Hi, I'm Sara!
If you are new around these parts, let me first say welcome! I am so happy you are here. Secondly, you may be wondering who exactly is Terra Shepherd. Terra Shepherd is actually not a person - it is a business name, a place, a way of thinking, and a community.
It is my goal to connect you with your clothing on a deeper level than you likely ever have by telling the stories of the makers, fabrics, production practices, and brands I have selected to carry in the store. I hope to help you realize the incredible value of investing in garments you truly love and are excited to cherish for years to come.
This space is intended to be one in which we learn and grow together. I welcome and encourage your feedback - it will serve as my guide with this journal.
Welcome to Terra Shepherd friends.
Look for plastic free, Fair Trade certified, chemical free, Organic, and high quality items. While all of these qualities are still important, sustainable gift giving is also largely dependent on shifting the mindset around how we give.
The good news is that Ayurveda also provides us with seasonal practices that help balance the effects of the changing seasons on our bodies. Ayurveda shows us that making small adjustments to our food and daily routines enables us to harmonize our bodies with nature's ebbs and flows to prevent illness and imbalance.
I hope this inspires you to begin asking yourself not only WHY but HOW certain goods cost so little. I can assure you that even when an article of clothing is inexpensive to purchase there is most definitely still a cost involved. It’s our responsibility to consider the human and environmental cost of fast fashion and decide if we are willing to accept that price.
