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!
 

 

#smartisbeautiful: Robyn & Ashley Edition

This past spring we invited some pretty awesome and inspiring women into our studio to talk about #smartisbeautiful. Over the next couple of weeks we will be sharing with you their personal stories, how they define beauty, why education is important and what made them want to get involved with 4 All Humanity.

 

ROBYN DILLBERTO & ASHLEY : SISTERS

Robyn, is 100% Robyn. She is full of life and will tell you what she thinks. Passionate about mother hood and giving mothers a voice, she is a mom to three little ones and queen of the crocheted animal hats. Ashley too is full of life, and loves helping others. These two sisters have huge hearts and know how to make anything fun!

 

What made you (Robyn) want to be a part of this campaign?

Not too long ago, a family member offhandedly said "I wouldn't understand because I'm just a mom" in a context to mean that somehow because I choose to be a stay at home mom I am less intelligent than others. I want the world to recognize that women who choose full time motherhood are just as smart and capable as their working counterparts. I don't mind being the face of smart, beautiful women who are "just moms."

 

What is beauty to you?
Beauty is the manifestation of the good inside oneself.

What would you say to a girl in Guatemala going to school for the first time?

Soak in everything around you. Reach as high as you can and never stop learning or growing. God made you exactly the way you are and He thinks you are amazing!

How about you, Ashley, what would you say to a girl going to school for the first time?

I would say, keep your eyes and ears open. Soak up as much as you can.

 

 

Tell us what beauty is to you or your eduction journey! #smartisbeautiful {Empowered women, empower others}
