"Choice of raw material can impact up to 50% of any brand's environmental footprint"

Garbage in, garbage out. 

As a zealous proponent of sustainable fashion, our vetting process begins with the foundation of any clothing item: raw materials.


We only partner with brands who can answer where they source raw materials, whether it be sustainable fabric supplier or an organic cotton farm in India. We define sustainable raw material as fabric made with good intentions and efficient execution.
