Over the 30 years I’d been privileged to work in the apparel industry, I grew to love the product development process, and I learned so much while working for companies of all sizes. My favorite work experiences have included extensive travel to evaluate factories, develop products, and build relationships.
But my heart was empty. While my values and experiences drew me to build connections with the world, I watched company owners and upper management focus solely on financial growth without considering the impact we had on the environment-- and with no connection to the people who made our products.
I had two options to change my experience. I could abandon the industry entirely-- the problems and the parts I loved alike-- or I could try something bold. What if I could create a business that honored the earth, respected producers and their communities, supported opportunities for women at every level of the supply chain, and resulted in high-quality clothing made in natural fibers with beautiful and flattering cuts?
