Tees that Educate, Empower, and Entice!

White Sugar, Brown Sugar would like to welcome one of our new partners, New Tribe New Traditions, and it's customers to the blog!

I discovered this fabulous t-shirt company while browsing Etsy, and I'm in love with the products!  How many times have you had to tell strangers to quit touching your child's hair?

Or you want to celebrate all shades?  (This is particularly meaningful to me, as each of my three kids is a different shade of brown----and all their shades are beautiful!)

There are so many fabulous designs to choose from.  And don't worry, mamas!  There are tees in your size, too!
Dawn Kimble is the owner and creator of New Tribe New Traditions.   She shares:  

 I am a married mother of three who prides herself on being a renaissance woman. I am a t-shirt designer, a painter, quilter, seamstress, organic gardener and a self-proclaimed foodie. I was a stay at home mom for 7 years and during that time I smocked little girls dresses, made quilts and carpooled.

I have more than 16 years of experience in child development and education, and more than 7 years of experience in nonprofit administration. I have a BLS in education and psychology, a MS in Leadership and Adult Education and a Certificate in Philanthropy and Nonprofit Administration. I am really passionate about community outreach and women’s rights. I am highly invested in supporting my community through volunteerism, service learning activities, and arts education.

I started my Etsy shop two years ago as a way to express myself and earn money. I was pleasantly surprised that this little shop has turned into so much more.

I have worn my hair in its natural state for almost 18 years and I was pleasantly surprised when the natural hair movement took root. Seeing the creativity and passion of women around the world embracing their natural beauty really inspired me to fall in love with myself all over again. I had an “aha” moment where I finally understood how I could connect my love of art with my love for community outreach. The natural hair movement became the perfect way for me start a business in a difficult economy, indulge in my love of art daily and also reconnect with the young girls that I volunteer with and mentor.

I believe that when girls (especially Brown Girls) embrace themselves, their self-esteem and life potential is elevated! I Embrace and support kinky, curly, and coily hair, I create original t-shirts that reinforce the idea of its beauty and uniqueness. And I hope that I provide a small self-esteem boost for girls who may question their beauty. This is one of my passions so I regularly donate items to underprivileged girls and collaborate with organizations in my community.
