Lastly, and most importantly, I believe we must not only look good, but also protect our suffering planet. My goal is to merge unique design with social & environmental consciousness. I work hard to provide stylish, functional, and durable products that people will love and enjoy.

All of our products are handmade in a smoke and pet-free environment from "green," recycled vintage fabrics.
