When we create a new piece for your Collection, our first intention is to make something of high quality that will last a long time and be loved, repaired and passed down. The most impact any of us can have is to use what we have and keep what we buy for a long time.
_
Next, we look at where the materials come from and whether they are made responsibly to the community and environment with a priority placed on organic, biodegradable and recycled fibers and trims like buttons, seam tapes and tags. We look at our makers, our partners, and choose incredible people (mostly women, but also wonderful men) to work with.

Wonder what we do with all of the inevitable fabric scraps from production? We endeavor to be ZERO WASTE by turning all usable scraps into Care products or Collector gifts like masks and moth-repelling sachets. Everything else we donate to FabScrap for use by crafters and fiber recycling.

And we don’t just consider the materials and production but consider shipping as well. All of our shipments are carbon neutral and come to you wrapped/printed/sealed in 100% post-consumer waste paper products or 90 day backyard compostables (labels AND stickers too!).

NAVIGATING A PANDEMIC-ERA, RESPONSIBLE SUPPLY CHAIN
In an effort to keep populations safe during the pandemic, countries enforced lockdowns and introduced measures that significantly impacted the global supply chain. As we adjust and recover, we are waking up in a new world – with decreased freight travel, demand for container shipping increased alongside a surge in e-commerce, causing widespread delays while loading and unloading containers.
_
While these disruptions are temporary, they are significant and will likely continue for the near term. We want to take a moment to express our deepest gratitude for your support and humbly request your continued patience as we navigate these challenging times. We will continue to do our best to communicate with you along the way.
