GUESS is proud to partner with I:CO to launch a nationwide wardrobe recycling program, RESOURCED. As part of our company’s sustainability plan, GUESS is encouraging customers to extend the life of their clothing. In exchange for bringing in 5 or more items of clothing or footwear to any local GUESS, GUESS Factory, G by GUESS, or Marciano store in the U.S., customers will receive 15% off a full-priced purchase in-store or online.
In our commitment to circular fashion and sustainability education, we have created this video for the RESOURCED program to help illustrate the meaning of clothing and footwear’s “next best life.” We've teamed up with a few local partners, such as a cotton farmer, meal delivery service, and music recording studio, to tell the story of how clothing and footwear may be “resourced”, or recycled into something new.
For a while now, weighted blankets have been a common topic in conversations surrounding anxiety, autism, ADHD, insomnia, and more. But is it possible the benefits of this all-encompassing hug of a blanket are really for everyone? Sheltered Co. says a resounding, “Yes.”
After searching for a solution and only finding sterile looking (and feeling) options, founder Pamela Hunter decided not only to create incredibly beautiful blankets with natural fabrics, but set out to shatter the stigma of who they were truly for – everyone.
When my middle daughter was diagnosed with sensory processing disorder, I was determined to find a way to help her. Sensory processing disorder is a neurological disorder that affects how the brain perceives and responds to sensory input from the outside. When my daughter would experience an episode that made her anxious, we would hold her in a very tight hug and she would slowly begin to calm down.
Of The Wolves
Imagine a chunky woven blanket, constructed of the most beautiful dead stock fabrics, made by hand and designed to feel like a hug. This is exactly the magic of a Sheltered Co. piece. Born out of her own trials, incredible mama, Pamela Hunter created Sheltered Co. I have known Pamela for years, watching her beautiful family grow from one daughter to three. The one constant throughout that time was Pamela’s hands have always been busy creating something–from wall hangings to woven baskets–each step of her creative process leading her to this calling. I had the honor of visiting Pamela at her home, conducting this entire interview from the comfort of her couch, curled up under one of her weighted blankets, and let me tell you I’ve never felt so hugged. Below we discuss what drove her to making these blankets and her dreams for the company. Be sure to order yours today–what are you *weighting* for!?
Weighted blankets are huge this year because they help relieve anxiety for some. This particular one is special because it's eco-friendly and made in the U.S.
Wolf And Friends
When Pamela Hunter's 4-year-old daughter Ransom was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder, she became passionate about designing a weighted blanket that would help her sleep. With her background in fashion and design, Pamela wanted to make blankets that weren't just therapeutic and functional; they had to be beautiful too. (We became obsessed with her brand and designs the minute she launched Sheltered Co. Instagram).
We love that Pamela created a wonderful solution for families while shattering the stigma that weighted blankets are sterile, clinical and only for those in hardship. Who wouldn't benefit from a warm, good hug after a long day?
