Sustainability

Bigger Picture Sustainability

Our commitment to sustainability runs through everything we do, not just what we make. We prioritize ethically sourced and responsibly produced materials. We design for maximum utility and lifespan, and our members-first model is designed to reduce the waste and overconsumption that has defined the apparel industry.

Multifunctionality

Our design philosophy combines modularity and systemness to create the fewest number of products for the maximum possible uses. We design all the products to work together to eliminate the need for hyper-specialized garments and over-consumption.

Membership

Our membership model may be our most radical act of sustainability. Instead of selling to customers, we work with our members to meet their needs while reducing waste and overproduction. We make what our members want and nothing more. We grow as our community grows instead of just making more stuff.

Circularity

The most sustainable garment is the one that’s never made. Each trade-in helps us make less by keeping our garments in circulation as long as possible. When you return your pieces to us, we clean, refurbish, repair, and resell them to prolong their lifecycle and avoid the waste of making new things.

Materials

We take responsibility for everything that goes into our products. But sustainability is a multifaceted challenge. Minimizing the environmental impact of each element is critical but quality is essential to make garments enduring and resilient. So we only use products that meet both the highest quality and sustainability standards.

Pertex

We use only Pertex fabrics for our shells because they are light, breathable, and quiet while also being 100% recycled.

Re:DOWN

We use Re:Down because it is both 100% recycled and achieves the highest quality standard of 90/10 down to feather ratio, and 700 fill power.

French Goat Leather

Vegan leather is very sustainable but does not reach a quality standard high enough for all eventualities. Goat leather is more durable than vegan leather while being a more sustainable resource than traditional leather.
