Safety on and around the college campus is a key concern for everyone.

We have visited and communicated with countless colleges and universities each year. Our brand has become successfully recognized, and as we speak with students and parents alike, it becomes increasingly apparent that campus safety is of great concern to all of us.

At many colleges, various resources are available to the students.

They may include:

  • Safety committees made up of students, campus security and police
  • Climate surveys to gauge student sentiment
  • Culture of inclusion: campus + community events, intramural activities for students and campus police
  • Safety tools like security escorts, blue-light system, safe rides and yes, whistles.

BLO Vintage was born back in 2014.
Our Founder's vision came to her after years of carrying the whistle her mother gave to her as she embarked on her college journey.

The whistle she was given was the same whistle her mother received back in 1960 when she too ventured off to college. This heirloom signified love; a mother-daughter connection as well as a means for safety.
There are few moments that compare to that first nerve-wracking moment you move out on your own. It was more than just a safety precaution—it was a token of love, a reminder of the bond she shared with her mom. 

BLO Vintage designs are handcrafted with the same multi-faceted purpose.
They include pieces which are made with various types of whistles - meant not only to make totally unique pieces of jewelry, but also to provide a sense of protection, and to carry a story — and what the story tells is up to you.
BLO Vintage campaigns throughout each year, raising awareness for Campus Safety. We believe everyone should carry a whistle for safety.
