We believe good things come to those who don’t waste.
There's nothing more wasteful than overproduction. That's why we produce all of our styles in small batch production runs averaging under 100 pieces per sku. This makes each and every piece that much more special to one day live on as a beloved vintage piece in yours or some else's closet.
As a small self-funded business, there's so much we wanted to do and take on from day one. But as a brand that values sustainable growth we faced limited resources to do all the things we wanted to do on day one but nevertheless we persevered and started with what we had. We started by offering three sizes of each style and used 100% of deadstock materials. As the business grew it's important for you to know what we've prioritized. We're so proud of how far we've come now offering over 70% of our styles in XS-2XL while maintaining small production runs.
We believe in ethical manufacturing and recycled materials. Because old water bottles and fishing nets look better on you than they do clogging landfills and polluting oceans.
OUR PRODUCTION JOURNEY
As a sustainably focused brand we value transparency in our production journey as it is a huge part of our story. Our production journey is made up of ethical fabrication sourcing and nurturing manufacturing relationships.
Our fabric sourcing is divided into two main fabrication groups: 40% woven & 50% knitwear.
📍SHANGHAI, CHINA WOVEN FACTORY our woven allocation is broken down between 50% novelty deadstock fabric and 50% deadstock dyed mesh.
📍NINGBO, CHINA KNITWEAR FACTORY 70% of our yarn is made from recycled yarn from PET also known as polyethylene terephthalate from sea bound single use plastic bottles. We are working towards reaching 100% recycled yarn use by 2025. We source all of our post-consumer water bottles from China and Korea.
Our dying process for our mesh & recycled yarns are used with eco friendly dyes and the wastewater is carefully cleaned and cooled before it is released.
