Created in 2016, my womenswear line focuses on the connection between identity and style. My mission is to create comfortable, stylish clothing ethically and sustainably as an extension of the wearer’s individuality. From sweatshirts to denim, I work with two small factories and local contractors in the Bay Area to produce and dye my garments while always taking into consideration ways to reduce my brand’s environmental impact.
The Makers and Their Production Spaces
My products are made in the Bay Area sometimes by myself and most times by two local family-run factories.
The Making Process
I work with natural fibers, mostly organic cotton and hemp in both knits and wovens. Depending on the style, I will usually do garment or piece dye in the Bay Area. So the two processes can be source the fabric, get styles cut, sew in the factory, garment dye at the dye house, prepare to ship to the customer or source the fabric, cut into pieces to be dyed at dye house, get styles cut, sew in the factory, prepare to ship to the customer.
The Production Model
My production model favors a slow, small-batch one where I focus on making seasonless clothing that the consumer can wear all year long. I want people to wear my garments for a long time and be responsible with their purchasing rather than impulsive and less committal to keeping an item because the next collection is approaching fast with new ones.
Organic cotton and hemp fibers, and some deadstock cotton. I’m working towards mainly using GOTS-certified or OEKO-Tex fabrics that certify the sustainable and organic methods used throughout the entire process when producing fabric.
