About Autumn Teneyl:
Capricious and captivating, Autumn Teneyl is a celebration of eclectic chic: Luscious organics, stretch laces, vibrant colors, soft and flowing, body-conscious details; Glorious pants, tops and dresses with no binding stiffness to disrupt the grace and beauty of females in motion. It’s not just a look ~ it’s a statement!

The Designer:

Autumn Teneyl is a fashion designer and artist best known for her feminine, free‐flowing designs. In the summer of 2000, Autumn found her calling as a fashion designer. Her fluid designs were born against the natural backdrop of mountain music festivals, giant Aspen and bustling streams. The mountain chic, homegrown label is owned by the designer, who is committed to an ethical and eco-conscious model in all areas of the business. Autumn is an advocate for the environment and the human condition, and she devotes annual time and revenue to these causes. Autumn utilizes domestically made organic fabrics and re-purposed designer‐end natural & synthetic fabrics to reduce the environmental burden of textile manufacturing. ATD offsets 100% of their operational and travel costs by purchasing renewable energy credits (REC’s) and has donated tens of thousands of dollars yearly to organizations such as the AIDS Foundation, Free A Child, public radio stations (KDNK, KGNU, KSUT, eTown) and environmental groups like Colorado Wild. Every garment is handmade in Colorado, USA.

About:
Karen Porte had an idea. The space between the upright handles of a rolling bag is just about the right size to hold a coffee cup. So Karen rolled up her sleeves and went to work inventing the tugo. Clearly, this multi-tasking mom and emergency room nurse is a problem solver.

“It happens to all of us,” says Karen, “Travelers have their briefcase, laptop, handbag, and carry-on, in a hurry to get to the gate while juggling a meal and beverage purchased in the terminal – they just run out of hands.”

But Karen and her husband, Tom, want to do more than just solve problems. They want a product designed, developed and produced the right way. The tugo is manufactured in the USA and is made using materials without phthalates. The packaging is recyclable paperboard.

About:
Sundance Sheepskin and Leather was established as a family business in 1971. Now, 38 years later we pride ourselves in still being a small family owned and operated business. We hand make all of our products in a small workshop out of our home in our small Colorado mountain town of Guffey. Since 1976 we have been marketing our products at judged arts and crafts fairs, as well as running a mail order business. We attend approximately 20 shows annually in a six state region.
Call us for show schedules and information.

Green business practices
The Sundance family is committed to doing what we can to help the environment. We realize that the shoe industry is not the most environmentally friendly industry, but here are a few reasons that buying from Sundance can help make a difference:
*We have eliminated the toluene based adhesives from our product lines and have gone to a natural rubber based glue with stitched on techniques. Healthier for us and for the environment.
*We buy only US materials tanned locally, thus eliminating the huge amounts of oil required to ship materials from China and other parts of the world and reducing the “carbon footprint” of producing our products.
*The US tanneries that we use are subject to much higher environmental standards than their foreign competitors.
*We re-use cardboard boxes for all of our shipping and recycle anything we can.
*We recently started shipping all orders using UPS Carbon Neutral shipping to offset the environmental impacts of shipping.
*All of the Sundance Family lives within walking distance of our workshop!
*Our workshop is a highly efficient, passive solar design with wood heat.
*We are looking into the feasibility of installing an active solar and wind powered electric system to power our workshop – we’ll keep you posted on the progress.
*Creating products from sheepskin is using an otherwise wasted byproduct of the wool and lamb industry. Sheep are not raised solely for their skins.
*We are always looking for new ways to improve our practices and reduce our impact on our Mother Earth.

So, put on your warm fuzzy Sundance Sheepskin Slippers and turn down the thermostat!

About:
Global Girlfriend was created by Stacey Edgar in 2003 to help women worldwide gain economic security while providing you unique products and a simple way to help women in need. Our fair-trade boutique offers a line of trend-setting, women-made, fair-trade products including stylish apparel, accessories and gifts with one purpose — helping women in need help themselves. We believe passionately that economic opportunity for women holds the promise for real change in the world; because when women have an income, they reinvest in themselves and in their children’s health, education and nutrition, building stronger families and communities over time. Many women try desperately to make a living selling their artisan-quality goods but find that they have little access to market opportunities. Through fair-trade practices, Global Girlfriend brings the work of these disadvantaged groups directly to you. Global Girlfriend believes in forming long-term partnerships that provide women a fair living wage with equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance and development strategies to foster prosperity and reduce poverty.

* Women Made
We know that economic opportunities for women holds the promise for real change because with a sustainable income over time, a woman invests in her family’s health and education — things that really help break the cycle of poverty.

* Fair Trade
We also know that for women to thrive, those opportunities must reflect fair working conditions, many times non-traditional ones like working from home, and access to resources that provide a gateway into the global economy

* Eco-Friendly
We share one earth and it must be healthy for us all to thrive. We support women in producing products that solve their community environmental issues, producing healthier children, rivers, skies and world.

Global Girlfriend directs the charity royalty from each purchase to Camfed (Campaign for Female Education), a nonprofit organization dedicated to eradicating poverty in Africa through the education of girls and the empowerment of young women. Camfed works directly with girls and women in rural areas of Zimbabwe, Zambia, Ghana and Tanzania, providing educational and economic opportunities.

The charity royalty from each purchase at Global Girlfriend is directed to Camfed’s seed money micro-grant and micro-credit program. Camfed’s seed money micro-grant program is run by young women for young women, creating a bond of female solidarity that is integral to its success. Young women in the seed money program receive an initial micro-grant, which they do not have to repay, in order to launch a small business venture, benefiting themselves, their families, and their entire communities.
