What we're really about
The three main ingredients that make up GDS.
GDS was created to provide ethical and sustainable alternatives to people who appreciate great design. We believe that understanding where our textile goods come from is as important as understanding the route of food from farm to table. By making products and facilitating workshops at the intersection of design, sustainability and function, it's our mission to connect and heal our communities–connecting people to the goods they need and healing through a culture of intentional living.
This is our journey.
We hope you'll take part.
Hi, I'm Geana Sieburger. I grew up in Southern Brazil, a place where, in the 80’s, bread was bought at bakeries and produce from farmers, carried-in by horse-drawn carriages. Urban gardens weren’t aspirational, just a way people saved money. And, in the middle of a city, I woke up by rooster-call every morning. I was also a regular coffee drinker when my age was still in the single digits. It was mostly coffee-flavored milk, but none-the-less, helped form an early fondness for coffee. This was home for the first decade of my life. Many years later, it’s no surprise that when I decided to start my business of sewn goods for everyday use, it started at my local farmers’ market.
