of Rose & Willard, a British ‘feminist’ fashion brand that offers career women uniquely feminine, luxurious, elegant, refined, high quality, versatile, and ethical womenswear, shared her insights about her experience and vision with EFW.
