The Fabrics

We believe that well designed clothing can be made without compromising people or the planet. We only use environmentally-friendly fabrics in our designs that not only look great, but also feel great.

Modal: The Jersey Swing dress is made with a modal/spandex fabric that is soft to the touch. Modal is made from the pulp of renewable beech trees. Beech wood forests are natural and sustainable because they propogate on their own. 

Tencel: The Shift and Cocoon dresses are made with a tencel twill that is more absorbent than cotton and feels like silk. Tencel is made from natural wood fibers that require less water and are produced using a closed loop system that recycles the solvents for future use.
