I'm so happy for my friend and colleague Rachel Faller for starting her new brand Tonlé. Through working with her for a few years during my time with Raven + Lily I have learned so much by seeing first hand the way she runs her business and is involved in the fair trade/ethical fashion community in Cambodia. She is passionate, energetic, creative, and a savvy business woman. I just received an email about her kickstarter campaign and immediately went to donate. You must see the über creative video they made using scrap fabric animations for their illustrations!
It is companies like hers that are making a difference in this world, not just for the people she works with, but also for the environment. Watch the video to see just what it means for a garment business to be zero waste. It takes a lot of creativity, time investment, and a passion for the planet to accomplish such a feat. It is an honor to know her and I hope you can support either through the campaign or by purchasing Tonlé products.
