Designers, co-founders and Nashville natives - Jeremy and Susannah - met while building a house in Haiti during college. Their paralleled interests in serving others, travel and nonconformity would lead them to venture all over Southeast Asia. The idea for a sustainable product that could benefit the community, consumers and the artisans alike had been cultivated ever since Susannah returned from Southeast Asia in 2012. Fast forward to Cambodia, 2016. Welcome to our brand, CEMENT6.
Our mission is simple: To break the chain of fast fashion by creating a sustainable, quality product - coupled with the desire to serve our local and international communities.
Today's fashion industry relies heavily on mass production, large corporations and retailers selling products at low prices. Unfortunately this over consumption comes with a hidden price tag - where the environment and workers in the supply chain are the ones who pay. At CEMENT6, we work directly with artisans in Cambodia to design and create your one of a kind product. We do not believe in speed, mass production or low wages.
CEMENT6 also stands as a business that serves. The GIVE6 concept represents the six different philanthropic, sustainable and economic impacts we aim to have within the villages where the product is created as well as our local communities. We hope you love our products and their stories, as much as we do.
Please let us know what you think! We welcome all ideas, comments, encouragement and criticism alike. We are excited about the opportunity to serve you as we continue trying to be a positive influence in the industry.
Jeremy and Susannah
