LETTER FROM THE DESIGNER:
A MANUFACTURING PROMISE
ANYTHING MADE outside of MY STUDIO IS PRODUCED WITH people that i consider ESSENTIAL TO BAGTAZO.
I am proud to say that I manufacture in the USA, and that I work with a network of small business to make this happen. From paper printers and leather sellers, to sewing houses, hat factories, and metalsmiths, everyone I work with is independently owned and operated.
I feel strongly about working with manufacturers in the US because I believe that factory workers are the glue that holds our entire society and economy together.
I HAVE ALSO BEEN AN ENVIRONMENTALIST SINCE I WAS A CHILD. FOR THIS REASON, I WORK WITH MATERIALS OF VERIFIABLE SOURCES, AND CONTINUALLY STRIVE TOWARDS BUILDING THE MOST SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS I CAN.
WHILE BAGTAZO MAY CHANGE OVER THE YEARS, THESE ARE MY CORE VALUES. FOR LACK OF BETTER WORDS, THIS IS MY PROMISE TO MYSELF, MY WORKING PARTNERS AND ALL BAGTAZO CUSTOMERS FOREVER AND EVER.
VIEW FROM EARTH EARRINGS
FULL MOON RING
A COUNTER-CAPITALIST COMMITMENT
BAGTAZO DONATES 10% OF ANNUAL SALES TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD, THE ACLU & THE ELTON JOHN AIDS FOUNDATION.
(BECAUSE SELLING AND CONSUMING OBJECTS aren't A MEANS TO AN END).
Love TO ALL!
