There are so many amazing brands that are just beginning to blossom and be featured. Some have been launched from necessity and answering a question or fixing a problem, some were discovered while enjoying a hobby that expanded into a brand. However, these brands were born and came to market, it is inspirational to see how a simple idea can come together and inspire a brand and create jobs. This article will feature Tokemi, Corc Yoga, Pacific & Pine, I AM (aranth), and Tixlover.

Tokemi & Tokemi Health

Deborah Skinner founded Tokemi and has added a CBD extension to her brand that specializes in alternative pain relief and specialty products with cannabis derivatives. Deborah use to work in a corporate setting and has completely transitioned into the health and wellness start up space of business. Tokemi Health also has exotic items like doggy gummies and CBD cigars to offer their clients.

Affordable quality is how to best describe this brand and their offerings. The Tokemi brand also has clothing and accessories available via their website.

Corc Yoga

The Corc Yoga story begins where many of life’s best stories start, with adventure. Traveling through Portugal, Corc Yoga founder, Christine Moghadam, discovered the beauty of one of the nation’s most bountiful resources, the cork tree. Feeling inspired, Christine left Portugal to design & develop a one-of-a-kind product equally beneficial for people & the planet. The result? The world’s most sustainable yoga mat. Made from 100% organic cork sustainably harvested from Portugal, Corc Yoga is committed to providing the most natural products to yogis around the world while supporting sustainable practices, fair wages, & a clean environment. For every yoga mat sold, Cord Yoga donates a percentage of every sale to support a variety of youth mental health programs in Portugal and abroad.

Pacific & Pine

A husband and wife collaboration from the Pacific Northwest defining outerwear with a style. Their website reads; “We wanted to start a brand that represents our love for the outdoors. Fishing, camping, and traveling around the beautiful PNW has us all sorts of inspired to put all our love and effort in to getting our name out there, and in turn hopefully pushing others to get outside! Thank you so much for your support and for stopping by”!

I AM (aranth). Pleasurable Health

A healthy snack that originates from the world-famous Mayan Ruins of Mexico. This husband and wife team decided to explore healthy snack alternatives for their kids and spent over two years exploring and perfecting the recipe. Being a health and wellness coach, nutritionist, and mother of 4 children, realized just how much food influences their everyday lives.

Tixlover.com

Founders Eric Johnson and Mark are on the frontier of what is next for tickets, events, and the arts. While Tixlover.com launched right before the pandemic of 2020 hit the United States and the world, the brand concept of “Tix Lover” is exciting and affordable. As of now, you can see what the founders are up to and where tixlover.com will land in the events prover space. Do not count them out yet, as the innovation and ideas are flowing and growing within this brand! Follow them.

Finding new and exciting brands to explore and support during this time is something that could provide unexpected happiness and kindness. It is reported that only 5.7 % of businesses that applied for the PPP Loans, received one according to Newsweek and Business.org. There is a lot of start ups and brands that will not survive during this time when all they may have needed to stay afloat was a little boost. Like one of my best friends would say, sometimes you need a “Hand up, not a handout”.
