Welcome to Tumble.
We are so glad that life sent you in our direction. Our story belongs to you just as much as it belongs to us.
We are human. Equal parts messy and masterpiece.
Tumble is a small, female owned business. We design jewelry, wall hangings and co-collaborate with some of the most talented designers to bring you apparel, paper goods, and other gift items. You can also find a assortment of products by other makers. We believe in shopping small, sustainable, and in the highest quality.
We started our brand back in the Fall of 2015 under a different name (Genuine & Ginger), and recently rebranded to call ourselves Tumble.
As I (Kyla, the founder) began to reflect on the past few incredible years in business I knew it was time to choose a name that really reflected all that this business has meant to me and my team.
In the jewelry making process, after a piece has been designed, cut, shaped, hammered, and soldered it often looks discolored, mangled, and almost unappealing.
But then, it gets tumbled.
When a piece of jewelry is in the tumbler it rolls around with hundreds of pieces of small stainless steel for hours. It’s like little hammers hitting the piece over and over. This hard metal confronting your fragile piece of jewelry relentlessly and yet it doesn’t get harmed or broken. Instead in the end it strengthens your piece and comes out brilliantly polished, looking nothing like it did when the process began.
OUR LIVES ARE JUST LIKE THAT. We are fragile people figuring out who we are, what our function is and how we can thrive & make an impact. It is when we experience tension and challenges that we see how strong we are. We end up more polished, prepared and unshaken as we go through the world, day after day. That’s the magic.
So yeah, Tumble is your story and it is mine and we are better for it.
