The American Great Plains run roughly from North Dakota southward all the way down to Texas. We had been driving the camper for 5-6 hours before finding a spot smack in the middle of the plains: Chautauqua Park campground in Southeast Nebraska. It was early May and we pulled in just as blue dusk set over the pink glowing mountaintops.

We heard the stories of luna moths in the area. They brought good luck. They bring visions of the future and so on. But had only the task of setting up camp on our minds. We unhitched the camper and let the dog out when he got out in a scent. It must have been a good one because he was gone in a flash. So we did what anyone would do: laced up our boots and ran into the cool dusk after him. We found Byron (the dog) pretty quick out near a small rushing stream at the bottom of the mountain. And just as we leashed him if the luckiest thing  happened. The biggest, greenest luna moth flapped her silky wings on a tree branch over the stream, maybe two arms length’s away. Now these only live for around 5-10 days at most, so she really has to make it count. We watched her for a good 10 minutes until the darkness took over.

We walked back to the site in a kind of meditation. We knew something for sure. We had to commemorate her with something good. We needed something simple, yet eye-catching. Not only that, it had to be all natural, obviously. We made the luna moth bra top from all organic tree pulp created in Austria. Of course we made it in America with fair wages and all water based inks and dyes. Anything less would be a let down.  And the fit is supportive enough to ditch a bra, so you can hop out of the camper and see your luna moth real quick, lickity split. We know you won't wear this top forever. But while you do, we want it to count. Just like the luna moth. 

 

  • INGREDIENTS: 92% forest fiber from acacia, eucalyptus, poplar, pine, spruce, beech, birch, and maple trees grown on tree farms in Eastern Europe, 8% spandex for stretch. 
  • FIT: "Supportive enough that you don't need a bra." Double layered. Serena is wearing size 1X and is 5'9", 43" bust, 35" waist, 48" hip.
  • WE CARE DEEPLY: Black with a sage luna moth and crescent moons printed with water based ink. Cut, sewn, dyed, and printed in downtown Los Angeles by small family owned shops where creators are paid more than minimum wage.

Q - Why is it so expensive?

A - Things can only be made cheaply when either someone is underpaid or it's completely automated. Unfortunately, machines haven't taken over all labor yet. So in the meantime we pay a premium for high quality fabrics and labor. While an average top may cost $5 for Forever 21 to make, we pay anywhere from $30-$50. That means on a $68 dollar top, profit may be $30-40 which then must cover operating expenses (website fees, shipping containers, freight charges), taxes, and payroll. Our end of the day profit is closer to $3-6. If we did this for the money, we'd be in the wrong industry. We do this to make an amazing garment you'll love for years.


Q - When are sold out items restocked?

A - Never. Nothing gold can stay. Each piece is specially designed for the vibe and spirit of the season. Once it's gone, it's gone!

Q - Where is it made and who makes it?

A - We only work with small family owned shops employing 8-10 people paying well above minimum wage in Los Angeles, CA.


Q - Is it sustainable and organic?

A - Anyone who claims sustainability while producing a product is greenwashing, intentional or not. We are responsible. To be truly sustainable we should all be wearing undyed, unisex, 100% recycled fabric scraps, government issued uniforms for 5-10 years at a time. While we are not that, we are much, much better than most of the alternatives out there. Our fabric is 99% closed loop, low plastic, made with fair wages, GOTS certified dyed, water based inked, and we donate money to a new charity every month. We will never stop seeking more ways to be make a cleaner and more beautiful piece of clothing!

Instantly Fell In Love!

Absolutely love wearing (living in) this top on a daily basis. I truly have had a tough time getting myself to wear my other clothes because it's so versatile, comfortable, and provides just the right amount of support (without restricting my breathing). I always usually wear bras and sports bras, but with this shirt, I don't need to (and it's not obvious about it)! It takes me right from yoga to errands, and is perfect for "getting ready" for weddings and special events, since it stretches right over hair and makeup without messing it up. Can't recommend enough.

Ultimate comfort & quality!

I deal with chronic illness & pain that makes bras & sports bras very uncomfortable because of the fabrics used and pinching/compression. These are an absolute dream! The fabric is so soft and thick with the perfect amount of stretch & support. Wearing under my sweaters all winter!

Perfect!

This top is my absolute favorite!! I adore the beautiful Luna moth print on it. I typically wear bra size 42DD but recently have switched over to these instead. I find that the 1X fits like a charm and has really great compression. I will definitely be purchasing more in the future. ❤️

Absolutely lovely

This top is magical. It’s so soft and incredibly well made. It is supportive and thick enough to go braless, but not too thick for summer. The moth is a beautiful design. I’m in love.
