Can’t resist buying Fast Fashion? Some tips for you.
We all know now that Fast Fashion and Fast food isn’t good for us or our world, but some of us do not know how to make that switch.
Here are some tips to help you being addicted to mass-media, mass production.
1.Feeding your vanity doesn’t give you long lasting happiness.
Just like junk food without real nutrition, buying a piece of garment that is not made of care and love; from birth to finish will result in a “incomplete” sensation or emotion.
According to modern neurology, our awareness is in every cell of our body.
So we believe if you wear ethically sourced, organic garment, you’d have a longer and more complete sensation of wellness and beauty! Beyond what the eyes can detect. We want people to experience true love that is wholesome.
Let’s admire ourselves and build a lasting, sustainable connection to the world around us.
2. If you are addicted to buying cloth for quick fixes and feeling guilty:
Our subconscious doesn’t know the difference between reality and TV images, It is easy to be brain washed and then it auto-plays and we make impulsive buying decisions. Mindfulness training will help you clear your mind and hear your own inner voice.
The benefit? You’d feel much more creative and confident!
We don’t blame you for feeling confused or brain-washed by media. After all we live in a world of contradictions. As designers for a long time we weren’t sure if buying H&M was really that evil or not.
Who doesn’t want to be accepted, belong, loved, and admired?
And if fast fashion serves these dreams for cheap, and brainwash us that we’ll get real friendship and love? No wonder they can succeed in the market.
But we all know how that doesn’t last. At the end of the day only true love for ourselves and our world will grant us true happiness.
3. Build awareness to fight being mindless in our consumption.
If you are not already into meditation or yoga, we suggest that you do. Great way to really find our own inner voice. Our Harem pants are so comfy for both! Click here
Our body and mind is connected, so if you fix one, you’ll effect the other. There are lots of meditation and yoga centers all over Thailand. Just google it for some result.
4. Travel and expand your awareness
If you really are too busy and can’t fight the noise the media has fed into our subconscious, then take a trip!
Travel to Mexico, Bangladesh, China, or Cambodia… while you can enjoy our unspoiled nature for a cheaper price, at the same time you’d realize how people in developing countries are living due to industrialization.
If you fall in love with the nature or people in another country, you’ll see their welfare truly connected to yours. Then you wouldn’t want the rivers running red with poisonous dyes, as women being forced to work far away from home in huge factories in terrible conditions just to feed their children.
In Thai culture greatly influenced by Buddhism, mindfulness and compassion can be trained. It will take small steps of good deeds to transform yourself.
We don’t want to guilt-trip people into buying our items, but is is true we have very slow sales, as well as much lower margins compared to selling mass-produced clothing items. We as a brand do not wish to attack fast fashion store. After all they are trying to serve the surface demand of our emotional need.
However everyone has many levels, our inner core all want true peace, real love, for ourselves and things around us.
So please, give us a chance, we await your responses with anticipation.
