One Day of Peace! What an amazing idea!

Hello!  As you may know, F.A.C.T.S. is committed to transforming the world.  And because of this dedication we cannot ignore it when we come across amazing people who share the vision of a better world for everyone.  Take a look at this organization’s website http://www.peaceoneday.org and check out the video below.

From the site,

To some it’s just a single day. But to us, 21 September is a 24-hour platform forlife-saving activities around the world and an opportunity for individuals – particularly young people – to become involved in the peace process. We hope that our call for a Global Truce on Peace Day 2012 will help to institutionalise Peace Day and engage unprecedented numbers of people, regardless of national, cultural, political or religious identity, in the peaceful observance of 21 September.

They are doing important work and we should all support it in whatever way we can.  We can all be a part of a movement towards a more peaceful world. Let’s all join together and make this happen!


Sari-inspired Wraps, Your Opinion Needed

Please help us out! We have been looking for a new, improved name for our “silk flex-wraps.”

Sample Silk Flex-Wrap. See how beautiful it is? Help us Come up with a New Name!!!

As many of you know already, we,  at f.ac.t.s, pay careful attention to eco-friendly, fair-labor manufacturing practices. We have our site up and running, and we are on the closing side of our first 100 customers! For barely starting on July 1st, this is certainly something to celebrate!! (Take advantage of our Grand Opening special discount on our site (http://factsfashion.com/Shop.htm) before we reach 100 clients!

However, we find ourselves looking for a new name. The wraps are made from 100% recycled Indian sari cloth. Previously, we have called them “flex-wraps,” but per your suggestions, we find that the name does not completely capture the stunning elegance, versatility, and eco-friendliness of these wraps.

Tell us your suggestions, for a name that is fun, alluring, or vivacious! Your support means so much to us, and we can’t wait to hear from all of you!

  • Check back here continuously, to find out who won! The creator of the name we end up choosing will be given a special 20% discount on ANY wrap of choice!!! Fill out the bottom poll to participate!

Go eco-friendly fashion!! Help us make green fashion affordable and known!

How to Wear Your Flex-Wrap: The Sash Wrap Styles

Some of you were wondering how to do some of the intricate flex-wrap styles, featured on our first gallery, so we put together another quick video how-to. We show you here, specifically how to fashion the “Basic Sash Wrap” & the “Form-Fitting Sash Wrap.” More videos to come tomorrow~ and this time, they won’t be made in the middle of the night! ;) Please feel free to comment, if you have any questions.

 

 


Blind Shopping & A New Vision For Fashion

Because we realize that the values we, at F.A.C.T.S., stand for are somewhat complex, when we try to say it all in a paragraph, or even a few pages, we decided to start a Video Series on discussions about our values. We have neatly packed in our ideas into what we hope are brief but informative and easy-to-understand video logs. We start our Video Series with the first part of our tag line “Reforming Fashion,” and what we mean by that.  We cover commodification of fashion items and how we are so far-removed from what we buy that it’s hard to care about the conditions under which are clothes are made.

Please bear with us through the choppiness of this video. We could not get it started till past midnight last night, and we were both very exhausted, so it wasn’t as smooth as we hope our next ones will be! We welcome your comments on the topics we discuss and we encourage these videos to open conversation. We are always open to thoughts and suggestions, whether they agree with us or not. :)


July 3rd Tips: Wearing Your Eco-Friendly F.A.C.T.S. Flex-Wrap

The Bohemian Rope Flex-Wrap

So, we are missing a tripod, unfortunately. It should be arriving this week, but in the mean time, we thought we’d take a few rough photographs of creative inspirations on wearing your F.A.C.T.S. flex-wraps. There are so many beautiful designs you can transform them into. And our gallery (http://factsfashion.com/Flex-WrapFashionTips.htm)shows a few of our favorites. Remember, you can also accessorize your flex-wrap with belts and pins, but there are so many creative ways to wear them stand-alone as well.

We are excited for every purchase ordered, because it helps us meet our goal of giving at least $500 to Navdanya by October. Buy a flex-wrap for yourself or your sweetheart, or mother, or friend, and help us meet our goal! These wraps are absolutely stunning with both subtle and bold patterns. They are also perfect for hot summer weather, as they are very light and airy. And even if you get a long wrap, it can be transformed into a shorter dress, like the “Bohemian Rope” style, seen in the picture above to the left!

We are also continuing to upload youtube videos (subscribe to our youtube channel!) every few days to show you step-by-step instructions to our designs. If there is a specific picture in the gallery that you cannot wait to try, email us or comment here or on facebook, and we will do our best to get an instructional youtube video up as soon as possible. :)

Sample F.A.C.T.S. Flex-Wrap

As promised, we bring you examples of some basic ways to wear your eco-friendly flex-wraps. :) These flex-wraps can be worn in so many different ways, and most companies that sell similar-looking wraps only provide a few simple ways to wear them. Over this summer season, we will continue to post new designs, to inspire your fashion creativity and help you make the most out of your new F.A.C.T.S. flex-wraps!

We’ll start with the basic “Skirt-wrap” design:

Next is the “Basic Empress Gown” design. One of the easiest Dress options with these flex-wraps:

We wanted to also give you a variation of the basic empress gown design. We call it the “Keyhole Empress Gown”:

Finally, we leave you with another kind of dress option, the “Grecian Over-the-Shoulder Evening Gown”:
