"Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." - Brundtland Report
What does sustainability mean to us?
In today’s rapidly changing fashion industry, sustainability has become an overused buzz-word, often shrouded in exclusivity. It shouldn’t be. Our goal is to increase the number of communities that have access to sustainable, ethically sourced options. And to share knowledge that will help each other grow, and learn to do better. For us, and those we derive inspiration from, sustainability is all we know. Sustainability means treating people well. Buying for function and beauty, creating thoughtfully and for longevity, using every scrap to minimize waste and reduce cost. The bottom line--Sustainability is about assigning value to even the seemingly insignificant relationships and items. What you value, you take care of. And that is what we strive to do in all facets of our life and business, with the added bonus of sustaining ourselves and others through our work.
How do we incorporate sustainability in all aspects of our brand, mission, product, customer care?
We incorporate the concept of sustainability in to all aspects of our brand, product mission and customer experience, by creating ethically with attention to how our designs, vendors, production and end products affect the environment and people involved in the process. In doing so, we assign value to those exchanges and strive to create a product that is valuable to the consumer, that they will cherish for years and generations to come.
