Founder and creator Emily Curtis has worked for the last 7 years in various fields of craft as well as meditation. They seem to coincide with one another and have evolved with her.
"The Essence of Sume is water. We are such watery creatures we often forget our essence & what it carries ~Mainly emotions~ All of us are in constant motion. We have to take time and space to balance ourselves. Through our energy & intention we can balance and harmonize our bodies.
My work aims to be an aid in this~
All my materials are ethical and sustainable, handmade or re-purposed. My materials consist of found objects & ancient beads or stones. I had the great privledge to work with ancient peoples in South East Asia, it taught me a great deal about fiber, metals & how these connect our bodies to our spirits. The textiles of the Hmong people were among the main inspirations for this work. The Hmong people are Matriarchal, my partners are such incredible strong women. Female energy is important for balance in a society driven by the masculine. I wish to take these teachings & create work for our modern life which is in desperate need of harmony. I am also curating vintage goods that have these same qualities & will be adding some brands I feel represent this Ethos."
