Symbology was founded by Marissa Heyl after a trip to India in 2006. Her mission - in short - is to make fair trade sexy! Symbology strives to make fair trade the norm in the fashion industry, and fuses beautiful tradition fabrics and patterns from India and the West Bank with modern, fashion-forward designs. By partnering directly with artisans, these talented women are empowered to exercise their skills in weaving, block printing or embroidery. These artisans are able to continue their trades and traditions while earning wages that allow their families to thrive.
Each collection centers around a motif or theme, and I love the playfulness of each unique print! The fall/winter collection, entitled “Birds of a Feather”, features super flattering cuts in patterns that are printed by women in India using ancient hand-block printing methods.
