PROFILE: Dosa's Christina Kim, eco & "green"

The LA Times recently published an article about Christina Kim of dosa and her "eco-friendly" line. Personally, I have my own issues with the label / category of "green" and "eco-friendly" but save that for another day. To the author's credit, the article finds proper place to talk about Christina's philosophy of doing business and creating products -- something that, for dosa, existed long before (and surpasses) any neatly packaged marketing labels. photo (c) Jay L Clendenin / LA Times

"Christina Kim: every piece is precious"

Clothing designer Christina Kim weaves recycled materials as well as the work of artisans the world over into her eco-friendly, human-friendly Dosa fashions.

"Kim believes that supporting these artisans, and having regular contact with them in good times and bad, builds long-term, trusting relationships. It also fits within her broader philosophy of encouraging people to consume less but cherish more the things they buy and wear, including the sweat equity and consummate craftsmanship of the people who made them."
