Celebrating Small Businesses: Small, Sustainable & Stylish!

Posted by on

Every spring, the Small Business Administration celebrates Small Business Week. The national event took place between May 5th and May 11th. The festivities of the week, highlight and celebrate entrepreneurs and their businesses. Small businesses are vital for the communities they serve and the US economy overall. The SBA reports that more than half of Americans either own or work for a small business.

Unrelated to Small Business Week (but just as pertinent), the 6th annual Fashion Revolution Week took place between April 22 through April 28th. Fashion Revolution Week was started by a group of fashion industry professionals in order to build consumer awareness that products we buy are made in a safe, clean and fair way.

We wanted to share these events with you, as both hold values that anchor Tolmee. We setup our small business to promote small businesses. We enjoy working with designers that are socially, ethically and environmentally responsible and love introducing their awesome products to you.

In turn, we would like to give a huge shout out to 3QUARTERS! Founded and based in Athens, 3QUARTERS is an upcycling fashion accessories brand. The company was founded on the principles of sustainable design, small-scale production and to raise awareness on slow, ethical, socially and environmentally conscious fashion.

The team behind 3QUARTERS, upcycle leftover awning fabrics used to shade Athenian balconies. They source all of their material locally and adhere to a policy of zero waste. Utilizing the fabrics they procure, they design bags that are utilitarian, stylish and reliable.

John & Gary, the dynamic duo behind 3QUARTERS, design and manufacture each bag separately. With colour and materials carefully selected, each bag is made and assembled by hand. It takes tremendous talent and a commitment to sustainable design to do what they do. Working with what is available, each bag they create is unique and one of a kind.

3QUARTERS is the perfect example of a great small business that is committed to the ideals of responsibility. The bags and accessories they create are beautiful and we are proud to have them as part of the Tolmee family. Their work inspires us to do what we do. We hope it does for you as well.

Be proud of your boldness. Be Tolmee
