BRANDED COLLECTIVE

Become a number to restore a name.
The BRANDED Collective employs survivors of human trafficking and local artisans who work together to design and handcraft the jewelry collection. 25% of the profits go to the rescue and restoration of survivors.

Branded

To mark with a branding iron. Any mark of disgrace, stigma, shame.
Many victims of human trafficking are BRANDED; their captors physically mark them with a number or symbol. The process is often violent: a forced tattoo, a burn or a knife cut. When you receive your item from the BRANDED Collective, you are BRANDED. Each piece contains a unique number that represents one of the millions trapped in the nightmare of trafficking.

Collective:

Something done by people acting as a group. Shared by all members of the group. A cooperative enterprise. We are the BRANDED collective: buyers, survivors, entrepreneurs, artisans. Together we wear the story, share the story and change the story.

Dr. Squatch

Shave Brush

There is something to be said about an old school shave. Instead of finding a local barbershop, Dr. Squatch is bringing you all the necessary tools for shaving the traditional way right at home. This shave brush includes a strong black handle on one end and soft synthetic bristles on the other. This company is not only dedicated to traditional methods of shaving, but they also support animal-cruelty-free materials and all-natural soaps.

While doing his research, he discovered that commercial, mass-produced soap not only contains harmful chemicals, but is also devoid of the nourishing, good-for-your-skin ingredients. He also noticed that there wasn’t a company out there that was making honest, all-natural soap for dudes at a reasonable price. Skin nourishing, masculine scents, glorious lather, handmade in the USA, no harsh chemicals.

LOLITA MIA

Elena Gil of Lolita Mia and Hallie Swope of WestPack have been collaborating for months to come out with a WestPack exclusive line of handmade products each season. Elena began Lolita Mia in 2011 as an experiment before heading to Florence, Italy to begin her 3-year study of Contemporary Art Jewelry at Alchimia. The results of the first collection surpassed her expectations, encouraging her to continue with the brand as a side-job during her period abroad. Today, the young designer is back in her homeland and with the raising demand for the products she has decided to incorporate local artisan women to help her elaborate the pieces. “I believe that the value of Lolita Mia’s accessories rely in that they are completely handmade and that I take my time to design each one of them until they are perfect and ready to adore by someone else. I began doing them myself in my studio, but as I got higher requests I had to change strategies. I didn’t want to sacrifice the handmade quality or the time spent to make each piece unique, so I thought that I could incorporate female artisans to collaborate with. This way I could not only continue the essence of the brand, but add more value to it by promoting and helping other women and their families as well”, says the designer. Hallie and Elena became fast friends, talking daily about designs and all of the things they could do together. The collaboration came naturally, both being passionate about empowering others and making an impact yet equally passionate for design. And so it began, this line came alive and we are so thrilled to bring it to you.

Daneson

Daneson is fiercely independent.  Our mantra is: 'It is better to sleep well than it is to eat well.'  And with this in mind we keep it honest: 

•All of our suppliers, barring Scotch from Islay and corks from Portugal, are either American or Canadian.
•We're based, weather permitting, out of Georgian Bay on Lake Huron in Canada.
•Daneson is committed to protecting the world in which we live in. For every one tree we use, we plant one hundred trees with a priority towards non-harvest regions. Give more than you take. It’s that simple.
•In simple terms, if one acre of forest goes into Daneson then, at the very least, one acre comes out of Daneson in forest preservation.

Daneson Toothpicks

A toothpick is more than just a toothpick.  With the right recipe a Daneson can bring back memories, relax the mind, complete a meal or distinguish a character.
