About

☆ Step into Stardust ☆

I founded AraStar on the idea that You ARE A STAR. Seriously. Every living thing is a miracle wearing stardust, and the world will be a better place if we treat it that way. I want AraStar Apparel to remind others of the magic and interconnectedness of life in the cosmos, helping to bring an attitude of gratitude and creative awareness into everyday life.

“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. ― Carl Sagan
"You are something the whole universe is doing, in the same way that a wave is something the whole ocean is doing." ― Alan W. Watts

In my home studio, I expertly handcraft artisan apparel from earth-conscious organic materials (and a whole lotta stardust!). My unique fits and fabrics are great for yoga, dance, casual wear or festive flare. I imbue love, gratitude, and respect into each piece of AraStar Apparel trusting that the prayers stitched into these goods will ripple outward to share blessings with all! Seriously.

I proudly practice “Slow Fashion” and each piece is made-to-order for optimal fit and durability. I am committed to nature stewardship in business ~ I incorporate recycled, organic, and sustainable materials into all creations, packaging, and processes. I use low-impact fiber reactive dyes, hemp, organic cotton, organic bamboo, and ecological rayon from waste soy fiber. And I’m currently striving towards Zero Waste, discovering new avenues of recycling and reuse. (If you seek small fabric scraps, please message me!) AraStar also benefits environmental causes monthly ~ thanks to your support, I am driving the change I wish to see in the world.


☆ ORIGINS ☆

AraStar's origin story is intricately intertwined with Yoga. . .

Art and design have always come to me naturally. I learned basic sewing skills from my mother at a young age, and taught myself about construction techniques and pattern designs from books. I excelled in art throughout school, as it was my escape from the mundane challenges of adolescence. As a teen, I struggled with depression and took to thrill-seeking. One day, I was arrested for shoplifting, and everything changed. While the establishment put me into rehabilitation programs, my mother grounded me for two months and gave me the book, "Twenty-Eight Days to Yoga". It radically shifted my worldview and put me on a whole new trajectory to self-discovery and discipline. Since the age of 17, Yoga has been my downbeat, helping me to find a daily pace of growth and freedom. Now, 17 years later, Yoga is integral to my life and work.

Growing up in a low income family, my desire to make clothing always arose from resourcefulness ~ how can i turn what i have into what i want? Yoga has taught me the same discipline applies to life in general. With focused attention, I can use my body, mind, and emotions to create the life experience I most desire.

My highest hope for AraStar Apparel is that it reminds others of something greater... the beauty of life in the cosmos... the stardust and magic we are made from... our ability to sculpt reality & expand awareness for the good of all. May we each remember our creative potential to be the change we wish to see in the world.

“Creativity takes courage. ” ― Henri Matisse
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” ― Pablo Picasso

I adore all the positive feedback & glamor shots I receive from my customers ~ it drives me forward to continually improve and expand my offerings. Thanks so much for all your love & support!

I am happy to customize items for you! For subtle changes (like screen print placement) simply add a note to your order.
Add Custom Screen Prints to any item: https://www.etsy.com/listing/157012706.

For big changes or new creations, please send me a Custom Order Request. I charge a pattern creation fee + time & materials fees.

☆ Customized items are NOT eligible for return or refund.
But they ARE eligible for alterations. If for any reason it's not as planned, I'll fix it.

☆ Sizing ☆

Each listing contains a size chart with actual body size measurements. For the best fit, please measure yourself and compare to the AraStar size chart.

☆ Custom Sizing ☆
I'm happy to offer most Custom Sizing at no extra cost. If you're in between sizes, simply add your unique measurements in a note with your order. Please note that Custom Sized items are not eligible for return nor refund, but they are eligible for alterations.

If you seek additional XXL Plus sizes, please send me a Custom Order Request. XXL sizes will require extra costs to cover additional fabric or custom pattern creation.

☆ Duties, Taxes, Import Fees ☆

Buyers are responsible for any Customs and Import Taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to Customs.

If a buyer refuses to pay their Customs Fees & the item is returned to me marked "Not Called For," the buyer will NOT receive a refund for shipping charges. If the item was Customized or Custom Sized, the buyer will not receive a refund for the item because Customized items are NOT refundable.

You can help anticipate any fees by using ImportCalculator.com.

☆ Order Status ☆

Curious about your order status? Check your receipt or Purchases section. You'll see Processing Time & Estimated Ship Date. If it's not past your Ship Date, please rest assured ~ your order is in the queue and will be created & shipped on time. If for any reason I cannot ship your order on time, I will message you about it ASAP.

You can also track your packages from your Etsy Purchases section.

☆ Low Impact Dyes ☆

AraStar fabrics are dyed with low-impact fiber-reactive dyes. These dyes are safe, non-toxic, & environmentally friendly. They permanently bond to the fabric, providing excellent color-fastness. No toxic mordants are required in this dye process, only salt & Soda Ash. Natural variations in color can sometimes be seen on certain fabrics. All natural white fabrics are undyed, and some have been lightened with hydrogen peroxide, not chlorine bleach. Most individuals with a small degree of chemical sensitivity can wear organic clothing with fiber-reactive dyes. But undyed fabrics are even safer. If you have sensitivities, please add a note to your order, and I'll thoroughly prewash all your fabrics.

☆ Sustainable Fabrics ☆

At AraStar, I am committed to shrinking the environmental footprint of fashion. I use hemp, wool, certified organic cotton, and sustainably crafted viscose from soy waste fiber & certified organic bamboo (with some minor Elastane Lycra content for stretch). My manufacturers capture 99% of suspended solids from waste waters, and they adhere to Worldwide Responsible Apparel Production (WRAP) Fair Trade practices. I strive toward Zero Waste in all my production processes. I reuse & recycle 100% of waste materials, and I ship in reusable 100% recycled packaging.

For best fabric longevity & resilience, wash these sustainable knits in cold water and hang dry.

☆ Gift Wrapping & Packaging ☆

All orders arrive gift-wrapped in 100% recycled kraft paper (multiple items are wrapped together). If you seek individual wrapping, please message me before ordering.

All mailers are 100% recycled plastic and are reusable, resealable, & recyclable. Please carefully open your mailer along the outer perforation so you can reuse & reseal it.

☆ Wholesale & Bulk Discounts ☆

✶ No Wholesale
I don't currently sell wholesale, as I'm the only creatress here, and I'm not setup for high volume sales. I proudly practice slow fashion and each item is handcrafted-to-order.

✶ Dancers Bulk Discount
If you'd like to purchase 5 - 10 identical items for your dance troupe, I can create a Custom Order that includes a 20% discount. This is like getting 5 items for the price of 4. Fabric colors and standard sizes (S, M, L) may vary, but no other variations or customizations, thanks.

☆ Sales, Coupon Codes, Discounts, Sponsorships, & Giveaways ☆

I always post current coupon codes & sales in my Shop Announcement (top of the page). The best way to find about exclusive sales, discounts, giveaways & more is to join the AraStar Newsletter (goo.gl/sLrYWQ) and follow AraStar Apparel on Facebook & Instagram.
