Responsibility is the intersection of sustainable choices with social and ethical practices.
To be a fully responsible apparel brand is a constant, complex challenge. We operate in an industry that too often defaults to the status quo and contributes to the production of over 100 billion pieces of apparel a year, along with 92 million tons of textile waste.
We are a small, independent company manufacturing limited-run collections. We are far from perfect, but we hold ourselves accountable to continually improve how we treat people, planet, and products to build a better company and industry.
Since 2020 all of our primary fabrics have been certified by:
Our water resistant coatings are free of harmful “forever chemicals” (PFAS) and use a more sustainable, water-based alternative that’s just as breathable and water-repellant.
Next steps: We’re working towards removing PFCs from our accessories and trims by the end of 2024.
75% Recycled Synthetics by 2024
Making gear with recycled fabrics allows us toreduce our carbon footprint and water use, and by the end of 2023 we will be using 100% recycled polyester.
Next steps: Transitioning our nylon program to use more recycled materials by 2024
Less stink, less washing,
Two-thirds of a garment’s energy and water use comes at the hands of the consumer. We use fabrics and finishes with natural odor-resistant properties, like Merino wool, so you can wear more and wash less.
We’re constantly looking to do better: Using manufacturing and dying processes that consume less water and less energy, exploring options for resale and repair, and making gear that’s in it for the long run.
