Foundation

From service, then on to fundraising, and now clothing, we are in the business of helping people thrive.



In 2008, while on a soul searching adventure through Asia, I met an amazing man named Michael. Very simply put, he asked me to join him by serving people in need. I said yes.

The 7 months spent living in the bamboo hut behind Michael and Elizabeth’s single mothers’ shelter helped shape my understanding of service, this world, and my own life.

Serving first with my hands, a playground was built. The next summer, serving with a few other volunteers, an income generation project was created. Servitude eventually became fundraising, and after a number of years and a lot of hard work, it evolved into The Transient Design.

To instill this business with the heart of service, we pour conscious intent into everything we do... from product creation all the way to paying it forward after the sale is made. Call it community building. Call it sacred commerce. Call it whatever you would like, but to me, Michael’s invitation still remains. So it's passion forward to do our part in the task ahead.
