Seaworthy is handmade collection with a focus on craftsmanship and community. #accessorizewithintention
We have been in business for seven years and Spring '17 will be our 13th collection. The Seaworthy staff is currently four women, wearing a variety of hats and working their butts off on the daily.
The fives items listed below are our operating principles and the baseline from which we do business.
We approach our work with integrity. We honor and respect our art and that of our peers. We approach our interactions internally and externally in a way that values each individual.
We manufacture quality, lifetime products in an environment that nurtures quality of life. We partner with companies that share this philosophy.
Sustainable manufacturing practices are at the forefront of our business. We work in a way that honors the processes we've created while allowing us to be open to opportunity and improvement.
We are building and nurturing a thriving community of employees, customers, vendors and neighbors. We are accountable to our community through our practices.
We stay open to opportunity and growth, for this business as a whole and for each individual within the business. We strive to minimize our impact on the planet while impacting our community in a positive way.
We donate 1% of our retail sales to causes that we believe in. We have an ongoing monthly donation going to the Oregon Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. In addition, we have raised funds for families in our community that are facing medical expenses or hardships outside of their means.
