Many brands mentioned rising prices of materials, missing the mark with demand estimates + supply chain delays as real issues lately. The following are no longer making clothing:
- North of West
- Study New York
- The New Blak
- Two Days Off (now selling some sweet weekend projects)
- Winsome Goods (now selling sewing patterns)
On the other hand, many are forging ahead! Above are a few things that caught my eye along the way.
- Organic cotton leggings, shorts + tanks made in Los Angeles + dyed with onion skins collected from local grocery stores from Groceries Apparel.
- Danu Organics' fully compostable jeans.
- A lovely, organic cotton knit made from leftover yarn (from their main sweater collection) in California from Curator.
- A bright, linen set sewn by Nettle's team of five.
- Pants made in LA from 100% North American waste cotton from Everybody World.
- Organic cotton/natural rubber elastic, corozo/tagua nut buttons + organic cotton thread (for making or repairing our own compostable clothing) for sale at Danu Organics.
On the resale front:
- I have enjoyed dipping into Noihsaf Bazaar's new home recently. It just makes a little bit more sense to me now.
- Renewal Workshop has been aquired + will no doubt be a part of something positive. We are just not able to buy directly from them anymore.
I'm so grateful for all the hard work, perseverance + innovation these brand share with the world! It's always exciting to see what creativity can do, and I can't wait to see the new spring collections arrive in the next few weeks!
