The IOU Project

i received a mail quite some time ago from The IOU Project with a link to their video:

i found the concept really intriguing & exciting because nurturing artisans and promoting sustainability is totally my cup of tea, but at the time their site had yet to be launched – so i decided to wait before sharing it with you. well, i am really impressed by the items now available for purchase in their shop (especially since i recently expressed my love for checks) and even more impressed to see the stories that each piece took from weaver to designer to artisan…

Check & Checked

i love plaid, even though it’s a “trend” that’s been around for years now. doubtless i will still love it long after it filters out of every department store. if i see a girl with a nice checked shirt tucked into good jeans or with a pair of well fit trousers i am guaranteed to turn and take a second look. so if you see me staring at you in the street, don’t be alarmed.
