The first rule of sustainable fashion is simple: create clothes that last, as a garment worn is more sustainable than one consigned to the landfill.

When selecting materials for our collections, we evaluate the following metrics: Water usage, energy consumption, ecological footprint, toxicology, eutrophication, CO2 emissions and end-of-life. Through this process, only a select few materials align with our stringent sustainable values, and we refer to them as our 'Better Materials.'

Below are the materials we have chosen to work with thus far and a brief explanation of how they adhere to our sustainable values. We are always looking to the past and future to expand the breadth of materials selection. We promise to do our research, learn from our mistakes and be better stewards to the environment!
