What’s important to us are the people we sell to and the people that help make our products and fabric. Our business model is to be responsible and respectful to people, animals and the EARTH. This is why we promote fair wages, sustainability, healthy living and a celebration of diversity.
Alexia Sobrado founded BoBo GloBal in 2014 in a quest for creative freedom and exploring alternatives to fast fashion. She spent many years in fashion doing archival vintage clothing and accessories. A trip to South East Asia and the clothing factories there from Western brands opened her eyes to the inequality of social and labor standards in the textile and garment sector. She decided to create a brand that would align with a paradigm shift in fashion and promote authenticity, fair trade, sustainability and the old traditions in clothes making i.e: weaving, embroidery, knit, block printing etc.. Some important pillars in this change that BoBo GloBal believes:
- Supporting fair wages/fair trade in fashion
- Buying vintage & second hand
- Transparency of fashion brands; where, how and who is making these clothes
- Mending already owned fashion
- Buying well made authentic fashion
- Promoting ethical brands and sustainable textiles
- Sustaining from big corporate giants that enable fast fashion and cultural appropriation
Felicia Lieto, a BoBo GloBal co-designer & partner, is experienced in fashion retail & design. She and Alexia met in New York City and established a shared passion for ethical fashion. They also both love to travel, have deep respect for other cultures and the same admiration for iconic powerful women such as Frida Kahlo, Nina Simone and Angela Davis. They want to help support creative and alternative healthy lifestyles that are all about being informed and being positive to the EARTH. BoBo GloBal will be a leading brand in ethical fashion and the beginning of their work to enrich people's lives with an enlightened taste of the world through clothing.
