14 Asian-Owned Jewelry Brands to Support Today and Every Day

The wave of anti-Asian violence currently happening around the country is truly horrifying, and there are certain steps we all need to take to fight racism and show our support for the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. In terms of the latter, one of the simplest ways to lend a hand is by directing your spending toward Asian-owned small businesses.

Learning Basic Sewing Techniques Is the Easiest Way to Support Sustainable Fashion

Truly sustainable fashion starts with our own two hands. Buying fewer clothes, finding secondhand pieces, or investing in eco-conscious garments is a great start, but learning a few basic hand-sewing techniques is the easiest way to reduce the amount of clothes going to landfill. If you're anything like us, then maybe you never learned how to sew. Instead of figuring out how to sew a loose button, fix a snagged thread on a jumper, or patch a pair of socks, we often end up buying something new because it seems easier. Our relationship with fast fashion is kind of bizarre when you really think about it. If we compare fashion and clothing to food and cooking, then your perspective really begins to shift.
