OUR ECO MISSION

ECO & ETHICAL MANUFACTURING

We manufacture in the United States with talented craftswomen and craftsmen who work regular hours in a clean safe environment while being paid fair wages.

By manufacturing locally we not only significantly reduce our carbon footprint, but are able to drop in weekly with our children alongside to say hi (and thanks!), check in on production, and have a wonderful personal relationship with the talented people making our clothing.

ECO FABRICS

We use GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) Certified Organic Cotton

GOTS is the “worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.”*

By using GOTS fabrics many stringent criteria are met such as:
-Prohibition of toxic heavy metals, formaldehyde, aromatic solvents, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and their enzymes.
-Prohibition of chlorine bleaching
-Prohibition of Azo dyes that release carcinogenic amine compounds
-Prohibition of synthetic pesticides

In addition, Organic Cotton cultivation…
-Uses 90% less water
-Causes over 25% less soil erosion
-Causes 70% less soil acidification
-Protects the health of farmers and the biodiversity of our planet

ECO DYES

Committed to bettering our planet by greatly reducing water and environmental pollution and toxicity from the fashion industry, we will be releasing planet dyed garments beginning FW'20/SS'21.

Plant dyed garments are chemical and toxin free, made without the heavy metal mordants found in traditional dyeing practices around the world.

Where traditional dyeing waste is often dumped into local waterways polluting, poisoning and killing local vegetation and wildlife, plant dyeing waste is completely non-toxic and can actually be put back into the land as a natural fertilizer.

ECO CARE

We increase garment longevity and decrease energy usage by encouraging customers to:

-Wash in cold water and air dry their garments

-Use eco-friendly biodegradable detergents

-Mend and repair items if they become damaged over the years instead of throwing them away (embracing the ways of Wabi-Sabi and Kintsugi)

ECO DESIGN

Every garment is thoughtfully designed with silhouettes accommodating growth spurts and years of wear, creating longer closet lifespans and less turn over.

We build every garment with quality in mind allowing it to be worn for years, passed down,resold or donated.

ECO PACKAGING

We use...

-ZERO plastic (virgin or otherwise) in our packaging

-100% Recycled tissue paper to protect garments during shipment

-100% Recyclable / 100% Compostable mailers
