Our Mission, Vision, and Core Values
A Social Enterprise: Cosmic Bobbins, a lifestyle brand fashioned at the crossroads of business and social good, works to create jobs in underserved populations through arts-based entrepreneurship, sewing education and outreach.
Cosmic Bobbins has pioneered social enterprise through collaborative work with artisan communities locally and internationally since 2002. The brick and mortar shop features handmade works of over 65 local artist entrepreneurs, fair trade and direct trade goods. Cosmic Bobbins also offers custom sewing, screen printing, and embroidery. In an effort to better serve the mission, the Cosmic Bobbins Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit was established in November of 2015. Work through the foundation impacts the lives of local underrepresented participants including youth, refugee, and immigrant populations.
Vision: We are committed to creating a global community where sustainability, upcycling and social good become a lifestyle, where people are meaningfully employed and our core essence is a spirit of hope.
