Consumers today keep clothing items about half as long as they did 15 years ago, and nearly 60% of all clothing ends up in incinerators or landfills within a year of its production.*
The shrinking lifespan and perceived value of clothing are major factors in the massive waste produced by the global fashion industry. It is our mission to provide true value and lasting products. By extending the lifecycle of a product, we distribute its environmental footprint, and by extension avoid the waste and emissions associated with both its disposal and replacement.
Customized for each individual client, made-to-measure garments are inherently more personal. We complement these garments with accessories made in small, limited edition batches so that each is truly special. Our hope is that these pieces will become cherished parts of their owner’s daily life as we take great care in designing them to wear well and age gracefully for years to come.
