We’re Going to the NYC Marathon!!

Greetings!! We’ve had a really busy winter and spring season, so I’ve have very little time to blog. But, I had to share our exciting news — I’ve been chosen by the international organization Water for People to represent them in the 2016 NYC Marathon! On November 6th, I will be running with a team of 10 other athletes helping to bring awareness to the world-wide water crisis. As an avid runner, I’m so excited to be running NYC! Running for Water for People makes it possible for me to run in my dream race while raising funds for a cause I truly care about. I think Water for People is a great organization because over their 25 years, they’ve built water stations, pumps, toilet and sanitation facilities in impoverished communities in 9 countries around the world. I also admire the fact that Water for People has a small hands-on staff and its easy to find their accountability information, which is posted throughout their website and social media links. Check it out when you have the …

Eco-friendly Summer Style: Wood Rings & Hemp, Cotton, and Bamboo Jewelry

Greetings! Over the past few weeks, I have been searching high and low for new and interesting fabrics and materials that are not only earth-conscious but super stylish. I also spent some time sorting through mounds of fabric scraps and vintage clothing for inspiration, and I’ve been able to come up with some new products for our shop that I truly enjoyed creating.   This month, we created African Ankara rings, with beautiful scraps of Ankara set in eco-friendly walnut, oak, or maple wood. They make the perfect statement rings, bursting with color and lots of personality! We just listed a few of them on our website and Etsy site and they are already receiving great reviews 🙂 Also, our customers have been asking us to add more organic hemp and cotton earrings to our lineup and we have been hard at work getting them ready in time for Summer and the Back-to-School season. The earrings pictured here are hand printed with water based paints and are created with organic hemp, cotton, or bamboo fabric. …

Newness! ~~ Ankara, Stones & Gems

Greetings! Now that the new year is in full swing, we are looking to expand our collection of eco-friendly merchandise to include a whole new line of colorful and sustainable products. In the coming months, we will have tons of organic cotton, hemp, and bamboo products along with a brand new collection of African Ankara products made from remnants left over from our previous projects and from our personal collection of rare and discontinued fabric. Some of these items will include fabric button earrings, tote bags, pillows, men’s cuff links, tie clips and travel bags.     We will also expand our popular collection of beaded stretch stack-able bracelets. We create these beautiful bracelets from natural rock, stones, and semi-precious gems from the earth. We love acquiring these materials from Mama Africa and majestic India, reflecting our mixed cultural heritage. Botswana Agate, Indian Agate, Ethiopian Opal, are just some of the beautiful materials that you will see in our collection this spring 🙂 As we shared in previous posts, we are continuing to work on …

Zoetik: Eco-friendly Accessories From Our Shop

On January 1st of this year, we unveiled our brand new entirely handcrafted jewelry line which we created using sustainable, recycled and upcycled products. Many of our accessories include nuts, seeds and shells from all over the world such as African Raffia Palm nuts, Brazilian Acai seeds, Panamanian Tagua nuts, Caribbean Coconut and African cowry shells, and sea glass and shells from various seashores. We love creating our jewelry with lots of color, texture and movement while keeping the natural “feel” of our pieces intact. We are working to expand the line into hammered copper and silver, and always looking for other natural elements from the earth to add to future collections. We are really looking forward to our Men’s t-shirt line coming in February that has created quite a buzz already. We are already receiving orders on our African Pride t-shirt that was featured as a sneak peek on our Facebook fan page (http://www.facebook.com/zoetikmovement). These beautiful shirts will be created from hemp, bamboo and organic cotton, and will include positive uplifting images about culture, …
