The Ariel Top is the quintessential “business in the front/party in the back” top. The plain minimalist front makes it a perfect day look worn underneath a jacket or cardigan. The lace back panels add an elegant and sophisticated twist that will turn all eyes when it’s time to party! Available in black and white for $125.
This stunning kimono maxi dress features hand-printed gold blossoms on a black background, adding visual texture and fun to your day and night. We love that the dress transitions excellently from day to night and from work to play. It’s perfect for holiday parties. (New Years!) It’s the perfect gift for your sister, your mom, and YOU! We love that the artisans who make this dress earn a sustainable source of income to support themselves and their families. The fabrics are ethically sourced in India and printed with eco-friendly, AZO-free dyes. Priced at $173.
We love this clutch because it mixes true crafts-woman-ship with sustainability. Made of recycled Huipiles, natural cotton lining, and recycled Corte Liso, this clutch is made with people and the environment in mind. The artisans, all women, are part of a small weaving fair trade cooperative and paid fair wages. The cooperative offers training and educational programs, including those on nutrition since malnourishment is a significant issue faced by the Mayan community. The artisans take any leftover Huipil material (nothing is thrown away) and turn it into accessories, which they sell at weekly local markets. All dyes are non-toxic. Priced at $60.00.
Each silk capelet is one-of-a-kind and part of the fabulosity of slow fashion: using every scrap! It makes a perfect statement accessory and fits all sizes. This short cape gives great hourglass proportions and the design based around off-cuts makes it a uniquely singular wearable art piece. It has a 3 snap closure, making it adjustable for larger or smaller fit. The fibers of hemp and silk are so similar, that they blend together like smooth butter, giving a shiny finish, yet stronger than you can imagine. This is fine, luxury fabric, in a classic style that can live in a connoisseurs’ wardrobe for many decades.

A gift for new beginnings and intuition.
Grey Moonstone is worn as a reminder to trust and listen to intuition and to have the courage of your convictions. Its connection to the moon is a reminder of the natural cycle of change as life waxes and wanes.

Made by artisans in Nepal. Priced at £29.95.
