Since I started this project, I wanted to convey an important message. To educate and be the change I want to see in the world. To be a cause with a brand and through good products share good intentions. Livanna Be the Change, is a project that also seeks to open new communi- cation lines between parents and children, create conversations to share ideas from all over the world. Through our products, we want to create a change of mindset, share the message about the importance of appreciating and taking care of the planet at each moment; promote values of self-esteem among children and involve all those who are interested in being part of a real change.
I have four beautiful children who inspire me to be the change I want to see in the world. They surprise me every day! So I work on their growth and education to make them better people in the world. Not just in their closest circle, but with the world and the planet.Children are the smartest, most honest and sensitive people I know, so I strongly believe in the responsibility that we adults have to convey the right message and set an example that will help them in growing up emotionally healthy.
We are a store that offers high quality pieces in all our products. We have a line for the little ones and it's worth to mention, that in Mexico we are the only ones offering these pieces made in cashmere and organic cotton. The jumpsuits and blankets are a success among first time moms! In addition, we have the collection Join the movement - be the change composed by t-shirts made in cotton and the pants, which are our bestseller for the older ones. They are super comfortable pieces that children don't want to take off.
We have two lines. The first one, and the children's favorite one: Livanna Be the Change where we use cotton in the shirts, the pants and the dresses. And Livanna Clothing for babies from 0 to 4 years old where we use the best cashmere; and merino and organic cotton for children from 2 to 16 years old. It is important to mention that we have organic cotton certification. For babies, it is important to use natural fibers because they adapt to the ideal ambient temperature for them.
We work with several factories in India where they make the pattern and testing of basic silhouettes of great fit. It is very important for us to work with factories that pay fairly and respect the workers. We made a collection with artisans from the Leon XIII Foundation in Chiapas called Cactus. Each of the 'Cactus' were embroidered by hand and through them we share the message about the danger of extinction from which these cactuses suffer. With the purchase of these pieces, we donate a percentage to the artisans of the foundation.
Communicate the message of change! There are many of us on this boat but we need more people who want to join in. With the purchases of Livanna Be The Change we also support criantia.org, a foundation focused on the principle of giving firm love by providing tools for parents to guide and educate their children. We seek to break down educational models learned in an unconscious way from our families of origin and create awareness of the successes and failures of the difficult but wonderful work of parenting, which will open the door to a better quality of life for them.
"Between the stimulus and the response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom" Viktor E. Frankl. My mother and grandfather are my favorite advisors but it can be summed up in this sentence.
Our T-shirt says it: Join the movement. Be the Change. Change begins with ourselves. In greeting the stranger, in letting the walker pass, in being aware of the person next to you. To not throw away trash, to help in any way we can! Then the person who wants to join in, is welcome to share our message. Be the Change is a change of thoughts and emotions for the new generations.
We have to be aware 24/7 of everything we do, what we say, what we think. We have the ability to choose all the time and our decisions define our lives and the lives of everyone around us.
We are here to change the world! It is up to us to generate change. It's not about following rules, making money and die. We are all born unique and with different characteristics that make us who we are. Nobody is perfect and we all have failures and it's okay. It's about making a change ( no matter how small ) one day at a time. It's about finding a purpose in life, being the best version of ourselves and enjoying ourselves.
As a company we are in that process. There is a super strong trend of producing conscious and self-sustaining fashion in the world and it is time to make another change of consciousness. Fashion is one of the biggest polluters in the world. At Livanna Be the Change we know this and so we offer pieces that can be used from generation to generation due to their durability and excellent quality.
The brand is constantly evolving! This is what change is all about. So, expansion and growth plans are coming up for the brand; we want to change the chip of as many as we can! I want to share all the workshops and courses I have taken and which have changed my life. The more information we can share, the better!
The pieces are for sale directly in our store in Monte Athos 125F in Lomas de Chapultepec, on our website livanna.com which delivers anywhere in the world and through our social networks: @livanna_be_the_change
