As a mindful design house, we seek to do things in a less-impactful way.
Whether we are trying out new innovative recycled fibers, utilizing leftover materials, or choosing innovative new production methods that maximize yield and minimize waste, our goal is to create unique product with minimum negative influence.
A brand about makers, we work with small factories and makers around the world and build our collections around their unique capabilities and skills. Piece by piece, we hope to reconstruct the story of American fashion with bold unique design that is undeniably wearable.
