East/WESt developed naturally while on a quest to be part of the solution not the problem.
quality is timeless
over a decade of working in the apparel industry - traveling and seeing the world, both the beauty and the ugly has taught us how to make more sustainable choices and to question the norm when it comes to an industry that's fueled by new seasons, new collections and giant stores teaching us to buy more, more more.
americans alone send 10.5 million tons of clothing to landfills every year. And many sectors of the industry are only producing lower quality product with little or no attention to the earth, and the long term impact of their decisions.
In the clothing sector of the market Buying vintage clothes is the most earth friendly thing we can do. And so we've gotten into the business of finding, washing, repairing and reselling vintage clothing that we feel are worth the effort.
Aside from the vintage product we also create our own line of clothing made from leftover, vintage or deadstock materials. We will also bring old garments and materials back to life with garment dying, repurposing and patching. We also carry an assortment of natural products and product from arists, friends & people we've met on our life journey. A community who values quality, craftmanship and creating something new & fresh.
we believe that if you buy new - make sure it will last and that you will proudly have it in your wardrobe for a long time - that the quality will withstand time & become a loved vintage piece for someone else down the road - should you care to pass it on.
There are a lot of places to buy vintage. Our promise is that we will offer a currated, modern selection for the entire family with reasonable prices so buying vintage and buying quality can be a part of your life too and you can join us on being part of the solution.
We stand by this mission and will help you do whatever is needed to continue the cycle of vintage clothing as part of your daily wardrobe.
