Get Back to School Ready

This Back to School season, we have pulled six of our favorite Vi Bella pieces that will help you feel ready and to take on the world with your ethically sourced, sustainable style. We are sure you have your back to school clothing shopping done, but we want to focus on some ethically sourced accessories that can transform your wardrobe this fall. 
Why Ethical Fashion Matters

Why Ethical Fashion Matters

The fashion industry touches every life in some way or another and it goes even beyond the clothing we wear. It touches the lives of the farmers who grow the cotton, the woman who sews a t-shirt or bag, even to the people who wear products second hand.

Haiti Through a Child's Eyes

Haiti Through a Child's Eyes

Within moments, our plane would wing right over the tin and tented shantytowns. These are the jagged quarters of our fellow man, in the midst of a hardscrabble fight with hunger or thirst – some days uncertain who will win. We flew over top of these whole communities heaving with pain.
