MEET THE ARTISTS

I like knowing that when I buy a new pair of shoes, I'm actually helping another business woman live her dream, and get to make a difference in someone's life across the world. I love that. 

Kristin

Every time I wear my boots, people ask about them. To be able to tell the story of craftsmanship, the women who create beautiful textiles, and the mission of The Root Collective is an honor.

Ronne

For me, these were a gateway to the world of ethical fashion. Now I know I'm spending more but for quality pieces that are providing work and dignity. I love the vision and mission of the company
