HUGE EXCITING NEWS

logo (1)

We have been keeping quiet lately, busy working away on top secret projects that can finally be revealed! Maybe you’ve already noticed some changes if you’ve stopped by the main website lately. The logo has been tweaked just slightly because Fellow Threads is now called The Fellow Company. The name change came about mostly out of necessity; excitedly, our little business is growing and we needed an encompassing name rather than a name that indicates just one type of product. Our clothing, or our “Threads” as our customers know them by, is now its very own department within The Fellow Company.

Wait! There’s more! In addition to the name change, we have added a second department to The Fellow Company. In November of this year, we will have the pleasure of launching a line of all-natural bath and beauty products we have decided to name Fellow Organics. Without giving too much away, we can confidently say that the things we’ve been experimenting with over the recent months are everything you want and need in your daily regimen.

November must be our month because you know that insanely popular event that takes place twice a year… it’s where fans and creators of online videos come together… mainly YouTube… you know, Playlist Live? Well, we’re picking out our outfits now because The Fellow Company is headed to Playlist Tri-State. We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this amazing event, but that’s all we’re going to say about that for now! More information in the coming weeks, including brand new designs! It’s safe to say things are going to get crazy around here, and we happily welcome the chaos because it means we have an even greater opportunity to connect with you guys.

 

If you’ve been a long-time customer of ours, we love and appreciate your continued support. You know exactly who you are, and we are always grateful. If you’re brand new to The Fellow Company family, then welcome. You’re in for exciting times.

Inspiration of the Day

Because who doesn’t need some Monday inspiration? It’s not always so easy to bounce back into a blah work week routine, so we’re here to help you feel maybe just a little bit more empowered and inspired to change things up a bit. Over the weekend, movie star and all-around goddess Angelina Jolie received an Oscar at the 2013 Governor’s Ball for her amazing international humanitarian work… and in this particular case, work means work. She doesn’t just donate a portion of her millions to random charities and call it a day, she’s on the ground in foreign countries, making speeches in political forums, physically working at making our world a better place. It’s so easy to look at today’s reality and feel disheartened and defeated, and this coming from a twenty-something says a lot about the general state of things. But when we look at people like Jolie who does the best she “can with this life to be of use,” it’s possible to see that we can make a difference, no matter how small we think our contribution. Grab some tissues, she’s amazing.

Speaking of making a difference, our very own founder, Lauren, is heading back to Kenya in February 2014! You can follow along with her adventures at laureninkenya.com and see firsthand how the actions of one person can create positive change. And don’t forget! A portion of every single piece sold in our store goes straight to organizations making an impact in the most in-need African countries.
