Wabi Sabi Eco Fashion Concept is launching via Kickstarter to offer it’s new organic fabrics and styles.We recently connected with founder Michele Helene Cohen to learn more; here is what she told us:
What is the social benefit you hope to achieve with or through your crowdfunding campaign?
Wabi Sabi Eco Fashion Concept uses only the best organic materials. That means we help to protect not only the environment but also the health and wellbeing of consumer as well as textile industry workers through the globe. We only work with skilled artisan craftsmen who create luxury quality products but work in a safe environment where they are paid fair wages.
How much money are you hoping to raise and why? How much have you raised so far?
We are hoping to raise $15,ooo dollars in order to go into production of our first signature collection called “sustainable City Style”. We also have stretch goals. If we reach $35,000 We can offer three more color options for the woven styles. If we reach $70,000 we can offer extended sizes.Our current sizes run from US 0 to 8. If we reach our stretch goal of $70,000 we will be able to expand the size offering including petites.
To date we have already raised 20% of our funding goal and we still have 24 days of the campaign left to go!
Whom are you trying to help with your project and why?
Fashion is one of the most contaminating industries. By helping to reduce this we are creating a better, safer and healthier planet for all.
What rewards, if any, are you offering to your supporters?
First of all we offer a selection of of dresses from this collection at a reduced price. We also have a t-shirt for just $25, a handmade gold jelwery set and then some fun rewards su ch a private photo shoot, a private trunk show partym or backers can even help us to design a product.
