"We carry the story of the people who make our clothes." - Ali Hewson



Week 1: IMBY
IMBY (which stands for In My BackYard) wants to help you build a lean capsule with classic, durable essentials versatile for expressing yourself for every occasion through all seasons. Everything they carry is proudly made in the USA under safe working conditions by workers paid fair wages with American-crafted, ethically sourced or deadstock/surplus fabrics that would have gone to the landfill otherwise. They believe in responsible pricing, so everything they sell is under $200.

Week 2: Osei-Duro


Osei-Duro (which means Powerful Medicine) is based in LA and their textiles and garments are produced in Ghana, India and Peru, using traditional techniques including hand dyeing and weaving. They are working towards a vibrant fashion industry that exceeds international production standards while respecting the right and aesthetics of local artisans, and their bold and distinctive style is best described as "Californian cool meets Ghanaian street".

Paisley and Sparrow's mission is to be a meaningful marketplace for high quality, stylish and affordable products. With every purchase you make, you are giving a woman in Ethiopia a way to support her family, a marginalized woman in India a hopeful future, a woman recovering from addiction a second-chance, and the opportunity to change a life.

Week 4: Cardanas (closed)
Cardanas is leading the ethical fashion movement with their affordable and versatile sneakers that do good. Proudly made in Ecuador with transparent labor practices and a localized supply chain to reduce carbon footprint, they also plant a tree for every purchase you make.
