Ten percent of each Nettle’s Tale swimsuit is donated to an organization chosen by the woman who inspired its design. This blog post is the first in a series about the company's 10% Club.
If the paint brushes in our shop window confused you this summer, we’re sorry. To clarify, we sell swimsuits and other items for west coast living like TURKISH TOWELS and CANDLES, not home renovation supplies.
Blame the people at CREATIVE LIFE, a community arts initiative with Youth Unlimited and member of Nettle’s Tale 10% Club. These guys run weekly drop-ins and instructional workshops for young people in East Vancouver who are facing homelessness, poverty, addiction and exploitation.
Earlier this summer, one of these workshops decked out our digs in every shade of blue. The nautical colour palette is inspired by the places you go in your suit: turquoise shorelines, ocean indigo, sapphire lakes and cobalt skies.
