Mother Earth has taken a beating. For millions of years she shucked off icy glaciers and comet strikes before finding her balance and spinning on without complaining. How did she do it? Every organism chipped in of course. Let's start with the way she cycles fresh water from icy mountain streams to ocean shores. Rain pours down mountains filling streams and lakes, giving us gorgeous sights like Crater Lake and Yellowstone Falls. Not bad for step one. The rivers wind down black mountains and green plains emptying into the sea, mixing with salt water and keeping salinity at a safe level for ocean life, for the seals of Monterey, CA diving for fish. Colossal thirsty clouds suck water back up again and gush down on the hills and peaks, restarting the process.

What does this have to do with mushrooms? Well, these tiny fungi have their own part in the cycle of life. They break down dead organic matter and redistribute it back into soil, feeding nearby plant life and cleaning the area of the past. They’re the unsung heroes of the dirt. Yeah, it's not as glamorous as beaches and waterfalls, but they do their part every second of the day. And maybe that's why we want to sport these little fungi. If millions of them can work in unison fixing up Mother Earth without complaining, maybe we can do the same.

 

  • INGREDIENTS: 88% forest fiber from acacia, eucalyptus, poplar, pine, spruce, beech, birch, and maple trees grown on tree farms in Eastern Europe, 12% spandex for stretch. 
  • FIT: High waist hits at belly button, tight leg throughout, secret pocket in back waistband, 2" inseam for all sizes. Madison is wearing size L and is 5'10", 34" bust, 29" waist, 40" hip. Perfect for autumn and winter dreaming under layers of quilts :)
  • WE CARE DEEPLY: Black with silver shroom 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 - Clothes can only be made cheaply if people and/or the planet are being exploited. In 2022, the reality is we are extracting limited resources from the planet to make limitless things. The more plastic clothing made in slave like conditions overseas we support with our hard earned dollars, the more we tell brands that YES, we are down with limitless consumption. When we pay workers a living wage and consider that the planet cannot survive at the pace we are overproducing, clothing can't be inexpensive. We need so much less than we're told we need, therefore do not need to buy dozens of $6 items. It's always better to save up for ethical pieces. (This message is to those with some disposable income, not to those living in poverty.)

We pay a premium for high quality fabrics and labor. While an average top may cost $2.50 for Shein to make, we pay anywhere from $30-$50. That means on a $78 dollar top, profit may be $30-40, which must cover operating expenses (website fees, shipping, advertising, freight charges), taxes, and payroll to our fairly paid employees. 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 heirloom piece you'll treasure for years.


Q - When are sold out items restocked?

A - We don't make the same thing twice, and this is why: our creations are art! An artist would not repaint the same piece over and over. And for you, our beloved customer, this means your piece is very unique and bespoke. No one else will have it. This is how we used to make clothes long ago-- items just for you that are meant for you and not mass produced to maximize profits.

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 true 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, made in the USA, 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!

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!

Perfect

As usual, I love these! I love the mushroom print on these.. subtle so the shorts are so versatile but still fun. I’m finding the thicker material to be less opaque and also I think the hem of the shorts ride up less!
