Why Grace to the Humble?

Why Grace to the Humble?

 

Established in 2019 and rejuvenated during the global pandemic of 2020, Grace to the Humble is a brand that embodies thriving even in difficult times.

 

We define ourselves as a group who push boundaries and create impact through various mediums including fashion and content.

  

Our name is taken from the biblical passage 1 Peter 5:5 - 'God opposes the proud but gives grace to the Humble. This doesn't talk of pride in the context of joy over an accomplishment of yourself or others, but of a conceit that continually thrives at the expense of others. Therefore we cling to the type of humility Merriam-Webster states as freedom from pride or arrogance.

We very much believe a great individual can inspire and grow community, as well as a great community inspiring and growing a great individual.
