I am very passionate about using natural fabrics sourced ethically. Natural fibers are not harmful to the environment and when taken care of properly become more beautiful with age. I will always use vintage fabrics first, then I will try to source natural fabrics from vendors who purchase overstock textiles from other local clothing manufactures. If I purchase new fabric, such as linen, it must be certified using strict guidelines of environmental impact in textile production.
I want to create an authentic line of clothing that is original, and is good for you and the environment.
The fashion industry is perhaps the biggest producer of the most waste in the world. It is slowly changing, but there is a long way to go. That's why it so important to buy quality over quantity, and to shop from a small business that considers all these things into their business practices. Over production heads to the waste dump. Synthetic fibers and plastics in textiles are not biodegradable and are harmful to you and the planet. They seep into your skin and into the soil and water supply. Shopping from a local maker and or a small business helps eliminate so much waste. You can make a big difference in the world we live in by supporting a return to a thoughtful and considerate purchase. Who and what are you contributing to when you make that purchase? Think before you make your purchase. What's the story behind it? Dig deeper.
