FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - Two Fairbanks teenagers have started a business with the goal of donating to non-profits in the community.

Poet’s Cloth is a clothing business founded by Logan Nave and Cade Smith with the goal to make a difference in their community.

“Poet’s Cloth is a primarily clothing based business where our goal is to create culture for God and man, and that’s kind of our approach to things. We are working with clothing now and we are looking to branch out in other ways. Our ultimate goal is to create both tangible and relational change in a culture,” explained Cade Smith, co-owner of Poet’s Cloth. “With every release we do, every item you buy from us, a pretty large portion, all the proceeds are going towards a non-profit this is designed around. So that’s sort of our mission and goal.”

Poet’s Cloth creates a line of clothing products inspired by a non-profit to which they wish to donate. The designs are created by Nave and Smith along with other artists they recruit to assist them.

“We’ve done them ourselves. For the neighbor release we had a couple young ladies help us with drawing the roses - super awesome artists. Going forward, that’s definitely part of what we want to do is seek out other artists, that they could come help us and that so we can promote them and their art,” commented Logan Nave, co-owner of Poet’s Cloth.

Poet’s Cloth has made two donations totaling to over $400 dollars to the Fairbanks Community Food Bank, and will be looking to begin their next project in the upcoming weeks.
