Our goal is to create exciting and inspiring pieces in a way that helps perpetuate time-honored production methods and lessens the strain placed on our planet by fashion’s hyper-industrialized and wasteful supply chain.

We search the world over for traditional and innovative ways of making things and take pride in the collaborative work we do with partners that prioritize integrity and creativity over shortsighted profitability.

We strive to incorporate non-mechanized, hand techniques into each of our garments and to highlight the hands of the people behind them.





An Open Dialogue


Eschewing the established wholesale model to provide a stronger value proposition and more direct communication with you, we deliver concise, seasonally-appropriate drops every few weeks.  Our pieces can be found here and in our newly opened Elizabeth Street studio in Manhattan.
