Liberti, a new lifestyle brand for the conscious American consumer, has launched a campaign to empower those often forgotten. The mission is to reduce the fast fashion craze by providing stylish handmade accessories and lifestyle products that are made by resettled refugees living in America. It is estimated that the average person today has four times more clothing and accessories than in the 1980s, which is more than any other time in history (Siegle, 2012).
In America there is a growing desire for products created by artisans with a sense of culture and meaning – the market is full of great brands making a difference in countries around the globe but we often forget our own communities and our needs here at home.
“Today’s consumers are growing more and more socially conscious of all the products they are purchasing. When you make a purchase from Liberti, you are directly empowering those more vulnerable living right here in America and you can help transform their lives for the better,” said Founder Pamela Shelpuk.
Liberti creators are resettled refugees in America who take pride in the style and integrity of each and every piece made. Your purchase impacts these women with a living wage and opportunity to share in the profits. Many of these women come from war-torn and poverty-stricken regions of Asia such as Nepal, Burma and Bhutan, where they faced unspeakable acts of brutality, persecution and devastating natural disasters. Many have lived in squalor and deplorable tent cities with no running water for most of their lives.
The mission of Liberti is to help transform consumers into socially conscious change makers here in America, one transaction at a time. Support the Liberti KickStarter campaign, a one-of-a kind made in America model blending the best of business and social investing impact, employing resettled refugees living right here in our own backyards.
