"From day one, it has been our mission to create meaningful, long-lasting products from the best materials, all while honoring the earth's natural resources as well as the artisans who make our garments."

— Anna Wallack, Founder & Creative Director

A reverence for things made well & made thoughtfully

At the core of every garment we make is reverence. Reverence for artistry. Reverence for history. Reverence for cultural traditions. Reverence for people and the planet.

Our passion for S L O W fashion

We’ve all seen the fashion industry’s frenetic pace in movies like The Devil Wears Prada or shows like Project Runway. While exciting to watch from the comfort of our couches, there are inherent problems with the “fast fashion” approach: What's happening behind the scenes? Who's getting hurt? People? Animals? Our planet? All of the above?

None of that is OK with us.

See, we want this planet to be around for our children. And their children. And so on. We want our children to see the value in artistry and craft. And most of all we want our children to see the value inherent in every person who brings a product to life.

THIS is what drives our brand. And we're talking every aspect of it. From the materials we use, to the artisan partners we build relationships with, to our own production schedules.

Smaller collections, deliberately

We purposely have smaller collections that we stagger throughout the year rather than following the fast fashion focus on two big seasons. Scaling handmade items, like knits, is a delicate dance. You can't snap your fingers and scale overnight. And we refuse to participate in the nauseating practice of intentional overproduction.

This approach means we'll have less than demand. Not because we want to, but simply because we'll not answer the call to make more at any cost. We get that it's a strange concept in a world that's become increasingly normalized to immediate gratification and two-day shipping. But what is truly responsible? What is truly sustainable?

We won't scale manufacturing faster than our comfort level. To us, it's more important to make fewer, perfect items than more items that don't meet our standards for quality and ethics. We believe that slow and steady is the way to go when it comes to sustainable, organic growth
