Kōpilā Cashmere –
Cashmere is such a classic and luxurious holiday gift for any woman in your life. Kōpilā makes some of our favorite sustainable cashmere on the market. The brand was born out of a desire to bring conscious cashmere to consumers that is made from luxury raw materials by artisanal craftsmanship. The result is a range that is timeless yet relevant, that showcases incredible artisan skills. These are pieces to be worn, loved, and treasured for time to come. Kōpilā is proud to partner with The Good Cashmere Standard (R) by AbTF, so you can trust they have full visibility of the journey of your pieces. They only use nontoxic dyes – an issue we are super passionate about, and they offer a completely dye-free home wear collection! The brand also has a zero plastic packaging policy, and they use biodegradable corn bags, paper parcel tape, handmade lokta tissue paper, and the garment labels are even made from organic cotton. You can’t go wrong with any of their pieces – timeless, ultra-comfortable, and perfect to keep you cozy through winter.
Farm to Arm Regenerative Bags by 1 Atelier –
The 1 Atelier Farm To Arm Capsule is the first luxury accessories offering designed to be net-zero carbon, biodegradable, and waste-free. Starting with leather that is sourced from regenerative farms in the United States and vegetable-tanned by a 117-year-old American tannery using only natural ingredients, each piece is then meticulously handcrafted-to-order by the craftspeople at their Atelier in the Garment District of New York City. Already a pioneer in sustainable luxury, 1 Atelier set out to create a beautifully designed collection that contributes more fully to the drastic systemic change required to eliminate the devastating impact that the fashion industry has on the environment. There is a bag for anyone in this collection – they are sophisticated, elegant, and practical.
We feel that a beautiful coat shouldn’t cost the environment, should be made to last, and shouldn’t be thousands of dollars. CULTHREAD makes wonderful coat options that are ethical and cruelty-free – such fantastic gifts. We love their classic Faraday recycled vegan puffer jacket, as it is such a wardrobe staple. Something that will always be in style and easy to pair with any outfit. It is made of 100% coffee-cycled vegan leather, recycled fabric, and 100% post-consumer recycled fiber down insulation – it is light but will keep you warm! We love it in black and green. CULTHREAD also makes really cool cross-body puffer bags that are designed to support your needs on the go with an array of pockets inside. It is also weather-resistant and is incredibly durable. Again, like all other products from the brand, it is made from 100% recycled materials!
