Suzi Fuller, graduate of Texas A&M University, and Blair Isom, graduate of Kansas University, met in Dallas, where both currently reside. Both mothers of three, the two bonded while on the nine month journey of earning their Yoga Teacher Certifications. A friendship was formed through their mutual love of yoga, motherhood, fashion, and ....... a little tequila!
Searching for a way to amp up the activewear they so frequently found themselves donning, ultimately they stumbled upon the traditional footwear of Morocco, and fell in love. Friends began to take note of their unusual shoes, and began asking where they too could pick some up. Suzi and Blair connected with artisans in Fez who began making mules for them in the leathers of their choice, and the rest is history. Blair and Suzi had succeeded in their search for footwear that could take them from the yoga mat to lunch with friends, and their goal was accomplished not with a new innovative product, but with something timeless, rooted in tradition, a product that has been around for thousands of years. This concept of tradition meets modern became their inspiration, and spoke to their souls.
Suzi and Blair founded MODERNSOUL with the intention of celebrating, fostering, and preserving tradition in a modern world. Their curated, fair-trade goods are authentically made by local artisans from around the world including Morocco, India, and Greece. Each product is crafted using time-honored techniques passed down through generations, making every item uniquely special.
NOTE FROM THE FOUNDERS:
We had to share our love of these beautiful, timeless treasures and hope that you will be as smitten as we are!
Suzi and Blair
