Tejo Threads Weaves

Tejo Threads – Our Happy Company for August

We are all threads weaved together.  Some were weaved loose to each other, some were tight enough it causes friction, and some were weaved just right. Now that’s my story. In Tejo Threads, every bracelet you wear tells a different story and that compelled me to support the brand. A thin weave of studded threads caught my attention of all the local products that AVA offers. Tejo surely gets our Happy Culture Good Company approval!

This is more than just a bracelet. Tejo creates hand woven pieces, made with love by underprivileged Filipino women. We help by giving them livelihood and a fair income. At Tejo, we want to weave not only bracelets, but beautiful stories too.

So last month, I purchased few Tejo threads online and wore it ever since. Tejo threads became my personal statement. It was such a delight to post photos of me wearing it on Instagram because they deserve to be out there. Not too long when Tejo noticed my posts and liked it. As a consumer it really meant a lot! After a week, a pack arrived to me and it was a gift from Tejo!

Here what the note says:

“Hello Jade, We absolutely loved your posts! Thank you for supporting our livelihood program. Know that everytime you wear our pieces, you empower Filipino women with livelihood and fair income. We hope you like these additions to your arm party! Thank you for weaving with us!❤ Gabs.”

That melts my heart. I’ve never received any handwritten notes from any brand I purchased from before. It feels great to help others in our own little way. Thank you, @tejothreads

How An Open-Plan Office Hurts Your Company’s Productivity

Working at an open-plan office has many benefits, and it’s perceived as cool for startups. But they are not as great as they claim to be when it comes to keeping your employees productive.
