Today I am introducing you guys to an incredible local Indy company with a passion to make a difference in our world through fashion.
byTavi is a project of the Center for Global Impact with a physical store location in Franklin, IN. This company started with Tavi, a sewing machine, and a need to provide for her family. Since 2008, byTavi has grown from 4 women sewing pillow cases to over 40 women hand-stitching high quality clothing and handbags. If you purchase a byTavi item, you will find the name of the seamstress who hand-stitched that piece on a small tag.
This company is 100% fair trade with a workshop located in Cambodia. The byTavi seamstresses live in areas where poverty is high and human trafficking is a significant risk. One of the main missions of byTavi is to provide a wage for these women that is four times above poverty level so they can provide for their families in a safe environment. The women receive lunch daily as well as an opportunity for Bible study on Wednesdays.
I am sharing one of my favorite tees with you today and I've styled it five ways. The byTavi slub tee is an essential basic that comes in a variety of colors and is comfortable. See how I've styled it below.
byTavi Slub Tee for Running Around Town
This first look is an easy go to that you'll find me in especially on weekends. I paired it with my favorite stretch denim and new TOMS that I can't get enough of.
byTavi Slub Tee as NYC Vibes
Whenever I wear all black, it takes me back to my time in NYC and Europe. It's classic and is a color that looks good on almost everyone. I spiced it up with these leopard strappy Steve Madden's from last year.
byTavi Slub Tee forSummer Concert Series
Can't you just see this byTavi tee at a summer concert in June? Denim skirts are a must and this top pairs perfectly with it. I added my jelly sandals from Urban Outfitters and round sunnies to complete this.
byTavi Slub Tee for your Camo Outfit
For whatever reason, camo has been my jam lately. I love that I can dress it up, dress it down, whatever I'm feeling. Plus utility jackets are a staple for spring and this one worked nicely to complete the outfit.
byTavi Slub Tee as a Modern Day Boss Babe
I am obsessed with tying scarves in my hair right now. It's kind of a modern spin on the 50s housewife look. You'll notice I paired this with a blush colored utility jacket and my new Sorel sandals that are so comfy.
If you're not convinced that you need your own byTavi slub tee, I don't know what to tell you. It's comfy, goes with everything, and you're supporting a company that has big dreams to make an impact. You can use the code TRENDY20 through April 30th to save 20% off your purchase in store and online. I also love their swing dresses. They fit so well and are another wardrobe basic.
Cheers to a great week ahead!
