Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
- Margaret Mead
We get to know our supply chain and then share information about our supply chain partners with you. In developing our supply chain we evaluate each step around its impact on people and our planet:
People: Are the people involved in each step of our supply chain treated with dignity? Do we respect their rights, voices, and communities? We ask that each individual, company, and organization we work with domestically and internationally uphold these values. We pay the true cost of production and seek to protect worker rights at each step in line with the 10 fair trade principles.
Planet: What is the environmental footprint of each step in the product creation process and how are animals treated along the way? We evaluate the environmental impact of our fabric and the carbon footprint of transportation, aiming to source as many materials as reasonably possible for each garment in the same region of the world.
Women make up the majority of the workforce in the global garment industry, which has all too often disregarded their rights, safety, value, and voice. We only work with supply chain partners who share our commitment to the inherent dignity of all people and demonstrate it by promoting gender equity and women’s empowerment.
We aim to combat the invisibility and lack of transparency so common in this industry through consumer education. We actively seek opportunities to partner with and support others who share our vision for transformative, industry-wide change.
Restorative justice focuses on providing rehabilitation and reconciliation between victims, offenders, and the community. It is a central value in our work to remedy the market failure and exploitation that has become the industry norm.
The fashion industry all too often promotes an unrealistic and harmful standard of “beauty”. We thoughtfully consider whether our imagery depicts a healthy view of women and their bodies. Not only is this the right thing to do, but it gives you a sense of how clothing will fit and flatter.
We also incorporate this idea into our products themselves and seek sustainably sourced materials for all of our collections. Our materials are breathable and better for your health than the toxic synthetics we’ve all gotten used to.
The fashion industry can only improve when we all buy less and buy better. We all must pay the true cost of production, rather than the cheap prices made possible by cutting corners around sustainability.
We invite you to view clothing as an investment rather than fast fashion. To this effect, we produce meticulously and thoughtfully developed, flattering, and timeless clothing in the spirit of slow fashion that pairs well with other items in your wardrobe for your signature, polished look.
