Frequently Asked Questions
We launched a 45 day Kickstarter campaign back in March 2019 for $55,000. On the last day of our campaign—right as we were about to reach our goal—our campaign was suspended. It was devastating to say the least.
Here's what happened: We had some backers that donated to us instead of donating to the campaign directly, so we made the pledge on their behalf. We didn't thing it was that big of an issue, but that's a big no-no at Kickstarter. We learned a big lesson.
We worked everything out with Kickstarter, but it meant that we had to start over. We're fighters, it sucks, but we have to move forward. We've launched this campaign—for 10 days only—to stay on track for production. Our mission is to make vegan fashion the future, we're not going to let one setback get in the way.
Thank you to all of our supporters who have been so wonderful throughout this whole process. <3Last updated:
Veganism is a way of living that seeks to exclude the use of all animals products, in both diet and lifestyle. Veganism is not just a diet or lifestyle of avoidance, it’s an ethical stance. The vegan lifestyle is essentially a commitment to being a conscious consumer. Every decision and purchase is made with the intention of not contributing to the mistreatment and exploitation of animals. Veganism extends beyond a vegetarian or plant based diet, and eliminates animals from the equation for food, clothing, experimentation, entertainment, and any other form of exploitation.Last updated:
Vegan fashion is clothing and accessories that are made from non-animal derived fabrics and materials. The obvious animal materials vegans avoid are fur, leather, suede, silk, or wool. Animal by-products are sneaky and can be found fashion trims and accessories. Down feathers from ducks and geese are often used as the filling in jackets and pearl, shell, horn, and ivory can be found in buttons.Last updated:
We are fortunate to live in a time when more and more people are becoming keenly aware of the impact they are having on the world around them through the consumer choices that they make. Our goal is to be a leader in that fight by propelling this underlying movement of sustainability to its next logical step; the inclusion of the well-being of animals.
The fashion industry is currently one of the world’s leading contributors to world-wide pollution, through material and water waste. We have entered an era nightmarishly close to what the United Nations call, “a critical point of no return on climate change.”
It is also one of the largest supporters of factory farming, where animals are raised in horrific conditions specifically for their fur, feathers, and skin. Animal agriculture even surpassed oil as the top polluting industry in the last year. So, when it comes to sustainability in fashion we cannot ignore the elephant in the room; factory farms. We are living in a society that is built on the backs of animals as a commodity, and we’re going to change that.
Not only are the environment and animals being punished for the demand fast fashion creates; the workers and craftsmen within the system are being forced to work in poor conditions while receiving minimal compensation.
We aim to create systemic change in the fashion industry.Last updated:
