EAST/WEST DEVELOPED NATURALLY WHILE ON A QUEST TO BE PART OF THE SOLUTION NOT THE PROBLEM.
With over 30 collective years working in the apparel & footwear industries - traveling and seeing the world, both the beauty of nature and people and the ugly effects of pollution - has taught us the necessity to make more sustainable choices and to question the norm in an industry that's fueled by new seasons, new collections and giant stores teaching us to buy more, more and 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 to no attantion 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 overstock, vintage or deadstock materials. We will also bring old garments and materials back to life with garment dying, repurposing and patch mending. We also carry and assortment of natural beauty products and products from artists, friends & people we've met on our life journey. A community who values quality, craftsmanship 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 with withstand time to 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 curated, 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 and sustainably made clothing as part of your daily wardrobe.
