Today, I bring you a giveaway from SouleMama Sponsor, Satch & Sol. In Susan's words:
"For the love of family and earth, Satch & Sol partners with fair trade artisan cooperatives in Mongolia and strives to be eco-friendly through product selection and business practices. We celebrate the artist for the unique quality each brings to the collection. The handmade felted wool collection is steeped in several thousand years of tradition and the Mongolian passion for color."
"Visit us on facebook for additional information and savings."
SouleMama: How long have you been in business?
Susan: Mom-owned and operated in Seattle, Washington since August 2008.
SouleMama: Tell us what you envision and dream for the future of your business.
Susan: Satch & Sol is a small family business that grows a bit each year. Every time we work with the Mongolian artists to create new designs and build the Satch & Sol collection, we positively effect the lives of the artists, their families, and their communities. I hope to continue growing our artist base to make a bigger impact.
SouleMama: What inspired you to start your business?
Susan : My father-in-law was working on a long-term project in Mongolia when my oldest son was born. He and my mother-in-law sent beautiful felted wool slippers for Solomon. I was so impressed by the craftsmanship. Solomon wore the slippers often as a toddler. And, then Satchel (17 months younger) wore them, too. I decided to find the artist so that I could order more slippers for gifts. After months of searching, i finally had my first phone call with an interpreter and the artist. The artist's story of entrepreneurship, struggle, and fair trade was inspirational. I knew instantly that I wanted to launch a business to support the artists of Mongolia.
Susan: In October 2008, SouleMama posted information about the Satch & Sol collection. I'd only been online for about a month! Many of the people who purchased that week continue to purchase. I literally recognize customers names and feel wonderful that they have returned. I enjoy hearing from customers and appreciate feedback of all kinds. Satch & Sol offers both retail and wholesale, as well as group buying rates for organizations, for example Waldorf schools.

~ 1st winner: One pair of children's slippers (sizes 3 baby/EU 18 - 3 youth/EU 34) from the available Satch & Sol slipper collection
