Ethical and sustainable accessories for the modern free spirit.
Sustainability, ethics, and responsibility are at the heart of everything we do and every decision we make. We seek new and alternative materials that are the most sustainable. We aim to make the highest quality, timeless pieces that can be cherished and worn year after year.
We source and up cycle the finest quality natural, organic materials that take into account environmentally friendly, sustainable initiatives. We look for new, pioneering sustainable materials whenever possible .
Every step of our supply chain is considered to minimize environmental impact. We look for ways to support both environment and worker by reducing waste, energy, by ensuring fair trade practices, and cultivating long term relationships with artisans and craftspeople. Many of the factories we work with have been family owned for generations or are fair trade cooperatives, where our products are crafted by hand using time-honored techniques.
Designed to last a lifetime, our goal is to reduce consumer landfill waste. We are working to become a zero waste brand within the next 5 years.

We work with women cooperatives in the Philippines who weave and embroider our bags by hand. Most of these women are mothers, and making our bags allows them to earn a living as well as look after their children.
Our monograms are embroidered by women in San Francisco. We work with new immigrants who do not speak English and as a result have difficulty finding jobs. Unfortunately this means that they are often underpaid and abused. Our initiative provides these women with practical training and an alternative source of income.
Our sandals are made by a third generation family owned workshop in Athens. Each pair is meticulously crafted by hand using premium vegetable tanned leather.
Our bags and hats are made from natural straw that has been harvested, stripped and dyed by hand. We mainly work with seagrass a fast growing grass traditionally known as a weed.
The majority of “straw” on the market is made of plastic which stays in our ecosystem forever. Our straw fades with time giving it a unique patina. Eventually this straw will biodegrade and return to the earth.
Our sandals are made out of natural vegetable tanned leather. Vegetable tanned leather is made using only natural and organic tannins and contains no chemicals.
We are working towards zero waste by up cycling our factory scraps into small accessories and donating our straw scraps for use as fertilizer.
