SUSTAINABILITY PRACTICES

PRODUCTS

Our designs are seasonless and timeless, and designed with the slow fashion philosophy in mind.

Our garments are made to order, so there is no dead stock. We strategically cut to reduce wasteage as much as possible.

The scraps we create are cut and sold as quilting kits and used around the studio as napkins before being discarded.

Our tags are hand screen printed in house with water based ink

We avoid plastic as much as possible in our garments. We use snaps in place of buttons and metal rather than plastic zippers.

We design patterns to reduce waste. For example, we will shorten a sleeve slightly if it will allow us to lay out the pattern pieces more effectively.

Our production is in-house reducing transportation costs

We use low impact dyes and mordants

We avoid plastic when shipping whenever possible

We prewash all our fabrics without harsh detergents or chemicals

Our fabrics are biodegradable
