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!
 

 

Changes Coming to 4 All Humanity

Change can always be scary. It's forging ahead into the unknown. Taking control of situations life has thrown your way and deciding to do things differently.

That's what we are doing here at 4 All Humanity. It's been a great 2 and a half years with you and we are so thankful that you have joined us for this journey! We have learned a ton over the last 30 odd months and want to put that learning to good use.

"Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better."  -Maya Angelu

When we first started, I was fresh out of the commercial apparel world and had never really designed for myself. I didn't truly know what my personal design aesthetic was. It took me awhile, but I  have found my voice as a designer. Designing is a very personal endeavor, and with each design I'm sharing a little bit of who I am and how I see the world, with you. And that is why I'm so excited about the changes being made at 4 All Humanity.

There is nothing to be worried about, we started as an ethical fashion brand and we will always be an ethical fashion brand, it's part of our DNA. The changes are only going to make us better, provide even more impact for our artisans, and give you better ethical fashion to love!

What does this mean for you?
Over the next couple of days we are going to be working behind the scenes getting everything ready. So while we are working away it's your last chance to pick-up your 4 All Humanity favorites. Maybe you've pinned em', wish-listed em,' or just said, "maybe one day." Well that one day is here! May 31st will be the last day that you will be able to purchase the 4 All Humanity classics on 4allhumanity.com.

June 1st we will be revealing what we have been working on! Here's a little sneak peek to get you excited!

 

If you have any questions about the changes, please feel free to comment or you can always email me at zoe@4allhumanity.com, I would love to talk with you!
