Blake Lively's Preserve Internet Business Embraces Artisans

You are forgiven of you don’t think of former ‘Gossip Girl’ Blake Lively and Martha Stewart as being fast friends. But they are such good friends that Martha stepped in at the 11th hour to make Blake’s wedding to actor Ryan Reynolds a southern success.

Lively is profiled in the August issue of Vogue, lensed in a western-inspired fashion editorial by Mario Testino. GlamTribale’s focus is Lively’s new website Preserve, dedicated to celebrating small quantity, artisan made products. Preserve is part digital magazine, part e-commerce venture, part video blog with an inventory including food, clothes, pillows, dishes, dining-room tables, jewelry and other designs that evoke “a kind of moody-spooky beauty that one associates with Savannah or New Orleans (a favorite place of Lively and Reynolds’s).

Heading over to the Preserve website, the talk is sincere and a bit surprising for a Gossip Girl. Preserve commits 5% of revenues to the Greater Good.

We celebrate and indulge in the treasures both high and low that we feature on Preserve. We are aware that a lot of what we are selling is outlandish in a world where people are starving and have nowhere to sleep. This is a real problem. One that eve  on our high horse we can’t ignore. This is our community. Each of ours.

We have set our first goal of giving 5,000 children a meal, 2000 children a blanket, and 2,700 children a warm hoodie, all within the U.S.

We’re a small, but growing company. Our giving reflects our age. As we mature so will our contribution both fiscally and physically.

We acknowledge that we are human and are flawed. But please accept our intention is to do something pure. So we ask you, let this be a conversation. Help us grow. Help us gove. Please critique us, teach us and be patient with us in the process, as ultimately we are all in this, this spinning sphere, together.

Previously on Engage, we decried the persecution of women guilty of the crime of reading books and asking questions. Continuing on that thread today, we emphasize the fact that education is our true treasure. Unlike gold, education cannot be stolen from you. And without it, without learning, without curiosity, no improvement is possible.

The education of women is a particularly essential investment, because it brings about better health, more peace, and greater prosperity for everyone. Below are GlamTribale jewellery pieces visualized with luminous words that highlight the importance of education. GlamTribale’s story is inextricably linked with our mission to support the education of girls around the world.

GlamTribale Tastes The Tree Of Knowledge

Greetings, goddess! Feanne here, inviting you to partake of the Tree Of Knowledge. You’re tuned in to the Engage newsletter from AnneOfCarversville and GlamTribale.

Sign up for Engage and we’ll email you a weekly dispatch filled with visuals and writings of the sensual, creative, and feminine. You’ll also receive exclusive GlamTribale goddess jewelry discounts and special news.

GlamTribale is now at WWW.GLAMTRIBALE.ORG— please update your bookmarks. Anne is working hard to fix the technical issues last week with the GlamTribale website, when the glamtribale.com domain expired with no warning. Anne’s business partner did not keep organized records of the domain registration, and so we weren’t able to anticipate the domain troubles. Anne writes: “This is a life lesson for every woman: have complete lists of everything that matters. If you must tie down your spouse or partner to get all the necessary information— do it! And put the info in a safe place, ideally more than one copy.”

New Gaia goddess themed GlamTribale jewelry pieces will be at the Italian Festival this weekend May 17 and 18 at South 9th Street Italian Market Festival Philadelphia, and also at PHAIR Open Air/Artisan Market on May 22 to 24 at The Oval at Philadelphia Art Museum.

Continuing from our Garden Of Eve theme last week, today we partake of the Tree Of Knowledge.

Like the mythical Eve who, in the patriarchal narrative, was unfairly punished for eating the fruit of the Tree Of Knowledge, girls and women today are persecuted for daring to seek education. Curiosity and learning beget questions, challenging and upsetting oppressive ruling systems that can only remain in power by maintaining mass ignorance and apathy. Education is thus branded as a heretical and subversive danger, one that must be nipped in the bud. The gatekeepers of the status quo well know: Wherever education is allowed to take root and grow, it runs the risk of blossoming into a full-fledged societal paradigm shift.

The recent horrific kidnapping of over 250 Nigerian schoolgirls by the religious terrorist group Boko Haram is only the latest in a long history of extremist attacks against women. Nicholas Kristof explains why in What’s So Scary About Smart Girls?:

“When terrorists in Nigeria organized a secret attack last month, they didn’t target an army barracks, a police department or a drone base. No, Boko Haram militants attacked what is even scarier to a fanatic: a girls’ school. That’s what extremists do. They target educated girls, their worst nightmare. That’s why the Pakistani Taliban shot Malala Yousafzai in the head at age 15. That’s why the Afghan Taliban throws acid on the faces of girls who dare to seek an education. Why are fanatics so terrified of girls’ education? Because there’s no force more powerful to transform a society. The greatest threat to extremism isn’t drones firing missiles, but girls reading books. In that sense, Boko Haram was behaving perfectly rationally — albeit barbarically — when it kidnapped some of the brightest, most ambitious girls in the region and announced plans to sell them as slaves. If you want to mire a nation in backwardness, manacle your daughters.”
- Nicholas Kristof

GlamTribale’s commitment to women and girls worldwide reached back to 2007. We wholeheartedly agree that educating women is the key to unlocking peace and prosperity for communities all over the world. As Kristof explains, investing in women results in exponential societal rewards:

“Educated women have fewer children and many want careers outside the home. For the likes of Boko Haram, once a woman is educated, she is lost, because she cannot be made uneducated and thus totally controlled. Theocracies repress women. The aim of every theocracy or theocracy-in-waiting, such those under the influence of the Taliban and al Qaeda, is to exert outright control over women. Even if women are allowed some education in a few theocracies, they are denied the opportunity to work outside the home. The antidote for Boko Haram’s poison is more education for girls. While America’s hard power can contain religious terrorism in the short term, to win the battle in the long term, America needs to use its soft power and invest heavily in girls’ education and women’s empowerment worldwide. Studies have shown that once women took a few steps away from poverty, their first investment was in their children’s education, followed by healthcare. Women turned out to be far more astute investors than men.”
- Nicholas Kristof

In Fight religious terrorists like Nigeria’s Boko Haram by educating girls, Fakhruddin Ahmed further discusses the rationale and mechanism by which extremists oppress women, and how educating women helps dismantle that dysfunctional system:

Anne has written about Eve, Lilith, and the Garden Of Eden— that creation narrative so deeply rooted in age-old oppressive patriarchal systems. Eve and her wild companion, the snake, have been maligned throughout history, serving as the scapegoats for any and all misfortunes. Because of their inherent mystery and allurement, they are feared as the “other”, the frightful “unknown”, the dangerous “wild”, the obscure “dark”. They are wrongly branded as evil, only because they are different and unfamiliar. They symbolize all women, who continue today to be subject to various forms and degrees of persecution all over the world. We seek to reclaim this creation narrative and restore Eve— and every single woman— to her rightful place of dignity as a free and equal human being.

We’re looking forward to breathing cleaner air soon, as a few days ago the US Supreme Court upheld the Environmental Protection Agency’s move to limit pollution from about 1,000 coal plants from 28 Midwestern and Appalachian states. Perfect timing for GlamTribale’s new coasters celebrating butterflies! Our lovely winged friends are very sensitive to air pollution, and their presence indicates relatively clean air in the surrounding environment. Our butterfly coasters are alighting at The Woodlands in Philadelphia this Saturday, before flying to the Hoboken Spring Art & Music Festival Sunday.

While GlamTribale unveils the new butterfly-inspired collection, monarch butterflies are arriving in the US after a long migration from Mexico. The first week of May marks the beginning of a surge of monarch butterfly sightings in states such as Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, and even Virginia. You can help these beautiful creatures by planting native milkweed and nectar-providing flowers, avoiding pesticides, and reporting your observations to aid scientists.
