The moon is our gentle and eternal satellite, the goddess teacher quietly whispering from above, "It's only a phase."

 

  • 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. Madison is wearing size M and is 5'10", 34" bust, 29" waist, 40" hip.
  • WE CARE DEEPLY: Redwood brown top with moon phases 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!

Super comfy set ✨

I got the set with the matching shorts and they’re super comfy as always. Colors are slightly different in this batch, I was expecting more of a reddish/warm orangey brown like Hayley hand dyes but it’s exactly like cocoa powder brown( Not a big deal but I was hoping for a more reddish/ orange look for fall ) majority of the screen printing label came off in the first wash and the moon screen printing kinda faded on the shorts but I like the “cloudy” moon look

The positive reviews are legit!!

I was reading all the very favorable reviews of these tops and I was like "why does everyone love these so much?? Is it possible they all have very different bodies from me cuz I can't imagine a crop top being THAT flattering on my mushy rolls and saggy boobs." But now I get it. This fabric is so high quality- thick and soft. I LOVE the graphics and I YES to doing a cardio barre class without a bra on. For reference I'm 5'6" 160lbs with a short torso and a 34C/D bra size and a wide ribcage. The medium fit absolutely perfectly. I'ts a great length with high waited leggings. There's no weird poking or cutting. Super flattering and I am now going to buy all the other patterns and colors so I can wear these all the time with everything. Done.

Love this top!

I bought this top (size medium) and the matching leggings. Absolutely love the top. I like that it is double layered, so I don't have to wear a bra with it. Flattering fit. The fabric is super soft. Color is more brownish/darker as other reviews say, which I was expecting. The color feels earthy and beautiful.

I live in this top!

I wear this top so much it’s almost embarrassing! It is so comfortable I literally do everything in this top, from yoga, to walking my dogs, to going to the grocery store. I’m also currently a breastfeeding mama and it’s so easy to nurse in this top. I love it and want about 8374828 more Purusha People tops!
