FROM OUR ARTIST + ACTIVIST COLLECTION

“give yourself latitude 

 

We love a good double entendre and the word ‘Latitude’ was chosen because it reflects various points on a map and means freedom from restriction.The word expresses our love for travel, staying curious, and engaging with the world around us, as well as our desire to give back along the way, helping to free people from their restrictions, whatever they might be.

The Latitude Project empowers local leaders to build community projects in education, health, sanitation and women’s empowerment throughout Latin America. Founded by sisters, Alanna and Jennifer Tynan, this passion project has grown into an international organization fueling human potential around the world.“We ask more questions than we. We don’t believe that we are the experts and because of that, each local project is as diverse, creative and innovative as the people we work with.”

These projects have given us the latitude to explore the world around us, stay curious, and give back along the way. Through it all, we’ve learned that one of the deepest and most reciprocal forms of self care is to truly care about and love other people and other things, outside of ourselves. How do you give yourself latitude?

 

Limited edition pieces are engraved with hopeful messages that envision and inspire action toward a universally intersectional, just and peaceful future. Like a bumper sticker or protest poster, each piece is a personal reminder of how we can unite around our shared beliefs to make positive impact.

History is now.
