Shop with a purpose this holiday season! Simbi, a female-founded, Haitian-based fashion accessory brand with the mission of improving lives one accessory at a time, is pleased to announce its new “Hippie Harvest” collection – just in time for the holiday season. Simbi enables positive change for Haiti by providing clean water, fair wage job creation and business opportunities for other local businesses.
Simbi’s new “Hippie Harvest” collection features Sleepyz, Candy Coral Clay bracelets and hair accessories. With its range of flower, Mod and natural Mother Earth-loving prints and materials, the collection’s hippie modernism vibe is sure to be a hit with the free-spirited, festival-flitting flock.
“We’re excited to debut our new ‘Hippie Harvest’ collection this holiday season,” said Birgit Grossmann Coles, co-founder of Simbi. “This collection reflects a time when women freed themselves from convention and society’s expectations. Sometimes style is a statement and, now more than ever, we need to be heard.”
Haircare, skincare and self-care all in one portable satin bag! Made with silky soft satin, Simbi’s Sleepyz includes one scrunchie to keep hair salon-perfect and an eye sleep mask to protect the delicate area around the eyes during travel or beauty sleep – all in one portable pouch. The Sleepyz are priced at $19.99 each and available in three fun patterns including Disco Nap, Arrow Sleep and Wave Ashbury.
Though inspired by the favorite edible candy bracelets from childhood, Simbi’s new Candy Coral Clay bracelets are meant to sweeten up one’s outfit, not their tummy. Handmade from Haitian mountain clay, hand rolled and glazed by Haitian artisans, this new collection is delectable and tasteful without the calories. The Candy Coral Clay bracelets retail for $30 and are available in Raspberry, Sea Foam and California Dreaming.
The “Hippie Harvest” collection also includes hair ties in eight new patterns including Vans Check, Tutti Fruity, Mellow ’Shroom, Silverwaves, Arrowswift, Yogi Green, Free Love and Butterfly Kisses, priced at $3 each and Skinnyz scrunchies in six new color waves including Negroni Dots, Cheetah Power, Woodstock Flowers, Polka Dots, Flower Crown and Check Mate Mod, which retail for $4.50 each.
The individual “Hippie Harvest” Swimbi scrunchies are priced at $6 each and available in six new colors and fun patterns including Saged Vibe, Palm Springs, Healing Herbs, Desert Sued, Pink Boa and Gray Drum. Made from quick-dry swimsuit fabric, each Swimbi Scrunchie’s surface produces less friction on damp or wet hair, for all of the hold that you need, with minimum tear. They dry eight times faster than a traditional cotton scrunchie and are far more resistant to shrinking and chlorine. Crafted to be the same size as a hair-tie bracelet, Swimbi Scrunchies are designed to not bend, break, rip, or crease even brittle bleached hair.
Simbi’s best-selling Inspiration Charm Bracelets put the socially conscious, eco-friendly company on the map, and now includes expanded product offerings that include up-cycled bracelets, necklaces and custom charm engraving.
During the week of Black Friday, Nov. 21-28, shoppers can stock up on their Simbi favorites with the code “BLACK25” for 25% off the entire site. Additionally, from Dec. 16-20, Simbi will offer a 15% site-wide with the code, “SIMBI15.” The last day to order in time for Christmas delivery is Dec. 20, 2022.
“There’s nothing better than choosing a gift that makes someone happy, while also giving back to a cause that’s close to their heart,” said co-founder Lori Manuel Steed. “Our ‘Hippie Harvest’ collection is a win-win for perfect gift giving!”
Relying solely on solar-powered energy provided by NRG, Simbi’s manufacturing facility in Haiti has a zero-carbon footprint. The company uses organic, biodegradable products and follows a slow fashion commitment to sustainability that includes the reduction of the industry’s waste stream, decreases in water pollution and minimum contributions to greenhouse gas emissions.
Every Simbi product sold provides funding to purify at least one gallon of water per day. Through its affiliation with DloHaiti’s Watering Minds, a for-profit venture providing safe drinking water to underserved areas of Haiti through a decentralized water purification and distribution model, Simbi is able to bring awareness and give back to the local community.
In keeping with its purpose to improve lives, Simbi aligns its product development and operations with universal principles on human rights, labor and environmental justice, and takes actions that advance societal goals.

Founded after the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti, longtime friends Birgit Grossmann Coles and Lori Manuel Steed were inspired to create a socially conscious, eco-friendly accessory company that would improve lives. With job creation—250 and counting—and providing clean water—up to 25,000,000 gallons—at the heart of Simbi’s mission, they discovered the best way they could support those most affected by the catastrophe, while pursuing what they love: Haitian artistry, ethical fashion, and living with purpose. The purchase of each handcrafted product enables Simbi to invest in local partners who are working to create positive changes for Haiti through clean water, job creation and business opportunities for its local partners.
