OUR MISSION is to create garments in an ethical manner by paying our workers a fair wage, designing garments that are not trend focused, and using natural fibers when possible. We produce 80% of our garments in NYC with experienced knitters who work with both handloom knitting machines and Shima Seki whole garment knitting machines. Both processes create a fully fashioned product, meaning no left over materials. Any yarn left over from previous seasons is recycled into other projects or donated to non-profits such as the Textile Arts Center.
We believe in creating garments that will inspire creativity and promote wearability. Our inspiration comes first and foremost from the fiber and texture of the yarn. To highlight this our silhouettes are simple in shape and not trend focused. Our belief is that a well-designed, long lasting garment is an important component of sustainable fashion.
As stated above, our garments are made with natural fibers when possible. For 2015 we hope to take this a step further by working with local yarn mills based in the USA.
