In a world of faster, cheaper, more, shopping small is about returning to a slower, thoughtful, craft-based consumption.
It’s about fabric that feels good and is safe against your skin, that treads lightly on the environment, workers that are paid a fair wage, and buying designs directly from the person who created them.
About being valued as integral member of a small community rather than a number toward a bottom line of a big box store.
When you shop small you are supporting local makers dedicated to this philosophy and these values as well as helping sustain local industries that are in danger of dying out.
We believe in small production runs, and low-minimum suppliers to reduce waste and keep our footprint small.
We are also always working to constantly go further: more craft, more sustainability, and less waste.
We make our clothes in New York to support an industry and heritage that is in on the verge of being lost forever.
The garment district in New York used to span from 25th St. to 42nd St. and is now reduced to just a few blocks. It is not easy or cheap to make our clothes in New York but it is something we believe in and are dedicated to.
We hope you share the journey with us …
