What is sustainable fashion? Sustainable fashion, also called eco fashion, is a design philosophy which aims to create a system which can be supported indefinitely in terms of human impact on the environment and social responsibility. In choosing fabrics I aim to use materials that require less water and pesticides for production, such as linen, hemp and organic cotton, In order to reduce waste and a overstock of sizes each pieces is made to order.
Do you offer wholesale? Yes. Please contact me here for a list of available wholesale designs and pricing.
Do you do custom orders/ fittings? If you are in the Boulder/ Denver area you are welcome to come by the studio and try on pieces to find a size, and style that works best for you. As each piece is made to order I am able to shorten/ lengthen sleeves, hems, cuffs etc but at this time do not customise pieces in regards to width, necklines or do custom designs.
What is IJM? IJM, or International Justice Mission is a global organization that protects the poor from violence throughout the developing world. A portion of each sale goes to support IJM and their work.

Will my garment shrink when I wash it? All fabrics are prewashed, dryed and ironed before being sewn up so no shrinkage should occure. Due to the nature of linen, when worn it will soften over time.
