COMMUNITY GIVEBACKS AND DONATIONS

Stemming from a resourceful nature as a small business, and our core values of creating an environmentally forward clothing store, unusable, stained, or torn clothing will often be re-designed to create something usable to avoid waste. Alternatively, we will frequently turn over our seasonal clothing (turning winter into spring), by turning pants into shorts to re-purpose our inventory— We have also proudly offered school programs with the help of local teachers spinning inevitable retail “dead stock” into something productive, offering art and textile students clothing pieces to practice on! With no risk or cost, students are guided to learn basic sewing and alterations, screen printing, and creative expression through fashion. Thank you to our local Schools for supporting this program and education.
