Posted October 13, 2018 06:03:03 For those who want to keep their faith in a world full of conflict and hatred, faith incorporated clothing is here to help.
It comes in the form of clothing that helps to build a strong foundation of faith and comfort, but is also something you can wear everyday without having to think about it all the time.
“The idea is to build your faith through a simple, simple idea,” says Christian Hamsa, founder of Faith Embedded Clothing, which sells its clothes in malls and online.
“There are a lot of things you can do with faith incorporated, and that’s one of them,” Hamsas wife, Grace, tells TODAY.
Hamsas faith clothing is not a charity.
But as an employer who doesn’t have enough faith to donate to charity, Hams says he has a way to show his faith to his employees.
“I have a lot in common with my employees, and we’re both religious people,” Homsas wife says.
Hamas, who immigrated to the United States from Egypt, says she has seen the world through different lenses.
But as an American Muslim, Harsa says her faith has never wavered.
“My faith has not changed, it’s always been there,” she says.
And while she says it’s a hard thing to say, she’s confident in what her faith can do for people.
“It can make a difference,” Harsas wife adds.
“We are a diverse country, and there are people who are different, people who may not have the same beliefs.
But you are always going to find people who will give you a chance.”
For Hams, that chance comes through faith in his employees and the power of a strong community.
He says faith in her and his employees, as well as in the United Nations, can help us build the kind of peace we need.
“When we build trust, trust in the human spirit,” Hampsas wife explains, “and we build a community that is committed to peace, then that will help us in the long run.”
Faith Embedded is one of more than 40 companies selling faith-infused clothing, and Hams a third of the companies in the company, which makes shirts and clothing for churches, synagogues and mosques.
“In the last couple of years, faith integrated has been a big hit in our industry,” Hemsa says.
“People have been coming to our stores and buying faith incorporated clothes and saying ‘Thank you, I love the idea.'”
Hamsa says the concept has also caught on in his community, which he says is “very diverse” and diverse in faith.
“One of the big trends is the Muslim women are buying more faith incorporated apparel,” Hombsas wife tells TODAY, adding that Hams is getting the majority of his business from women.
Homsa is hoping the new faith-integrated clothing will continue to grow.
“You can’t take this trend for granted,” Humsas wife admits.
“But we’ve got to take this movement for what it is and try to create a space where everyone can come together and build a better world.”
