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!
 

 

March Adventures

As the weather gets nicer and the sun shines a little bit brighter, we all breathe a sigh of relief. The long winter is over, we can bask in the sunshine... and kick off our shoes - letting our toes be free!

I think we have that same sense of relief here at 4 All Humanity. The gloom of the overcast winter days are gone and sunshine and fresh air are our new best friends and everything seems possible. And possibilities lead to projects.

We have had a busy March preparing for some really exciting projects. One of which I'm completely giddy about. I can't say too much before it is revealed, so I will give you this: Twelve women, a photographer, a story teller, and a dreamer will come together for one epic evening!

What other projects have we been working on? Scouting out new locations for photoshoots, reworking our labeling to better tell the stories of our artisans, and of course wearing really ridiculous sunglasses.

March flew by and we are ready for whatever April brings our way!
