Greetings and welcome to the official blog of the Zoetik Movement!
We are so excited to be embarking on this new adventure as first-time bloggers (yay!) and we are even more excited that you are here with us on our new journey. We are hoping to learn and grow with you and to discover everything this beautiful world has to offer.
So, what is Zoetik exactly?
Well, first it is the name of the company that my husband Teon and I started in 2001. We create clothing, accessories and home goods from eco-friendly sustainable materials. Many of our products also reflect my Caribbean, African, and East Indian heritage, and we also pay homage to many other amazing cultures around the globe from the Pacific Islands to the Middle East and beyond.
More products being added real soon! Check out our website here: http://www.zoetikmovement.com
Secondly, Zoetik is a concept I discovered while searching for a name for our handmade business. It took me about three weeks to find a word in the dictionary (yes, I still use a real paper dictionary lol) that would encompass everything that our company stood for. As it turns out, the definition of Zoetik, written in the dictionary as zoetic, with a c, means living, alive, vibrant, knowing, cognizant…
I played around with the spelling a bit, but the concept was perfect in describing our vision for our company. The name reflects our strong belief in bringing life and light to a potentially dark world. There is so much heartache and despair in this world, its astounding. But, in our 20+ years together, my husband and I share the same vision for Zoetik–that this business enables us to help our brothers and sisters all over the world, through the use of ethical, earth-friendly materials and the promotion of positive and uplifting people, places and things.
One of the most important aspects of our business is that we feature a different charity or organization each month in our Charity of the Month section on our website and here on this blog. We also donate $1 from every sale to the selected charity of the month 🙂
We pray that Zoetik brings hope and joy to everyone we come in contact with, and that anyone who buys our products feel the love, joy, commitment and divine purpose that goes into each and every item we create.
This blog serves as an extension of our handmade business and our personal values, and we hope to uplift and inspire you through our posts and interaction with you. We would love for you—our family, friends and fans—to join our movement toward better health, happiness, eco-consiousness, multicultural awareness, and spiritual understanding and expression.
