Special Giveaway: W.O.M.B. Lifestyle!

 Congrats to our winner of last week's Giveaway from 
Art Again by Michelle! We are excited to announce it was Sharon from 

Thank you, Michelle, for supporting Upcyclers and to all of you for entering! 

And now we'd like to introduce you to Dion and Eli~ the creators of WOMB Lifestyle and the sponsors of this special Giveaway!

The story of the Birth of WOMB uniquely intertwines entrepreneurship, art, and self-empowerment. As individuals, Dion and Eli each already had a passion for art, health, and education. Dion had already been active as an art teacher, and visual artist creating graphic illustrations that depicted messages of confidence and personal development. Eli had already been involved as a mentor in her community and has been creating works of fine art for years. When the two of them were married in 2009, it only made sense for these individual characteristics to accentuate.

Naturally, Dion and Eli put their minds together as a married couple to create business ideas that would utilize their passions and enrich their community. They made sure to recycle and reuse the backsides of paper to save trees during their brainstorming sessions. That is how Wisdom of Mind and Body (WOMB) was born in the Spring of 2010. Dion and Eli combined their artistic talents to create tee shirts that raised the bar of social responsibility boasting unique designs, inspiring messages, organic cotton, PVC free inks and sweatshop free labor.

WOMB Apparel represents their personal lifestyle philosophy Wisdom Of Mind and Body. Dion and Eli created WOMB’s unique philosophy of self-empowerment by emphasizing your power to recreate and commence a personal rebirth. With only one design (Human Race), they printed a small batch of shirts and took it to the International Hip Hop Festival to test the market. Before they knew it, Hip Hop artists from all over the world were wearing their design during performances. Dion and Eli knew they had a great idea to run with. In the next string of months, WOMB Apparel continued to create ways to provide customers with a valuable product that empowers their lives, the community, and the world.

WOMB Apparel is in the process of expanding into WOMB Lifestyle in order to incorporate the educational components that are integral in the Wisdom of Mind and Body philosophy. In celebration of their expansion they are teaming up with Upcyclers to give one lucky guy and girl an opportunity to win one of our most popular t-shirt designs – Human Race or Wisdom of Mind and Body.
