When innovative design melded with a pioneering effort to help empower women, 31 Bits brought vision to life. 31 Bits was created to help women in Uganda rise above poverty through creating jobs that maximize their creative abilities. What came out of the initiative was not only beautiful handmade pieces, but a community that fosters self-worth along with sustenance.

The Kustom Evolution Series: A Shoe With No Footprint
The folks at Kustom like life in the 21st century… the waves, the temperature…and want to keep it this way. Kustom’s Environmental Mission, or E-mission, is to produce footwear that aims to as gentle as it can be on Mother Nature. Products carrying the E-mission tag (view all E-mission styles HERE) are made from natural fabrics like hemp and cotton. Where glues are used they are water based, the laces are made from plastic bottles, and the insole boards, (under your feet) also contain recycled materials. A low-waste production technique pumps out the super-light soles and carbon offsets have been purchased too lessen the footprint of the design and manufacturing process. Is this a shoe with no environmental footprint … perhaps not yet. But Kustom’s ongoing E-mission is to continue to improve and work towards something better.
Look like a grom drew this tee to you? You’d be right on the money spot. His name is Calvin. Kid Creature is the brain child of said kid. The 11 year old artist and surfer created Kid Creature to help flight cystic fibrosis, donating 10% of sales profit to the cause. The designs are pure, true & capture the essence of a kid with a huge imagination and a gift of expression. Adding to the fun, the tees are made to be worn inside-out (a removable tag makes it look all legit-like).
By sporting Kid Creature, you are helping the fight for breath that many kids are struggling with every day.
