Let us give thanks…

For all those we know and love, and all those we do not. Each and every being on this Earth has purpose, and we should be grateful for their presence in our lives. 

For us, here, at Verte Luxe, we are most thankful for you, our readers, our supporters and our brands. You are the reason we are here today, continuing our mission of transforming the way we live and consume to make our future a better place for all. Thank you for believing in our mission, and for believing in us! 

Now spread that love and gratitude to everyone and everything you encounter. Let that energy radiate out into the universe, spreading love and light all around. 

Happy Thanksgiving from
My Family to Yours!

Wishing you and your family a beautiful Thanksgiving full of love, food and gratitude!

Kata Banko Couture Introduces: Bohyne

Now introducing the next generation of Celia Grace fair trade bridal: Bohyne, by Kata Banko Couture’s Colleen Bankovich. 

Featuring cruelty-free, slow-fashion, fair trade bridal-wear using dead-stock and sustainable fabrics, Bohyne is part of Colleen’s mission to transform the bridal industry, but she needs your help to do it! 

Kata Banko is seeking to raise $30,000 to offset the costs of production, preparation and publicity for the new Bohyne line. Also, a portion of all donations will be gifted directly to their cooperative of dressmakers they partner with in Cambodia, to help pay for new resources and tools to expand work and present more opportunities to the people of the village. 

If interested in supporting the amazing work of Kata Banko and the cooperatives she partners with, please make a contribution to their Kickstarter to help create a sustainable future for wedding fashions.   
Monthly Challenge: Give Thanks
November is the month of gratitude–we give thanks around the Thanksgiving table, but that thanks could and should be extended to every day of the year. There is so much to be grateful for, and sometimes, just saying it out loud, or writing it down, helps you realize just how lucky you are.

We challenge you to give thanks every single day this month. Whether that’s just listing those things you’re grateful for out loud or writing them all down in a journal or diary, saying thanks with intention will help you realize there’s always something to be grateful for. Your health, the love of your family, delicious and nutritious food, the kind gesture of a stranger, the power of words, the warmth of a hug…it’s the little things, as well as the big, that make life worth living.
