F A B R I C
We are proud to offer the majority of our line in either USA grown organic cotton or modal (silky eco friendly fabric from beech trees). When we use either of these we buy them from a small supplier in Los Angeles that specializes in deadstock fabric. Deadstock fabric is what remains from larger fashion houses that would normally end up in a landfill.
We also use nylon spandex for our metallics and our activewear items. We buy these from another small supplier in Los Angeles, supporting American jobs and small business.

All our printing is with waterbased non-toxic ink. Hayley rinses screens after printing in her own backyard, where flowers and grass thrive and no harm comes to the earth.

Only procion mx dye is used as it's all absorbed by the fabric and not washed down the drain. Unlike natural dyes that require large amounts of water and gas to heat the vats, our dyes need only lukewarm water and very little of it. Procion dyes are created in a regulated laboratory, where natural dyes require large amounts of land to grow the materials (land that could be used for food in countries that really need it). We forgo any harsh mordants to bind the dyes to the fiber, so do recommend hand washing any dyed pieces.
