SHIFT

CLOTHING FOR A CAUSE

Make the Shift to a new style and

Feel Good

Made from sustainable, organic, natural dye, free-trade fabrics.

SHIFT is not a conventional business.

Lesley B Fay in partnership with Khadi Oaxaca, has created a line of clothing called SHIFT. Shift style dresses, denim jean style unisex jackets and men’s shirts. These clothing items are comfortable and attractive in their simplicity. Shift is also a shift of thinking, purchasing garments with a purpose instead of mass-produced garments that harm our environment and people.

The people of Khadi Oaxaca grow the cotton, spin the cotton into thread with wheels built by local carpenters and then they weave the thread into fabric. The fabric is dyed with ingredients such as madder roots, indigo from the Oaxaca, oak bark, native huizache, cochineal and wild marigold. The tailors of San Miguel sew the items, for a fair wage in their own homes.

Our SHIFT profit goes back into the business, to the workers and to help Animal Rescue in San Miguel de Allende. Our goal is that the animal rescue people that work on the front lines can receive the monies they need to keep up their work

Sale of these garments benefit a cause…

All SHIFT clothing is fair trade labor with 100% organic handwoven khadi cotton and naturally dyed. Each item sold has a percentage of the sale going towards animal rescue in San Miguel de Allende for cats and dogs, the Audubon Society and Save the Bees.

Whether you want to support the birds, the bees, or dogs & cats we will donate part of the proceeds to an organization whose mission is to help, rescue and protect these vital members of our world.

The perfect outfit for Your Lifestyle

A True Classic

All SHIFT items are timeless styling, beautifully sewn and have big pockets so you can carry most anything.
The dresses come in two sleeve styles, cap sleeve and ¾ raglan sleeve.
Dress Sizes are Small 8 to 10, Medium 12 to 14, Large 16 plus.
They fit casually and are super comfortable.
Men’s Shirts Sizes come in Medium, Large & Extra Large.
The shirts have either coconut shell or resin buttons.

If your size is different, we can do custom SHIFT clothing but there is an increase in price depending on what custom work is needed.

I hope you love SHIFT as much as we do and are eager to make a shift to help us, help the cats and dogs, birds, and bees.

Mill Gracias.

How to care for SHIFT clothing.

Wash on a cool, delicate cycle using an eco-laundry soap. If you have a stain, just rub in a little dish soap, and let set about 3 minutes. If the stain is difficult like blood, red wine, mustard or oil; rub in a little dish soap and add some oxyclean powder. Gently rub it into the stain and let set 3 minutes. Wash as directed.

Dry on low heat on delicate cycle. Take out while still slightly damp and put on a hanger. If needed, a quick iron for any wrinkles.

 

A portion of our proceeds benefit

Our Furry & Winged Friends

Save the Bees

Bees are the perfect pollinator. It is critical that we recognise the importance of bees in nature and to human lives. We need to actively work to ensure they don’t just survive but thrive. Click below for other easy ways to help in your own back yard.

Adopt a Dog

Man’s best friend should not be neglected on the streets to have more puppies. We are a strong supporter of SPAY and Neuter San Miguel has its fair share of abandoned dogs and you can help. There are several organizations in town that work diligently to SPAY & Neuter for free.

Rescue a Cat

Cats need rescuing and care BUT MOST IMPORTANT is Spay & Neuter. The only way we can remove the cat populations is to reduce the kitten factor. The only way to do that is through the SPAY & NEUTER offered by many rescue programs here in San Miguel. They need our help.

Listen to Birds

Birds strongly influence the biological function of the ecosystems upon which we all depend, yet more than one-third of our birds are in trouble due to habitat loss, pesticide use, and other troubling human impacts.
