__________________________________________________________________________

Fashion is a personal process. For one garment there are multiple hands that form yarn into fabric and fabric into frock. With the fashion industry being the second largest polluter on the planet, many independent designers are finding creative ways to celebrate and honor garment workers + the environment through #nowaste and #zerowaste initiatives and slow fashion practices. We explored our local Pick n’ Pull— a salvage yard full of totaled cars with usable parts ready for the picking—in sustainable spring styles to champion the mindful movement taking over the fashion industry. Learn more about the sustainable practices of our designers below:

 

Ace & Jig works with manufacturers in India that value and practice the holistic kaizen philosophy of always continuing to improve, employing 90% women tailors and compensating them fairly while also providing free childcare, and fresh produce grown on site with reclaimed water. Locally sourced cotton is dyed with azo free-dye in a zero waste water facility. Ace & Jig also collaborates with artists and makers to repurpose cutting room floor scraps instead of adding them to landfills. If you attend one of their clothing swaps, you can even get your very own pile of scraps to craft with. Ace & Jig makes no waste serious fun.

 

Miranda Bennett practices sustainability in every inch of its process. Using locally sourced, natural dye materials that are by-products of other industries—such as saw-dust from central Texas grown and milled wood and avocado pits and skins from local food suppliers— Miranda Bennett’s designs have a minimal carbon footprint. All textile remnants and well worn apparel are utilized in the creation of new and unique products, both designed in-house and via collaborations with other artists through our Zero Waste Initiative. Everything else is donated to local quilting Austin Area Quilt Guild, They donates quilts to Safe Place, an Austin Shelter for battered women and children, as well as other charitable causes.

 

Raquel Allegra started her design career repurposing vintage tees from the Los Angeles County Prison System. She manufacturers and dyes everything in L.A.—hand tying and dyeing each tie-dye piece individually. By supporting CanopyStyle through her fabric selection, Raquel helps to protect ancient and endangered forests.

 

Black Crane is rooted in the founders Japanese heritage and sustainable production  practices All weaving and manufacturing take place in Los Angeles.

 


Baserange focuses on organic and sustainable easywear. Founded in 2012 in Copenhagen, and currently based in Denmark and France, their products are created with high quality organic fabrics while minimizing environmental impact, making each design comfortable and elegant. Green production is their goal!
