A mission statement after my own heart. As a part of my personal philosophy of fewer better, not over saturating or over creating, fewer products that are better made. Amie is a collection of female artisans that all have a common thread. Sustainability, accountability, one-of-a-kind small batch creations. In a world of limitless choices, where so much of the creation process is lost, Amie stands firmly on the grounds of focusing on the makers behind the work.
"WE ARE MAKERS, NOT MACHINES"
"Our Amie mission is to support artisans though purchasing their handmade goods. Everything we want is at our finger tips, but at what cost? Fast fashion is the third largest pollutant on the planet. Factory workers oversees work in de-regulated, hazardous environments. Long days, low wages, and little to no breaks are the norm. We believe changing our shopping habits can change lives. We understand the importance of working to provide for families. However, Amie does not support women, children, and men being treated as slaves for something to show up at the click of a button. Let's do something about it."
When I received all of this product, the first thought that came to mind was the attention to detail. The creation of products, the quality of material and that each piece truly is one of a kind.
"FEMALE, NOT FACTORY"
"We believe in simple, sustainable designs. We don't follow trends that come and go. Our collection is thoughtfully curated piece by piece. All items are made in small batches, so stock is limited. As artists, we like to push boundaries and sometimes buttons. We have limited-edition and one-of-a-kind products to keep your style fresh and uniquely yours."
Sustainability is something I am very passionate about within my creation process. Sustainably farmed lumber and creating as little waste as possible. Loving and caring for mama earth is heavy on all of our hearts and every little effort counts.
"WE LOVE THE EARTH"
"We start by purchasing products that last. We consciously choose to reduce, re-use, and recycle."
"All Amie packaging is purchased domestically and made from sustainable materials to reduce global impact. We can and will uphold sustainable practices through our reusable, environmentally-conscious packaging. We appreciate your help towards making the planet a greener, happier place. "
Supporting Amie comes easy for me, they hit all the points that are important when brining products into my home. Giving back to our communities as citizens and as humans links us all together. We truly are all in this together and supporting/helping those in need is what it's all about.
"5% OF SALES ARE DONATED TO NON-PROFITS
Amie is socially responsible and centered around community. We donate 5% of sales to charities and non-profit organizations."
Honored to share this awesome collective of women makers and a woman run small business.
