Mythology Local Eco Boutique - San Diego

I have been touring the local shops that sell my products and a few weeks ago I had a chance to visit Mythology in the South Park Area of San Digeo, home to an eclectic mix of shops, galleries and eateries. Mythology is owned by artist and designer Rickard Frederick who is known for his designer VEGAN belts, organic clothing and T-shirt designs.
 "All of our clothing is made of only organic and/or recycled materials like organic cotton, bamboo, soy composite or hemp.  You’re guaranteed to find these fabrics super soft, yet extremely durable.  We also try to buy from local artists and designers as much as possible.  This not only cuts down on the amount of gasoline spent shipping merchandise around the world, but keeps our selection of merchandise extremely unique."
 Richard's Vegan Cuffs
Mythology carries Naiad Soap Arts Natural Lip Balms, Soaps and Liquid Soaps as well as eco-friendly clothing for children and adults, jewelry, accessories, graphic tees, candles and Richard's signature Vegan belts and cuffs. The store has a friendly vibe and unique selections!
Eco friendly clothing for men and women
While I was taking pictures one of Richard's T-shirts stood out for me and he told me the story behind the design (below). A regular customer of his came into the store while looking through the tees and mentioned that one one of the images reminded him of images on the walls of Angkor Wat Temple in Cambodia. The customer told Richard that he had rare rubbings from the site that his Grandmother took in the 70's before the temple was closed to the public and offered to give Richard the images. The T-Shirt below is one of those images! A truly unique tee that you won't find any where else.
Angkor Wat Temple Rubbing
After talking more with the customer Richard found out that their family contributes to a college fund so that the next generation has money to go to school assuring that the new generation has a chance to reach their goals and dreams! As part of his thanks for the Angkor Wat images, Richard now contributes $1.00 to the family's college fund for every T-shirt he sells. How cool is that!

  1. Aaawhhh Erin, I wish I live somewhere closer to the USA so that I can shop your soaps in real stores rather than virtual! The store looks great!

  2.  I know it is nice to see the product in shops - you can always request my items at local boutiques near you and it might prompt a buyer to look me up! :)

  3. That would be great, but I do not believe that dutch shop owners are willing to undergo the adventure of ordering soap from the States. That would be just too adventurous for these boring people. But I promise that I will order at least once per year never mind the shipping costs. :) I love your soaps!

  4.  You never know! :) You are so sweet and I do appreciate your orders. If you want to do yearly I can try and fill our large flat rate box. The shipping is around $50 but I can try and pack it full!
