I was talking to a mid level shaper yesterday. In the past few days he had 5-6 requests to bootleg Sci-Fis.. His policy is to not copy designs, as it is many people's policy, and I've always supported that logic and ethical choice as a small business person.
But it got me thinking...... WHAT IF?
WHAT IF as a collective group everyone just started bootlegging this shit? Left and right on every corner just locally built Wi-fi's everywhere at a competitive price but with less painted stringers and better cores.... and made in USA logos?
Could we make an impact? Would it matter? "Imitation is the sincerest form of battery" 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔 #wifi#surfboards#eps#epoxy#surfing#notmadeintaiwan#notmadeinVietnam#madeintheusa#madeinfrance#madeinaustralia#eps#epoxy#fightback

People sometimes laugh when we wax lyrical about how amazing the @wearefeelgoodinc sunscreen is....like, how good can sunscreen be?? But honestly peeps, if you haven't tried it, it's the bomb 💣!!! 50+, no nasties and preservative free, and the luxe formula is sooooo good, no greasiness or ghosting. The coconut 🌴 is our personal fave (why not feel like you're on a tropical holiday every day?!) but the sensitive formula is great for kids and gets slathered all over the eczema-prone 10 month old small batch bub every day with no probs! We can send this awesome product out as a summer gift or just for you in our snazzy black bubble mailers. Send us an email or a text as we still haven't gotten around to putting it on the website...oops 🙊! Pic via @wearefeelgoodinc
G R E E N C H A I // After introducing this baby at the end of last year, it's become a firm fave in our pantry.
Chai tea is, in Ayurvedic medicine, considered to be calming and clarifying. With herbs like Cinnamon for circulation, Cardamom for mood-boosting, and Nutmeg for digestive health, we've swapped out the traditional black tea for antioxidant-rich Green.
Just another therapeutic + tasty tea to add to the Collection!
TELL A STORY // What drew me to designing textile prints is the incredible power they have to tell stories. This bespoke piece for the most important dress you will ever wear, was no different. Working closely with the bride and her designer, together we created a print that paid homage to this “gumnut goddess’” past, present and future. (See previous posts to learn a little more about her story). @flashcardgaudry loved her fabric so much, she didnt limit herself to textiles! Scroll to the left to take a look at her beautiful stationary designed in collaboration with @pepper_and_archie .
Designing one-off custom pieces are so special, I just can’t wait to do it again! If you are planning your own ethical wedding, you’ll find a little more about my bridal textile service and some amazing ethical wedding vendors too! @less_stuff_more_meaning :) Lauren
