About

Ethically Made. Sustainably Sourced.

WHAT WE BELIEVE
At Forefolk, we're passionate about showing respect for our planet and the people on it. That's why we're committed to offering products that are ethically made and sourcing high quality materials that have a low environmental impact. Each piece is designed with practicality and comfort in mind, and our passion for sustainability fuels us to create timeless pieces that can be enjoyed for years to come. It is our hope that this will enable you to add to your wardrobe with intention and to buy better, not more.

ETHICALLY MADE
Each of our pieces are made by hand at our small studio in St. Paul, Minnesota. Our founder and designer, Erin, personally makes each and every piece.

SOURCED WITH CARE
Our yarns are produced by small family farms and happy sheep in Peru. We strive to source the highest quality fibers with the minimum environmental impact, and no harmful practices are used in obtaining our wool. Read more about our sourcing on our website at www.forefolk.com

THE LITTLE THINGS
We understand that every aspect of our business has an impact on the planet, so we're always looking for ways to be more responsible and sustainable. Our products are packaged using only recyclable materials, and we never use plastic. We take care to produce as little waste as possible by reusing, recycling, or reducing consumption whenever possible.
