“Love is something eternal; the aspect may change, but not the essence.” – Vincent van Gogh

$ 78.00 USD

 

  • 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: Double layered and supportive without being overly compressive. Get the support of a bra without wearing a bra at all!

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!

 

Dyed shades of aspen and botanical green. White flowers from my garden 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!

Beautiful color and amazing quality

I was hesitant to spend so much on a top, but I really appreciated the transparency into where the cost comes from, so I decided to take a chance. As someone who is used to spending $20 on fast fashion tops, the difference is night and day! It is clearly thoughtfully designed, made with superior materials, and with a focus on quality. The shirt feels like a compression sports tank and is supportive enough to wear braless, so that's how I've been wearing it. The top is stretchy, so you could size down for more compression or up for more boob room. My one complaint...I have the combo of small band/big bust, so unfortunately the top REALLY squishes my boobs down to nothing, which isn't really that flattering. I can't really wear a bra under it because it shows in the arm holes and also pulls the top up so much it is more of a sports bra than a long crop tank. But, if you are a standard matrix bra size OR are looking for something minimizing this probably wouldn't bug you. For me, I'll just accept that it's for sports and other times when I don't care if it looks like I lost 5 cup sizes off my boobs lol

SET OF MY DREAMS!

Hands down, the sexiest outfit I've ever owned. I can't describe how good I feel in this. Knowing it's made with earth & body friendly materials and by a company I have been loving for years are cherries on the top. I could fill a book with all the reasons why I love Purusha People, but really you should just check them out yourself and see just how amazing clothes can be when it's done this good.
