We also wanted to take this opportunity to share some important 'behind the scenes' changes going on at Mountains of the Moon.  It would be impossible to put into words how grateful we are for the support of our customers (that's you!) over the last 12 years.  What started out as a hand-me-down sewing machine set up on a cardboard box in Melissa's apartment grew into a successful company with sustainable apparel collections shown at prominent fashion weeks, designs carried worldwide, and recognition from major fashion and green living publications.

If you're a regular visitor to our website or Facebook page, you may have noticed that things have slowed down quite a bit around here in 2012.  We haven't been adding new designs to our line or updating our website as often as in the past.  We've even been sending these newsletters out less frequently. 

We really do consider you guys to be our friends, so we decided to be completely open with you about why we've been less active. Over the past year, sales have slowed down greatly for us.  There are a few reasons for this.  Many of the boutiques that carried our collections for years have closed due to a poor economy.  And sadly, consumers' interest in purchasing in eco-friendly products has declined.  Producing eco-conscious clothing collections is a very expensive and time-consuming endeavor, and recently, we've struggled to remain afloat.  We've also struggled with how to justify to ourselves continuing to put intense hours and investments into a company that not only no longer produces a profit, but that actually costs us to keep open every single month.

On a positive note, as some of you know, a little over a year ago we started another business, a lifestyle blog called Bubby and Bean: Living Creatively.  Like Mountains of the Moon, Bubby and Bean began as a tiny side project, and has blossomed over time.  We are very grateful for the amazing reception it has received, and even more grateful that it has allowed us to continue to put effort into Mountains of the Moon.  If it wasn't for this project, Mountains of the Moon would likely no longer be in business.

All this said, we hope you can continue to be patient over the next couple of months as we restructure Mountains of the Moon and work on changes that will hopefully allow it to start to blossom once again. We will do our best to keep you guys updated, and we remain hopeful that the future will bring good things for our little eco-fashion and art line.  And again, we appreciate your support more than we can say.  If it wasn't for you, Mountains of the Moon would have never gotten past its hand-me-down sewing machine set up on a cardboard box period.  And that's the truth.

One final note: We know that many of you are fans of certain designs we've carried for a while and that many of you have been repeat customers of these designs.  Because we can't say for sure at this time which of our styles will be produced again, we encourage you to check our website for availability on any styles that you feel you can't live without. :)
