Symbology crafts fashion that tells a story of empowerment. Their products merge artisanal techniques with forward-thinking designs, ensuring each item is truly unique. Handcrafted by women artisans in developing countries, every piece carries a touch of tradition, from block printing to embroidery, that tells tales of cultural heritage. Symbology’s dedication to sustainable living is evident:
- Hand woven and hand embroidered collections
- Use of vegan and all-natural materials like modal and cotton
- Adoption of environmentally friendly practices: 100% compostable mailers, reduced plastic in shipments, and low-impact dyeing
- Upcycled garment scraps for crafting bags
Moreover, the well-being of artisans is at the heart of Symbology. By providing livable wages, flexible hours, and fostering a clean working environment, they ensure artisans and their families thrive. Many of these artisans craft in spaces as intimate as their family farms or homes. Adding to its ethical approach, Symbology even offers scholarships through suppliers, helping artisans’ children access education.
Inclusivity isn’t just a buzzword for Symbology; it’s a commitment. They champion diversity, from the models they showcase to the sizing they offer, embracing all forms of beauty. The brand was inspired by founder Marissa Heyl’s trip to India, where she saw the potential of transforming traditional crafts into contemporary fashion. Each Symbology creation not only looks good but does good.
