People and the planet come first. Hearts is an eco-fashion brand that offers consumers forward yet social conscious alternative to beautifully designed bags and accessories. One person at a time can truly contribute to the positive growth in our global economic climate while minimizing the effects on the Earth. Hearts diversified pieces are influenced through an artisan’s culture and their collective and natural resources.
Hearts’ in-house designers directly collaborate with each of the global and USA based artisans. A large majority of their items are handmade and design styles range from vintage to cultural to modern pieces. All pieces are guaranteed to be unique, exclusive, and made with people and the planet in mind.
We have chosen to use fashion as our voice to create awareness, progress, and world change. We are passionate about providing education and awareness so consumers have the knowledge to create change and be part of a community that supports it. Hearts hopes to inspire people to think differently about their purchases, not just in the fashion industry but in every aspect of consumerism.
The value a monetary purchase has is very powerful and can impact change on a global scale. We have created a holistic design approach that brings Environmental Sustainability back down to the human level by asking our artisans from around the world what their skills are and what materials are indigenous to their environment. Then our designers use these materials and work with the skills of the artisans to create beautiful products.
This approach is in place to reduce new supply streams that burden the environment, and by partnering with Carbonfund.org’s CarbonFree® Shipping program, our footprint is close to nothing.
“We are excited about our partnership with Carbonfund.org to offset our shipping, and happy that organizations like this exists. Our carbon footprint was a big concern because we work with artisans around the world. We want to empower them, but we did not want the environment to pay the costs. We are committed to our environmental stewardship, and foresee a long term partnership with Carbonfund.org “ – Michelle Gester, President
