The stars are a part of us, we are made of the very same materials as the heavens. I had the stars and the heavens in mind while mixing up these blues, greens, and silvers!


92% organic cotton 8% spandex. This sweatshirt is medium weight and single layered. Hand dyed sage ocean blue and green and hand printed with silver stars by Hayley, hand sewn by Nadya. Ready to ship and limited quantities!

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!

Gorgeous color, 6/10 on the fit

I really love the color and I love supporting this company. My favorite thing of all is knowing I’m putting healthy fibers on my body. That said, I could use another two inches on the sleeve, it’s a bit of an uncomfortable length. I am 5’9” and bought my usual size, a large. I’m still wearing it a lot because the color is so gorgeous, I can push the sleeves up to my elbows if it bothers me. It’s very stretchy and I love the star details. I also love that the neckline is loose and comfy, I prefer not to have fabric right up against my neck. I included some awkward photos to show the sleeve length and neckline! Would definitely recommend this company and clothes!

so in love

I can’t say enough positive things about it only the sweatshirt but Haley as well! What an amazing company, Haley was beyond kind generous with my order and I’m in love with my shirt. Its beautiful and super comfy. The star detailing is perfect and v cute. I also love that I’m supporting a small and ethical company. Highly recommend in every regard. For fit help- I’m about 5’5” and currently around 150lbs and 2 months postpartum and my medium fits great!

Haven’t taken it off

I literally haven’t taken this off since I got it. It fits differently than I thought, more like a shirt...but it’s awesome, flattering, comfy and I love love love it. Like all Purusha People clothing, obviously.
