New York, NY, September 26, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Zemis, which specializes in selling unique world products as gift ideas for every occasion, brings you its extensive line up of earth friendly accessories at its Organic/Green Department Store.
Lindy Castillo, Managing Director of Zemis enthuses, “Our extensive range of eco-ethical but chic lifestyle accessories will significantly strengthen Zemis’ product core attributes of world culture and going green. In this economic downturn, individuals and businesses alike are rethinking how they should conduct themselves going forward…that people should learn to live with less – less waste, less processing, less technology.” Zemis aims to address this ‘back to nature, back to basics’ consciousness by offering organic and earth friendly items for children and the home such as a bamboo color puzzle or play tea set made from recycled plastic and recycled glassware from Italy.
Opulent and elegantly designed fashion accessories are also included in the eco-ethical line up. Castillo continues, “A lot of these products were made by craftsmen and small entities which belong to the old economy, so to speak. They are far removed from the global financial market economy that continues to be in turmoil. We want to encourage these ‘little makers’ who truly add concrete value to the economy in the most fundamental way. ”
For its Autumn/Winter 2009 collection, Zemis is showcasing four unique themes of eco-chic designer accessories representing the latest trends for the season. The first is ASEAN Agenda which features eco-friendly materials in artfully crafted bangle and bag designs from the Southeast Asian region. Second is the Sweet Safari series which echoes African safari expedition style of fashion but made from ‘sweet’ natural components such as coconut shells and oyster [link to world is an oyster metal cuff] shells and other natural stones. As a bit of departure from the first two, Zemis is also launching its rocker chic collection called ‘I Goth You’ which embodies gothic but elegant fashion style made largely from the same natural shells and stones used in ASEAN Agenda and Sweet Safari series but this time, whimsically but sophisticatedly blended with metal and resin. Femme Frivolity is the fourth theme that completes Zemis’ Fall 2009 collection. Femme Frivolity is all about exquisite hand sewn and handmade necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Each piece is a pretty work of art.
The entire Fall/Winter 2009 accessories collection is handmade and primarily composed of indigenous, natural and eco-sustainable materials. Almost all of the products are Go Green Certified. Zemis is donating a portion of the sales proceeds to the Go Green Philippines Foundation, the main goal of which is to achieve sustainability of the natural materials used in the products sold. Zemis aims to showcase fashion forward handbags, costume jewelry and other designer accessories using eco-ethical standards. Zemis officially launched its Fall/Winter 2009 fashion collection earlier this month.
