Our goal is to help better the lives of the individuals who create our products.
Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) October 20, 2010
Object Mythology, the travel and adventure inspired product line known as much for their positive social impact as their luxurious collections, announces the launch of their new retail website which will house limited edition private label fashion, home accessories and distinctive vintage pieces, all of which will be available at http://www.objectmythology.com.
Object Mythology’s product line includes vintage and luxury handmade items from around the world including Buenos Aires, Argentina and Cambodia. Motivated by interior designer Karen Chien’s desire to make a positive social impact, the current product line features handmade scarves, gloves and throws made from the highest quality luxury baby alpaca fiber sourced in the Peruvian Andes. Baby alpaca is known for its hypo-allergenic quality as well as being more durable, light weight and easier to care for than wool.
Via their fashion and accessories collections, Object Mythology creates a positive social impact by working with economically disadvantaged groups in rural Peru. For example, the women who create Object Mythology’s baby alpaca fingerless gloves received their training through a program developed to empower single women to learn a skill that provides income for their families. Currently, over 100 individuals help create the Object Mythology baby alpaca products which positively impacts the 335 family members they support.
The full Object Mythology collection launching on the website includes scarves and wraps, fingerless gloves, leather handbags, throws, home decor and room decor.
Karen Chien, founder of Object Mythology says: “By identifying and building partnerships with highly skilled artisan groups in developing countries we’re able to execute our design vision and make a positive social impact. Our goal is to help better the lives of the individuals who create our products. Our buyers can help make a real difference with their purchases whether it is our baby alpaca products or one of our unique vintage items”.
