So today is Black Friday, and the holiday madness has begun. I just want to get on my social media soapbox and say, please be conscious of what companies you choose to support through your holiday purchases. American consumers have so much power in dictating what economic practices prevail. Through your purchases, you can either improve someone’s life, or support economic systems that impoverish millions and destroy our planet. Many independent designers choose to gather their materials from local, eco-friendly businesses. So when you choose to support these artisans, you are not only helping them keep their businesses alive, but the money you spend is circulated through communities. So to put it bluntly, support an independent designer this holiday season, instead of a corporation. I will be posting some of my favorite designers from all over the world this month. Cheaper isn’t better, and there is a bigger price to pay than monetary.
