Meet Amiiiri and Triiinity Tafari of Free Spiiirit in Downtown

Today we’d like to introduce you to Amiiiri and Triiinity Tafari.

Amiiiri and Triiinity, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Our origins began in college. I {Amiiiri} had always wanted to own a brand and at the time, I was interested in starting a clothing line. Triiin & I had known each other for a bit but as we started to spend more time with one another we were quickly becoming best friends. I came over one day to see she had handcrafted a regular t-shirt into a purse. A whole, PURSE. I was wowed! I knew she the had the creativity, tenacity & attention to detail I deemed necessary in a business partner. Little did we know at the time that we would become life partners as well. But that’s a whole nother story for a different day :). We started consigning & upcycling clothing as well as making our own handmade designs and Free Spiiirit evolved from there.

Now, six years later, we are the Home of the Soulbeads {which are waistbeads, designed for womb healing, sensual awakening & soul stimulation} as well as many high vibration handmade cosmic crystal jewelry adornments and other holistic items such herbal tea blends & smokeable herb blends. We provide lookbooks & body positive art via prints for sale or access to our online gallery. We also run events in the LA area that embody FreeSpiiiritLife. We’ve organized & hosted weekly FS Open Mic Nights, Sacred Soul Yoga {our goddess-only yoga classes} & more. Our latest event is the Tafari Slumber Party a sex-positive Goddess experience where we embrace our sensual power and share sexual stories, tips, experience, girl talk, and fun. We have traveled events different places outside of LA in the past and aim to do so more in the future. We are all about empowering the people to Liiive Free in mind, body & spiiirit.

Has it been a smooth road?
Every business has its struggles to overcome and we are not without ours. In the early stages of our business, we both moved from Houston across the nation with barely a dollar & big ol’ dreams in pursuit of growing our business and planting ourselves in a place we felt most slated to thrive. That was a feat that many people told us we would not be able to accomplish and shouldn’t even strive for. But we did it, and we’re here now and have been for years. That always serves as a reminder to never listen to the naysayers. No one knows your path better than you.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Free Spiiirit story. Tell us more about the business.
We handmake beautiful soul stimulating cosmic crystal adornments with the hope that customers feel strength and beauty while gaining healing from our products. It is our intention to bring love and magic into the lives of each of the members of our Tribe. We use our intuition to craft the perfect crystal combinations, conjure herbal blends, create visual art and curate FreeSpiiirited experiences that are quality and encourage each Spiiirit to live freely and truly in tune with the unique awesomeness that lies within them all. We are immensely proud of our tenacity and growth and all the ways we have been blessed to serve the community.

As a lifestyle brand, we are committed to spreading FreeSpiiiritLife. This is simply put, the spreading of the freedom, knowledge & representation that allows each person to live their life to the fullest. We are very versatile beings with a variety of forms of creative expressions and we just want to inspire everyone to live life outside of the confines of perceived limitations! We are activist & advocates for women’s’ rights, POC rights & LGBTQ rights. As women of color in a romantic and professional relationship with one another, we work for a world of racial equality & gender equality and we promote body positivity, and healthy eating & living. We are constantly spreading information and sharing content we believe will encourage and enable people to find their inner power and be the best them they can be, by their own standards. It is our hope that person by person we can help to create a better world.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
Our industry is the industry of healing, which will always be necessary as long as we are human. Healing is so necessary in our society on so many levels, so we see our industry continuing to advance and grow.
