Every morning I go through my personal emails and read some articles. I always like staying up to date with everything and find out things that are trending. So yesterday I came across a really cool article.
The article I was reading was from Refinery 29. It talked about making this summer fun with a DIY project that can’t go wrong. The creators from Wool and the Gang joined creative forces with the brand Soludos.
What you probably don’t know is that Wool and the Gang is a company that prides themselves with selling recycled wool. They are also such a unique company because they are all about teaching you how to make things yourself. Which to me sounds freaken amazing. Since I come from American Apparel I know how much that means to people. When I read their story on how they grew as a company I knew that I had to support them. “We’ve all done it, purchased low quality, cheap fast fashion made in factories abroad and wondered “how do they make it so cheap?” The reality is not good. There has to be a better way to produce, one that allows us to wear with pride and sleep soundly. So Wool and the Gang was born — pioneering fashion production that’s made in a sustainable way, bringing back knitting as a viable means of production for generations to come.” To read more about this company you can check them out in this link.
As for Soludos they are a well known brand known for their summer sandals. Once you go on their website you are going to want a pair of everything. So I had to stop that thought midway because of their prices. But the quality of the shoe is worth it.
So when I saw that the article mentioned that the price for these shoes are 45-55 dollars I went straight to their site. To my surprise the Wool and the Gang were sold out of all colors in my size. As I was accepting the fact that I missed my opportunity to get them I saw a note at the bottom of the website. It said that if they were sold out in your color to go to the Soludos website and check with them as well. Thank the universe that I saw that because they did have my size, well at least in black they did. I automatically pulled out my card and placed my order.
I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to get them in the mail! I really want to make my own summer sandals. I promise once I get them you’ll be the first to know.
Hope the rest of your day goes great!
