Happy Women's Equality Day!
August 22, 2017
Women’s Equality Day was first initiated by the U.S. Congress in 1971 to commemorate the anniversary of the passing of the 19th amendment in 1920, granting women the right to vote. In honor of the approaching day on August 26th, we’re spreading girl power by showcasing some of our favorite lady-lead brands that you can check out in our store on South Congress Ave!
This beautiful line of jewelry, created by the supremely talented Jennifer Gaewsky, is designed and delicately handmade here in Austin. Made up of hundreds of hand-woven glass Japanese seed beads, Gaewsky’s line combines traditional techniques with modern design.
Best of all, the name Betty Alida is an homage to Gaewsky’s paternal and maternal grandmothers, Betty and Alida, immortalizing the memory of the amazing women in her life. Shop this collection in our shop!
Bitchstix is a face and body care line that creates all natural, non-GMO, palm oil-free beauty products, while reclaiming a word that has been used to offend and oppress women for generations, with the hopes to empower and educate while keeping your lips moisturized.
