Did you know:
- 20% of the world’s industrial water pollution is caused by the fashion industry.
- Fashion production makes up 10% of humanity's carbon emissions, dries up water sources, and pollutes rivers and streams.
- 85% of all textiles go to the dump each year. The equivalent of one garbage truck full of clothes is burned or dumped in a landfill every second.
When deciding what to wear (and produce), we have a moral obligation to consider how it’s made and its impact on the environment.
HERE IS HOW WE STAND UP
The outside of our blazers are made using deadstock fabric. What is deadstock? Deadstock fabric is upcycled fabric that is left behind from larger fashion houses, doomed for a warehouse, or worse a landfill, never to be scene again. We rescued these beautiful textiles and give them new life.
In some cases we use deadstock silk fabrics for liners. In other cases we use a cupro-cotton blend. What is cupro? Cupro is the by-product of the industrial harvest of cotton, specifically the waste fibers that are too small to spin. It is biodegradable as well as easily recycled, since it’s made from 100% plant-based materials. It's also hypoallergenic, breathable, anti-static, and stretch-resistant. So it's pretty much the best alternative to silk.
All of our buttons are made of recycled materials - either recycled paper or recycled polyester.
