Trunk Show Reminder & Where to Donate
Just a reminder: HIMANE's collection of upcycled bags and doggie clothes will be on display at Equinox Fitness Club (the @14 Wall Street location in Downtown Manhattan) on Tuesday, November 17, from 5-8:30 PM. Those who attend the trunk show next week will not be disappointed! Our eco-friendly bags and doggie clothes are always made from recycled umbrellas and other materials, and many can be easily zipped and folded for easy storage. Founder, president, and designer Catherine Charlot will be there to answer all of your questions about HIMANE, and will demonstrate how easy it is to use the upcycled pieces on-the-go. We hope to see you there!
If you live in or near New York City, and have old umbrellas that you want to get rid of, consider donating them to HIMANE! We have three convenient drop-off locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan, so please don't hesitate to stop by!
Sustainable NYC (Avenue A in Manhattan)
Artez'n (Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn)
The Green Spa & Wellness Center (Bay Ridge, Brooklyn)
If you leave your name and contact information with your donations, we will contact you with more information about discounts and other information about HIMANE products.
Have a great day!
