Materials & Sustainability
Most of our materials are deadstock fabrics and laces, excess yardage bought up by middlemen called “jobbers” from larger manufacturers and mills at the end of their production cycle. This is actually a really common way for small brands and independent designers to source materials, because they can’t meet the production minimums of large fabric mills. For us, this means the opportunity to source some of the best laces on the market despite our size, and to make sure those materials are sewn into something beautiful instead of winding up in a landfill.
As we grow we hope to be able to source materials from recycled and/or naturally derived fibers. We are in the process of learning about lace production and fiber sustainability, and making connections with forward thinking, innovative mills that we hope to work with in the future.
However, there is no “sustainable” way to produce clothing on the scale that we have been. Above all, our commitment to sustainability is expressed in our commitment to quality. We aim to make pieces you want to wear everyday, and that are up to the challenge.
