SPUN Sustainable Collective is always seeking new indie designers, keeping our store's offerings fresh and making our customers happy. One of the biggest challenges about being a designer is breaking into the business. It's not only expensive and risky but also very difficult. SPUN Sustainable Collective helps support designers by providing them with shelf/rack space in a well-located store. We also help gain you exposure through marketing and business assistance, leaving you to focus on growing your brand. By joining SPUN Sustainable Collective, you are given your own shelf/rack space, personal bio about you and your label and are included in all of the collective's marketing outreach.

SPUN Sustainable Collective features designers who are creative, innovative and make quality products. If you are serious about your work and would like to join us at the collective, please contact SPUN designer, Sara Seumae to make an appointment.

To All Graduates...and students of life!

Graduation season is upon us. Whether you are done with high school, college, or just pre-school like my little one, it's time to celebrate! As you begin the next chapter in your life and look forward to all that's ahead, you may be reflecting on your past and making decisions as to your future.

David McCullough Jr., the son of the Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and a longtime English teacher at Wellesley High School in Wellesley, Massachusetts, gave his students a reality check at their graduation. I was raised with the same lessons that Mr. McCullough is urging students to learn. I was taught that I'm smart, funny, kind, strong, beautiful and special. But the main thing that my parent's wanted me to know was that I'm all of those things but only to them. That I will need to spend my life trying to show others who I am and what I'm about. And more importantly, that there are millions of others who are also all of those things and that their parents are telling them the same thing. That life isn't about who people say you are, but who you really are. And that you can get people's attention by doing good as well as bad, but you need to decide which way you want it.

So happy graduation to all of you and good luck making the right decisions in YOUR life!
