Our Standards

Respect for people

We are strongly committed to ensuring our products are made with respect for the fundamental dignity of workers.

Respect for the planet

We push for better fibers and finishing processes in everything we deliver. There are zero hazardous chemicals and inputs in our curations.

Honesty and transparency

All the products we carry are free from any ingredient found on our Banned Ingredients List, one of the strictest in the industry.

Good things, made well

Our product curators obsessively research and review thousands of products. Beautiful, clean, and safe are all musts in our market, but what good is all that if the product isn't effective? We make sure each product in our curation checks all the boxes.

No animals were harmed

Our animal neighbors deserve to be treated with love and respect. We see this mentality as an integral part of intentional and sustainable living. All products in our curation are cruelty free.
