Zoe Schumm founder 4 All HumanityDo you know Zoe? She's one of those double-major / double-minor-type students determined to change the world. While studying fashion design in college, Zoe also explored global issues including fair trade, workers' rights and supply chains. She's the kind of person who believes that anyone can make a difference. And she hopes you do too!

Zoe is also a talented fashion designer. Before joining the fair trade movement, Zoe worked for a major fashion design company and was frequently sought after to design custom bridal gowns. It was then that she realized that her biggest impact on the world could be through her fabric and business decisions.

In 2012, Zoe and her husband, Joshua, launched a new brand, 4 All Humanity. The company combines Zoe's eye for fashion with her love for all things global. Zoe & Joshua work with artisans in Guatemala and connect them to the global market, and provide technical assistance to help their small business grow.

Receiving a fair, livable wage empowers artisans to hone their craft and change their lives. Thanks to Fair Trade principles, artisans working with 4 All Humanity are able to earn more than they would at another job in their community. This translates to greater investment in their families and their neighborhoods.

Thanks for stopping by! We hope you'll explore 4 All Humanity's online shop and look through our shelves for unique, one-of-a-kind lovelies. Thank you for your support!
 

 

January Sketchbook: Traveling to Guatemala

January is a month full of newness. Everyone is deciding their New Year's resolutions and setting goals for the new year! It's an exciting time. We're just as excited about a new year as everyone else, such possibility! This year I started the year off with a journey to Guatemala to work with a few of our partner artisans. I've put together a few of my favorite photos from the trip.

Working with our artisans always leaves me feeling full of inspiration and hope. Hope for their futures and the exciting new products that we are developing. Isn't it hope for a better future that gets us so excited for setting new goals and resolutions every year? Hope is an essential part of life, so spread some hope today to someone who needs it.

Love always,
-Zoe
