We had the good fortune of connecting with Eartha Hubbell and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Eartha, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Being authentic! Authenticity is so important for success, both for my brand and for my personal happiness. Staying true to who I am and being authentic in my brand comes in many different forms, including molding my brand around caring for our planet + people, being active in causes and organizations I feel passionate about, and giving back to the community. This authenticity and humanity within my brand is what makes it unique and successful.
What should our readers know about your business?
Revari is an online boutique dedicated to sustainable, fair trade, and ethically made fashion and home goods. What set’s Revari apart from other retailers is that we believe style and caring for our planet + people goes hand in hand. The clothing and accessories sold on Revari are sourced from brands all around the world with the goal of inspiring people to make a change, no matter how big or how small, to live a more Eco-friendly and socially conscious life. I started Revari with the goal to create an inclusive platform to share the stories behind artisans, garment workers, and sustainable brands so people can feel closer and more connected to who makes their clothing. There have definitely been challenges along the way, especially because while still only in my second year in business the world was facing a global pandemic! However, seeing people come together in these tough times to continue to support small businesses, like myself, that are striving to make a positive changes within the fashion industry and the world makes it all worth it.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
There are so many amazing spots in the Phoenix area, it’s hard to just pick a few! However, to start the morning off right I would go to La Bohemia, a wonderful Latinx owned coffee shop that has the best oat milk latte. Then I would head to the Local Nomad, a fellow woman owned small business that curates unique, ethically made home goods and clothing. Next, I would head to The Churchill near Roosevelt Row for some delicious food + drinks! For a day or weekend trip one of my favorite places to visit is Sedona. There are so many beautiful hikes and the fresh air and nature in the mountains is invigorating and inspiring.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate my shoutout to the Garment Worker Center. The Garment Worker Center is a worker rights organization leading an anti-sweatshop movement to improve conditions for over 46,000 garment workers in Los Angeles. They center immigrant workers, women of color, and their families who are impacted by exploitation in the fashion industry. The GWC is working towards the enforcement of strong labor laws and accountability from factory owners, manufacturers, and fashion brands. Although the GWC is based in Los Angeles, it affects every state, including us in Arizona, as Los Angeles is the largest garment manufacturing facility in the US, with garment workers making products for major retails such as Ross, Fashion Nova, and more.
