        Without exception, when I wear one of the several Indigenous sweaters I have purchased, people comment "How beautiful, where did you get that?" Love it! And, I've owned some for a few years now - they are timeless fashion pieces. I LOVE each of Indigenous clothes!

        HI ~~ This Org. has been about SUSTAINABILITY and COMMUNITY building from the beginning and continues to exemplify the way of "right-relationship" with Mother Earth and respectful consumptive values with the spirit of creativity and traditional expression~.

        Indigenous makes real impact by providing sustainable economic futures for artisans in a manner that respects cultural traditions. And, Indigenous has invested in more than its own growth over the years, putting significant resources into advancing the vision and values of fair trade and organic, working hard to grow this vital sector. It is this transcendence of self-interest AND attention to smart, conscious business that enables Indigenous to rise to the top of my favorite list.
