The light calls us home.

The light is where we are from and where we will return. The moment we take our last breath is when we voyage back to the light. It calls us back.

We are the light's home. The light needs our bodies to exist and express itself in material form. Within each of us the light has found a place to call home-- our souls.

 

  • 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: Cropped fit, ruched on the hips, deep v-neck, hits right at the belly button, and pairs beautifully with all our bottoms!
  • WE CARE DEEPLY: Dyed macadamia and cream. Gold metallic moon phase 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!

Every shirt should be cut like this

I love this top so much, I want to wear it every day! The cut is so flattering, the sleeves are the perfect length, the dye on this is just the sweetest color. I hope that more colors become available in this style.

Need more of this style

Love this top, love the cross front, it feels amazing on. This is the second item I got last month where the wolf leggings looked grey but they're more green, and then this I expected more pink n whites in it but it was more orange beigey. Pretty and lovely just finding the images aren't always showing true hues. Pleaseeeeeee make more of this style in all the hues and designs and diff sleeve length ! Please !

I'm in love with this top

I seriously never want to take off my purusha people clothing! This top makes me feel sexy and ulta-comfortable at the same time. There's something about the forest fiber material energetically that just feels so good to me. I love that I'm able to invest in these thoughtfully made wearable works of art from a conscious, ethical, earth-loving company.
