  • Small Batch Production

    Small Batch Production is distinguished by quality, locally sourced & manufactured items that are produced on a smaller scale with slower production time. It also includes spending more time on the design process, ensuring that each piece is quality made.

  • Why Slow Fashion?

    The Slow Fashion movement encourages a variety of sustainable practices, including environmental consideration to water usage, waste & landfill diversion. The principles of slow fashion include: sustainable materials, fewer collections, fair trade, minimizing waste, making great use of resources and transparency.

  • Locally Sourced

    The Greater Philadelphia area's textile recycling movement is having a renaissance. The goal is shifting the local textile system into a circular one that seeks to eliminate waste, keeps textiles in use for longer periods & redesigns end-of-life materials into new, usable items.

The fashion industry is one of the biggest contributors to the climate crisis. Due to fast fashion the industry accounts for nearly 10% of global CO2 emissions and consumes around 80 billion cubic meters of water (equal to 32 million Olympic-size swimming pools.) Only 15% of discarded textiles are recycled while the rest to end up in landfills.
