This is NOT business as usual.
Our partnerships are crucial to our mission. Contracting with Re-Invention as a workroom, where we are able to sew and create products for these designers and manufacturers, brings us closer to the reality of the dream of taking the Lydia Project from a training arm, to an actual business where more opportunities for work are provided and our training program is expanded.
In addition to making our own "gorgeous goods for good", Re-Invention's goal is to increase the work we can do for other designers and manufacturers so that once there is enough work, The Lydia Project will become its own business with work already in place. This way we are assured of the sustainability of the business. And in becoming partners, these designers and manufacturers share our dream to build more businesses in the US and other countries. Re-Invention cannot do this on its own. We know collaboration is key, and to beat this poverty thing we are stronger together!
Because of collaboration, the potential to create a powerful network of opportunity and job diversity will emerge, making an impact beyond what any of us can imagine today! We are so excited to introduce the businesses featured on this page. Please take a minute to find out who they are and visit their websites. We also strongly encourage you to purchase their products! We all shop, so why not shop and impact more than just a business's bottom line! Wouldn't it be great to know the pillows you purchased for your couch or the bag you bought for your vacation is something of purpose and great impact. And the more you purchase from Re-Invention and our partner companies, the more we’re able to insure the sustainability of the businesses we are building together.
